Watercolor contrast Iris flower card tutorial ~ sympathy

 This is a sympathy card featuring a beautiful Iris flower.  I used stamping along with Sakura Koi watercolor with contrast to create this.  The added sentiment is great for showing care and concern.

May you find comfort in loving memories, strength in the support of those who care and hope in each new day.

Helpful tips:

Here are helpful tips for creating this watercolor Iris flower card.  To begin, stamp the Iris flower onto watercolor paper.  Also, stamp the sentiment.  Next, using a paint brush, add watercolor in dark blue in tiny sections where there would be shadows or creases.  Then, with a damp brush, blend out from the dark areas to move the color into the petal areas.  Finally, once dry, trim or die-cut the Iris panel and layer the card, to finish.

I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.
