Watercolour Week | Faux Watercolouring With Watercolour Wings

I hope you have enjoyed this week of Watercolour, I have LOVED making the samples this week!

This final card is a bit of a cheat though – Faux Watercolouring. I know, it sounds silly, but just take a look…

Faux Watercolour technique featuring Watercolour Wings from Stampin' Up! UK

This is so super simple! It doesn’t even require a brush!

Watercolour Wings is awesome, and I am so pleased that it is with us for another year too. The idea of this stamp set is that you are able to layer different inks and create a watercolour effect butterfly (Faux watercolouring in itself!) however, there is a massive trend around at the moment of sort of running watercolour, where the paint has run. Which is what I have done here. The butterfly is stamped in 3 layers; Pool Party, Marina Mist and Melon Mambo. After each layer the Watercolour paper was spritzed with water and dried with a Heat Tool to create these runs of ink and hard edges. So pretty!

The sentiment is taken from Balloon Celebration and the card is finished with a splatter of Gold Wink of Stella and some Clear Wink of Stella on the centre of the butterfly.
