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.

 Sentiment:
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.
