Swan Lake

More Swan Lake using Watercoloring techniques

I have a couple more Swan Lake cards to show you today. I loved watercoloring this darling stamp set, which is from the Stampin Up Occasions Catalog.

I shared a Swan Lake card the other day, using the watercolor pencils and blender pens, which I did use on one of the cards that I'll show you here.

This card uses the new watercolor pencils from Stampin Up!


We will do a very similar card at Kim's Card Class this coming week. I can't wait for all of you to use the new stamp set and the awesome watercolor pencils.

I used our tear tape to attach the pool party satin ribbon and silver sequin trim. The dragonflies were stamped in soft sky onto soft sky cardstock and I drew the trails with the Stampin Up journaling pen.


It looks great from any angle :)


This card was colored with the aqua painters dipped in ink refills. The splatter was made by splattering the aqua painter over the watercolor paper.


I added a rhinestone to the middle of the cute Classy Designer button to give it a little sparkle.


This makes such a darling thank you card for a wedding, or really any occasion.


Here's a recap of all the Swan Lake cards including the one that I posted last week.

Such a great stamp set. I love creating with the darling images in this sweet stamp set.

Stampin Up: "Swan Lake" simplicity

I have a quick card to share with you today. Its made with the new Swan Lake stamp set from the Stampin Up Occasions Catalog 2017. I wanted to use watercoloring on this card, because its a great "outline" image to color.

Of course, I had to try out the brand new Stampin Up Watercolor Pencils. The pencils were so easy to use and I blended them out with our blender pens. So simple!


All I did was stamp the images in basic black archival ink, then I outlined the images with the watercolor pencils. I then used the blender pen to pull the color from where I outlined the image to color in with. When using blender pens, be sure to clean the tip between colors by swiping it on your scratch paper until the tip comes clean.


The great thing about the new Watercolor Pencils is that they coordinate with our exclusive Stampin Up colors! So, they match our cardstock, inks, ribbons, etc. So awesome!

For the water/sky, I simply scribbled across the cardstock to lay a bit of color down and then blended it out with the blender pens.


I have more Swan Lake cards to show you- so be sure to stop back!

Until then...

Keep on Stampin and Come back again soon!
