Easy Watercolouring With Blended Bloom


Have you ever wanted to give watercolouring a go but have been put off by how difficult it seems?  It's really not that difficult, but this technique makes it super easy to do!

Isn't the flower gorgeous? I darkened the Watermelon Wonder a little using Photoshop so that you could see the variation in colour in the flower.

I think the technique is called Watercolour Splash.  To get the look you simply heat emboss your image using White Embossing powder onto Watercolour Paper. Then you take your Aqua Painter and brush a fair bit of water over the areas you want to colour (no ink used yet!). Then you use the Aqua Painter to pick up some ink from the lid of your inkpad and simply dip the tip of the brush into the water you brushed over the image. It's like magic watching the ink spread through the water! If you want parts of the image to be darker just add a little more ink. I did the petals in Watermelon Wonder first and then waited for it to dry before doing the centre of the flower in Daffodil Delight and Crumb Cake.

So there you have it - watercolouring is really not that hard. Why don't you give it a go?

Bye for now,
