Create your own shimmering watercolour styles cards using colourable images from Tattered Angels, along with their stunning range of Glimmer Mists.
Select your image to colour and familiarise yourself with the image, taking note of the dark and light tones. It is also a good idea to take a photo that you can use as a reference as you work!
Block out the whole image in a base colour; for this design I have chosen Italian Sunset.
Next, using a fine round brush – apply a mid-tone colour to the mid grey areas. Here I have used Crimson.
Go over the whole image in your base colour, this blends the mid tones and brings the image layers together.
Using darker colours and a fine brush, begin adding details to your shadows. Working in layers adds depth to the piece. For my shadow colours I used Merlot Gold and Rust Red. I used the tip of my fine brush to and fine lines to the petals to create texture.
Add highlights to the tops of the petals where light would be – Precious Metals gives a great light effect.
Paint in the centre of the flower using Graphite and Black Magic.
Finally mat and layer you card, cut round your image and fix in place using foam pads. For added effect spray one of your layers in a coordinating colour to really draw the design together.
