Video: Watercolor Splatter Tree with Erum

Hello friends!

Erum here today and I will share with you a watercolor technique I learned in school.

To start, I first stamped the tree skeleton from the Folk Tree Stamp Set with Gathered Twigs distress ink. The reason I used distress ink is that these inks react with water beautifully and will help in creating a faux watercolor look. I will also darken this tree skeleton with Espresso Liquid Watercolor.

Next, I will start building my tree by adding paint splatters. You can watch the process video at the end of this post if you wish to see how this card came about.

The colors I used for the "leaves" are Key lime, Sunshine, Clementine, Candy Apple, Emerald City. There is no order or restriction to this. With this technique you have a lot of creative freedom, you can use your own color palette.

After I was done with the splatters and my tree looked full, I added ground and shadow with a mix of Espresso and Licorice Liquid Watercolours.

In the end, I stamped the sentiment and popped the panel onto Kraft cardstock base.

You can watch the process video below or on YouTube.
