Hey everyone. I’m sharing a simple no-line watercolor piece using the Hero Arts Toucan Bold Print. I love this little guy. As you have heard me mention several times, I love watercoloring. It’s super peaceful for me to create and just let the water flow.
For this card, I first stamped the image with Hero Arts Contour ink onto Hero Arts Lux White watercolor paper. When using watercolor paper, you will need to stamp it multiple times since the paper has texture to it.
Now my toucan needed to be bright and vibrant in color. To help me achieve the color I wanted, I pulled out my mini palette of my favorite Daniel Smith watercolors. One thing to remember when doing no-line watercoloring, you can omit areas that you just don’t want to fill in with color or make certain images bigger by going outside of the line.
After I finished my watercoloring, I set the image aside to dry. Now it was time to trim down the piece and add a back panel that matched one of the colors int he painting. I used Hero Arts Peacock paper for my backer today.
The Peacock cardstock really pulled that gorgeous blue from the image out. Needing a simple sentiment, I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Hero Arts Cockatoo stamp set. Such a find sentiment for this card and others.
Thanks for stopping by today everyone. I hope I’ve inspired you to do a little bit of no-line watercoloring with Hero Arts products. Have a wonderful day and see you back here soon.
