Warm Wishes w/Watercolor Pencils (+Giveaway)

by | Oct 17, 2018 | Blog, Colored Pencils, Giveaway, Happy Thoughts, Hero Arts, Ink Blending, Watercolor

Hello and welcome! Today, Hero Arts and Marvy Uchida are joining forces in celebration of one another with a mini-hop. I’ve featured the Marvy Uchida Color In line Watercolor Pencils, Blender Pen and Water Brushes, along with Hero Arts Bundle Up stamp and die set. I think they’ve come together quite nicely as a charming little Warm Wishes greeting card. Follow along for the quick how to!

I’ve created this A2 card by first ink blending an Indigo sky on Snow Layering paper and then matting with a frame created by a Hero Arts Postage Infinity die and a Rectangle Infinity die. The Warm Wishes sentiment tucked perfectly into place atop the frame stamped in Intense Black ink.

I also stamped images from Hero Arts Bundle Up in Intense Black. I’ve colored them with the Marvy Uchida Color In Watercolor Pencils. I drew in a bit of color in the darkest area and then blended out to create the highlight. The girl’s red jacket was blended with water in a fine waterbrush and that creates a bit of texture, somewhat like a wool. I blended the squirrel and boy’s sweater with the Blender Pen, and that created a smooth – more cashmere look. I enjoyed using both of the blending techniques to create different textures within the same project.

Mount all elements together, some with foam tape and some flat, for interest and dimension. Adhere to folded card base.
