Card Tutorial Mini Watercolor Lesson: No Line Watercoloring to Create Painterly Effects

No Line Watercolor to Create Painterly Effects

Today, I’m taking a deeper dive into watercolor for cardmakers AND I’m sharing my step by step technique on how I achieve painterly (no line watercolor) effects with stamped images. This video is a bit longer than my usual tutorials and it’s set up like a mini-lesson so you can follow along. I’m covering water to paint ratios, color layering and “getting the glow” with watercolor. It’s an in-depth tutorial, I hope you’ll enjoy!
