Hello Darling Friend Flower Cup

Today, I’m using some watercolor markers called “Clean Color Real Brush” by Zig to color some stamped images. I used a triadic color scheme with yellow-orange, violet, and turquoise blue to color in the flowers and the flower cup. To give the images some life, I created some shading by putting down the turquoise green on half of the flower centers and then mixing the ink with some water and using a paint brush to add the lighter color to finish coloring in the flower centers. I used a yellow and an orange marker to color the flower petals. I didn’t use water with these two colors. Instead, I colored the base of the petals with the orange marker and then used the yellow marker to pull out the orange to the rest of the petal, giving a yellow-orange color for the flower petals. Don’t forget to clean your yellow marker of the orange ink once your are done by simply coloring on a blank piece of paper until you see only yellow.

For the flower cup, I used deep violet and light violet. I used a flicking motion to color the right and left edge of the flower cup which left pointy ends on each stoke and an area in the middle of the cup that was not colored. For that area, I used the light violet, blending between the two colors with a violet marker. This technique makes the cup appear rounded and real to life.

Finally, I heat embossed a sentiment on the flower cup with silver embossing powder. Please enjoy the video below:
