Colorado Craft Company – Big & Bold Dogwood Thanks

Hey Friends!

Today I’m sharing a watercolor card using the Big & Bold Dogwood Thanks set from Colorado Craft Company. I love the Big & Bold line so I was excited to color this one! I love Dogwood trees in the springtime. It’s Missouri’s state tree! I especially love the pink ones!

I stamped the image over Arches Cold-Pressed watercolor paper using light hybrid ink for no-line watercoloring. I used only 3 Daniel Smith watercolor colors on today’s card: Quinacridone Magenta and Quinacridone Purple, and Undersea Green. I layered the Magenta and Purple colors to get the shade I wanted. Then I incorporated some of the Magenta into the leaves as well with the Undersea Green. The flora centers are created with a light wash of Undersea Green. Once dry, I went back in with a thicker coating of the Undersea Green to add texture.

I don’t tape my panel down while I’m watercoloring so to straight out my panel when I’m done if there’s any warpage, I run the panel through a laminator – it flattens it all out nicely. I hope you find that tip helpful! I should also say, you want to run any type of embossing through a laminator – it will make a big mess! After straightening out my panel, I splatted the panel with white and Undersea Green paint.

I finished by attaching my embossed sentiment and embellishing with some iridescent sequins. I hope you like it! Usually, I don’t blend paints, but I tried to be a little different with this one since the image was larger.

Thanks so much for visiting today!
