Masculine card with Inktense watercolor pencils.

For today's Watercolor Wednesday, we are working with Inktense watercolor pencils along with masculine card stamping.

Any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a Dad. 

For this masculine Father themed card, I began by stamping in different colors using the Misti and watercolor paper.  Color was added using watercolor pencils.  Then, I fussy cut and layered everything to finish the card.

The full article and tutorial are up on the Unity blog.
I also made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.

Masculine Card with Inktense Watercolor Pencils
By Gaylynn Martling for Unity’s Watercolor Wednesday
(See also the video tutorial for this project.)

Begin by stamping with waterproof ink onto watercolor paper.  I used Ranger archival ink and the Misti.
For watercolor, lightly sketch near the outlines with Inktense watercolor pencils onto dry paper.
Using a wet watercolor brush, pull out the color from the sketches.  Repeat with all color sections. 
Add more watercolor layers if you want.  Heat set between different colors, especially for detailed areas.
Another way to get watercolor from the pencil is brush to pencil tip.  Dab a wet brush over the tip to make a color palette.
I like this method to get a lighter shade or mixing different colors together.
Once dry cut out the car, the sentiment and the frame.  Assemble all of the layers to finish.
