Gelatos Dogwood

Today, I’m sharing the softer side of watercoloring.  To this point I’ve used lots of bold colors and today, went for a much softer look.

The dogwoods have been stamped using Gelatos, then I added some Distress Glitter to the centers for a wee bit of sparkle.   I’ve done a soft pink wash across the background and added more texture with a background stamp.  Another Winnie & Walter sentiment…can you tell I love these stamps???  And finally…a smattering of clear sequins.

If you’re looking for some on line classes that are fun, packed full of techniques and tips, the Online Card Classes are simply amazing.  I’m thoroughly enjoying this Watercolor Class!

Here’s what I used:
Paper:  Distress Watercolor paper and SU! Basic Gray (looks much darker in my picture!)
Ink:  Archival Watering Can
Stamps:  Hero Arts, Winnie & Walter The Big, The Bold and The Happy, Club Scrap (texture stamp)
All the other stuff:  Gelatos, water spritzer, paint brush, adhesive, Distress Glitter, sequins

Challenges entered:
Simon Says Spring Flowers
Addicted to Stamps & More – CAS
STAMPlorations:  Stamps & Flowers

Back soon with more my sweet friends…

  1. Lovely effect achieved using the Gelatoes. I had a set gifted to me at Easter instead of chocolate, but had not used mine to a lack of time. You have inspired me to have a play. Thank you for sharing your lovely card 🙂

  3. I finally had a chance to come back and catch up with your homework! Wow, are you ever good at watercoloring, Lee-Anne, whether in bold colors or with a soft palette! This work of art featuring dogwoods should be framed!! I am so excited to get back to class (I'm quite behind) and take a stab at watercoloring with Gelatos! Enjoy the class and thank you for the inspiration!! Hugs, Darnell
