Tips on using watercolor with Mixed Media Sheets: little water goes a long way. Don’t oversaturate the brush or the area. Practice to see how the watercolor spreads. Once you saturate the area the color spreads, but the details are lost. It takes some time to dry, use a heat tool to speed up the process. Use colored pencils to add more detail to the images. I love the “feathered” look of the edges.
Spring Watercolor Card Created With Mixed Media Sheets
1. Paint several flowers and leaves on Therm O Web iCraft® Mixed Media Sheets Heavy Weight, let dry and cut out. Add details using colored pencils.
2. Make card from cardstock. Die cut frame elements from white cardstock and adhere to the card using Therm O Web Sticky Tape Mini Runner™. Adhere the center frame using 3D White Foam Squares Combo Pack.
3. Arrange watercolor flowers in the center of the card and adhere using Therm O Web Zots™ Small and Therm O Web Zots™ Large. Tie twine into a bow and tuck it into a flower bouquet using Therm O Web Zots™ Small.
4. Die cut and stamp the sentiment and adhere it to the card using Therm O Web 3D White Foam Squares Combo Pack.
5. Dot the card front with Therm O Web Deco Foil™ Liquid Adhesive 2.1oz, let dry and apply Therm O Web Deco Foil™ Transfer Sheets Summer Rainbow.
