Video: Faux Watercoloring with a MISTI

Hello friends! It's Channin here with a new card and video to share!! In this video I share how to create a colorful bunch of flowers and leaves with a faux watercolor technique using a MISTI. This easy technique gives your florals that watercolor look with very little actual painting.

Faux Watercoloring with a MISTI

Watch below on my YouTube channel.

To create this card I first stamped several leaves from the Peony Bouquet Stamp Set onto a panel of watercolor paper. I partially inked the top portion of the leaves in Peeled Paint distress ink and then stamp. Next, I inked up the bottom portion of the leaves in Pine Needles distress ink and then stamped. I then inked up the top of the leaves again in Peeled Paint, then spritzed with water and then stamped. I then inked up the bottom of the leaves with Pine Needles, spritzed with water, and then stamped. 

Next, with a brush I quickly colored in the open areas of the leaves with the water downed ink. Then I used my heat gun to dry the ink and then stamped the leaves one last time with two inks to enhances the details in the images.

Next, I basically repeated this process for flowers from the Peony Bouquet and the Zinnia Stamp Sets with different distress ink colors. After I had finished stamping my flowers I then die cut them and the leaves out with the matching dies. I then created my sentiment by stamping "hello" from the Simply Said 1 Stamp Set in VersaFine Onyx Black and then heated embossed it in clear. Next, I die cut the sentiment and two unstamped "hellos" out and then adhered them all together to create a dimensional sentiment. 

I then splattered white watercolor paint over the front of a Kraft A2 card base. Once the paint had completely dried I then adhered the flowers with foam squares and then the sentiment with liquid glue. 

I hope you enjoyed my card and video! Thank you so much for stopping by!
