it's a beautiful sunny day here and i thought i'd share something cheerful and bright with you. I had fun putting a video tutorial together while i watercoloured this dahlia using ink refills (full list of supplies at the end of the post).
i used the picked raspberry distress ink to stamp the flower and i used different ink refills to color it. the result is a "no lines" image using shadows to delimit each petal.
i could spend hours watercolouring. i love watching the ink find its way through water channels and i love the intensity of the colours. below is the video i put together as well as other photos.
enjoy and have a lovely day! CeeCee
the one above was done using the same method during an impression obsession workshop.
this one is different in that i embossed the image with white powder, making it a little bit easier to color since the embossed lines resist the ink.
