More watercolor fun with A Muse Studio and Peerless Watercolors

I’ve been continuing my exploration of watercolor and stamping, using my Peerless watercolor palette…

I created these birthday cards by using a die cut balloon as a stencil. I used one of the A Muse Studio balloon dies and cut a balloon shape out of a scrap of card stock. I then took a very light pencil and traced some balloons onto watercolor paper.

I used my Peerless watercolors to color in the balloons, being careful to let each color of balloon dry before moving onto the next (to avoid any unwanted blending of colors.) To speed up the drying, I used my Milwaukee heat tool.

I used a pencil and a t-square ruler to draw in the balloon strings and Copic markers and twinkle stickers to add some “confetti” to this version of the card. For the blue/green version of the card I used sequins to add “confetti”.

I really enjoyed working on these two cards and I’m sure I’ll use this technique for creating birthday cards in the future. If you have any questions I’d be happy to answer, just leave them in the comments!  Thanks for having a look today.
