Watercolor With Fireworks Tutorial
One of the advantages of the watercolor technique is that you will never obtain two identical pieces, but with Fireworks you can control and keep your design just the way that you want. Today I will show how easy it is to use the watercolor technique to make a Congratulations Wedding Card. Welcome!

    Stamp the sentiment over watercolor paper using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I used a Congratulations word from the Every Day Sentiments stamp set by Joy Clair.

    Take a detailed stencil and secure it over your watercolor paper. I used the Glorious Petal Stencil by Hero Arts. With a palette knife apply the creative Medium Clear keeping the stamped area clean or without the medium. As soon you finish, remove the stencil and wash it with warm water and let the piece of waterpaper dry.

    In a separate piece of watercolor paper stamp the flower images using VersaMark and White Embossing Powder. I used one flower included on the stamp set Love is in the Air from Dare 2B Artzy. To decorate my project I used three flowers.

    This is the best step of the process, because now you can color the flowers using the Fireworks Spray Ink in your favorite colors but you will need to apply the color with a paint brush to obtain the watercolor effect. For me the best way to colored was creating two spots of spray ink over my mat, one mixed with water and other in natural condition. I used two different colors on my flowers , Sweet Plum and Potter’s Clay.

    Paste the stenciled layer over a color layer and as final touch you can add some ink dots with the spray stick of the Fireworks directly over the stenciled design. If you want you can also use a paint brush.

    Finalize your card by pasting the watercolor flowers over the stenciled design using double sided foam tape or dimensionals and then the decorated layers over a card base.
