Surprise Kiss with Daniel Smith Watercolors

Dreamerland Crafts with Daniel Smith Watercolors

This is such a happy stamped scene by Dreamerland Crafts! I decided to color it with my Daniel Smith watercolors (which I love!). The secret here is to start light then layer. I love the look. The Tim Holtz/Ideaology Bouquet was the perfect embellishment to match the flowers in the image - I colored both with Twinkling H2Os. Doodlebug Design papers and Karen Bruniston dies complete the card look.

Making the Card

1. Cut light blue cardstock 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches; fold in half to form a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch card base.

2. Cut small red striped sheet (Cream & Sugar) 4 x 5 1/4 inches. Adhere to front of card.

3. Cut a piece of Fabriano Artistico Extra White watercolor paper to about 4 1/2 x 5 3/4 inches (there will be a little extra for die cutting). Stamp Surprise Kiss in Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink using a Stamp Platform or Stamp Positioner. Also stamp image on masking paper (you may want to heat set the image on masking - it may not dry as quickly as usual); fussy cut around mask image with detail scissors. Apply over image on watercolor paper. Stamp bushes - you will have to stamp a couple times to go across card; you may want to mask the first stamped bushes when you stamp the next - if there is a gap, use black Copic Multiliner to connect them. Note: Copic Multiliners come in disposable and metal SP versions; I highly recommend the SP versions as they are refillable and the nibs are replaceable, rather than the plastic disposables that eventually go into a landfill.

4. Watercolor image with Daniel Smith watercolors with either water brush or watercolor brush. I used a number 6 Silver Black Velvet brush. Start with light washes; add thin layers (glazes) of color, allowing each layer to dry in between. Note: I used Twinkling H2Os to color the flowers - just leave them for now.

5. Die cut image with largest crosshatch oval without crosshatches. Die cut light blue cardstock with largest crosshatch oval with crosshatches; adhere to card base. Adhere image to blue oval using dimensional/mounting tape.

6. Cut one of the flower bunches off Bouquet. Watercolor these plus the ones in the image with Twinkling H2Os, Hot Cinnamon and Mallard. Once dry, adhere bouquet where shown.

7. Find "You warm my heart!" sentiment in Cream & Sugar pack. Trim away from page then add tails as shown with detail scissors.
