Water Well

 This card features a Vintage Watercolor Technique. You can find the tutorial that I followed at Vintage Watercolor. Although the technique looks a bit difficult, I found it to be fun. I like the smudges and the script. What do you think?

I did follow the steps on the tutorial, but I made it mine by using the supplies I had available.

First, I created my masks: wheel-barrel and water well. I stamped the image on a scrap piece and fussy cut it out. I then applied a tad of temporary adhesive to the back. This way I could hold it in place, but remove it when I was done. Some adhesive is both temporary and permanent, depending on how you apply it.

I then stamped my water well on the left side of my panel and the wheel-barrel on the right side.

Next, I placed my masks over these images. I then stamped the other images. I began with the script writing on the top of the panel, followed by the trees, grass, and flowers.

I then removed the masks and colored in my images, using my watercolor pencils. 

Then came the fun part, I applied water to the images. I kept a paper towel handy just in case I got carried away. 

I then added the water spots and smudges. I think it turned out nicely. This is definitely a one of a kind card. Have fun and get creative with your supplies.

  1. It has been a long time since I did vintage water color. Your images are so wonderful for this technique and a great scene too.

  2. Very nice!

    It still makes no sense about when I can comment and when I can't, so I will comment when I can.
