Simple Watercoloring Day 3

Hey friends. Back with some more watercoloring today. This is my 3rd instalment of Simple Watercoloring. You can find Day 1 here and Day 2 here. I love easy techniques and these mini cards came together in a snap. I used Papertrey Ink Circle Scribbles and Inktense pencils for some messy watercoloring. I used a technique I learned from one of Jennifer McGuire’s videos (if you do a search on her site for Inktense Pencils you will find it!). Basically, you wet a brush and touch it to the tip of the pencil. This gives you a lot of control over the consistency (i.e. how much water) and the color intensity. I have found this by far the easiest way to use these pencils. I have not had tons of success coloring directly on paper and then blending & smoothing.

I think they’d be great with a bouquet of flowers or as a small gift. what-you-need_choosen
