Dove of Hope


Hi Everyone!

Today I used the Dove of Hope stamp set and dies to make some Christmas cards for a card swap I am participating in.  I love these dies! The detail is so pretty.  I cut them out in Shimmery White cardstock and they are lovely in person.  

If you have visited my blog before you know I love to watercolor. I decided to make a simple watercolor 'Earth' behind the dove, but I used some fun colors on this one: Highland Heather, Misty Moonlight and Balmy Blue. 







 This technique is easy to do.  Find a hollow circle of some kind. I used my Tear-Tape.  Use your Water Painter to paint a water only circle inside your template. You will want your water circle pretty wet. Be sure to go around the edges really well.




Remove your circle object that you used for your template and then dip your brush into some ink.  You should have your ink ready to go because you have to work fast.  I add some drops of ink to the kids of my ink pads and paint from there.  You could also ad some drops of ink into a pallet if you have one.  As you touch the color to the water on the paper it will spread into the circle.  The ink will only go to the wet areas, so it will make your circle appear.  

Have some fun with it! They all turn out different and lots of fun water-blooms happen.  

When choosing colors, avoid using colors that are opposites on the color wheel, these will turn brown when they mix.
