Let's Craft Together and share Watercolouring

Hello and Welcome to Handmade by Julia Quinn.

I'm part of a fantastic group of like minded crafters sharing inspiration in our monthly blog hop!  

This Month, we are sharing and featuring Watercolouring!  

Watercolouring is one of my favourite techniques - I can feel a bit artistic and not really need any skill!!  The stamped images help do all the work for me!  (And I do love the 'artistic look' of slightly messy watercolouring - no precision required!!)

I'm featuring a NEW bundle/suite coming in our New Catalogue starting in May (perks of being a demonstrator is that I can get these things early!) called Country Woods.  The background paper is the Country Woods DSP (and it has a look of watercolouring!!) and the stamp set is the Country Flowers stamp set.  

I've used watercolour paper and Saddle Brown stazon ink to stamp my images.  I then added ink using a water painter. 

To add the ink, I smooshed my ink pad onto a stamping block, and then used my water painter to pick up the colour, water it down for changes in tone and shade, and then painted the image from the left to the right leaving some bits on the right side unpainted for light reflection.  

Inside the card is some more painted leaves and flowers just for fun!!  

Make sure you keep hopping to see LOTS of amazing projects!!  I'm sure you'll love them all.
