White Gouache Blossoms – Monochromatic Card

Spread the love

I think my favorite way to color is watercolors, I seem to gravitate towards them most often lately. I won’t profess to be good at it, but it’s my new thing! For this card, I pulled out my new Royal and Langnickel Gouache Watercolor Tubes, swatched them, and gave them a home in a new pallet. 

I nabbed these babies off the Amazon Warehouse Deals and Oh boy!, did I get them at a screaming deal! I’ve been dying to try them out.

Now, one would think, that for my first time playing with my new gouache paints I would go to town, but no, I only used 3 colors! lol. I used the white Titanium White to paint the flowers and leaves, then mixed White into Burnt Umber to create the shading color for the flowers and leaves. Such a rebel Cindy-Lynn!  

What is Gouache? Gouache is basically a mixture of Watercolor Paint and Acrylic Paint. It provides a more opaque color and even looks awesome on dark papers. 

I wanted to keep this card very simple, and very monochromatic. So I stamped the flower from “Forever Blossoms” on a Sahara Sand Mat with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I chose that ink because it will not bleed when wet. I did use 2 coats of paint as I think I mixed too much water into my gouache and it wasn’t opaque enough for me. Once I was done painting, I put a little bit of the paint mixture on the end of an acrylic block then ‘splattered’ the paint onto my paper. I did this with both colors I had mixed up. Added a few sequins (my favorite things!) and a couple of pearls. And that was it! I wish I had made a couple more of these at the same time. It was so easy to do, and the result is so pretty. But, as I only have one, I may hoard it in my stash for a long time before I part with it! haha  I did enter a few challenges for this card.
