A Just Because Card with Concord and 9


Hi Friends! Happy Thursday, It's almost the weekend - Hang in there.
I created this card for the Where Creativity Meets c9 watercolor challenge! I used both actual watercolors and the Concord and 9th faux watercolor stamp, brushed blossoms.

I only just now got around to actually swatching my Gansai Tambi watercolors and would you believe it, all those red looking inks are actually other colors?! I was always so intimidated because I just though it was a bunch of shades of red, turns out, it just looks that way in the pan!

I used the No.34 color here, which as you can tell, is pink!

My Process

I started with a panel of Ranger Watercolor paper cut to 5.5 x 4.25
I laid down a generous amount of water, in the area I wanted to watercolor only, keeping it away from the edges
I used a palette to create a wet mixture of the No.34 color from the Gansai Tambi water colors, and dropped it around the wet part of my card, moving and mixing it around until I got the look I wanted
I used a heat gun to dry the pink, and then splattered on some of the gold color from the set
Once everything was good and dry, I stamped my sentiment from the Concord and 9th Brushed Blossoms set in Hero Arts black ink
Next I used a gray Hero Arts ink, soft granite, to stamp the first layer of the flowers around my sentiment, and then the black ink for the 2nd layer, and finally Unicorn White for the little centers
To finished I mounted everything on an a2 card base
