Watercolor Peony Posey with Tupelo Designs LLC

Todays card was inspired by the colors of Grand Traverse Bay in the summer time; blues, teals and turquoise.  The stamp is Peony Posie by IndigoBlu and is a fairly elaborate image, so I wanted to keep the background simple and understated.  I used a simple wet on wet technique and just laid down stripes of color and after it was dried, I added a few sequins to finish it up.  Here is the link to the video on my YouTube channel and don't forget to subscribe so you don't miss out ;)

Thanks for stopping by and hanging out with me!  You can do this technique with any colors and any watercolors.  Gansai Tambi and Koi are two other palettes that I have that are great quality, affordable watercolors that are a little more crafter-friendly.  Daniel Smith are professional grade paints and as an artist, they are my favorite.  However, don't let not having a specific product stop you from creating with what you do have.  I promise you, improvising is something we designers do constantly!  So don't wait until you have this or that to be creative; you can do fantastic things with the supplies you have (even if it's just your kids crayola colored pencils!).  See you next time!

Much love,
