Hi, Friends! Today I have stepped out details on how to watercolor Pink Ink’s beautiful new Angel on High #6108L. So let’s get started!
1. Stamp angel and sentiment with Versamark ink, then gold heat emboss. The embossing helps to keep the watercolor contained on finely detailed images!
2. Watercolor sky with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, using broad waterbrush.
3. Watercolor angel dress with Spun Sugar Distress Ink, using detailer waterbrush.
4. Add depth to folds of dress with darker Worn Lipstick Distress Marker; blend with waterbrush if needed.
5. Color skin with Antique Linen Distress Marker; blend with waterbrush if needed.
6. Watercolor wings with Fossilized Amber Distress Ink. Concentrate more color under the rows of feathers, to help create depth and accent them.
7. Watercolor hair with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. Add Spun Sugar Distress Marker to cheek; blend with waterbrush if needed.
To finish the card, I trimmed the watercolored panel between the angel and sentiment, and also trimmed a little less than 1/4” off the top of the panel. The panels were separated and adhered with foam tape onto a white card base, with an accent strip of gold foil paper adhered to the card base below the panels.
Do you prefer coloring with just markers? Then use these same steps with either dye based markers on plain or watercolor paper, or use your Copic markers on Copic-friendly paper such as X-Press It Blending Card, and I’m sure you’ll achieve wonderful results!
