INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Measure and cut a 4" x 4" piece of watercolor paper; spread on Rose Gold (Metallic) on the paper with a palette knife.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Allow to dry. (This will be used for cut-out shapes later.)
    Step 1 Example
  3. Print off and transfer the provided hand and flower pattern onto a folded piece of watercolor paper. (The hand and flowers can also be drawn.)
    Step 2 Example
  4. Cut masking tape into a house shape and stick onto the palm of the hand.
    Step 3 Example
  5. To give a watercolor effect, first paint the area around the hand with water. While the area is still wet, use a wet brush to mix a tiny bit of Bahama Blue with water and touch the wet paper with the color.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Keep adding Bahama Blue around the hand until the area is covered to your preference.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Using the same technique as STEP SIX, add Royal Fuchsia to the hand and flowers.
    Step 6 Example
  8. Add Coral Blush to the hand.
    Step 7 Example
  9. If needed, paint Light Buttermilk over the darker areas to lighten.
    Step 8 Example
  10. For the vines and leaves, paint with Matcha Green.
    Step 9 Example
  11. Add Coral Blush to the flowers.
    Step 10 Example
  12. To give dimension, add Light Buttermilk to the edges of the flower petals and Bahama Blue to the leaves.
    Step 11 Example
  13. When paint is dry, remove the masking tape.
    Step 12 Example
  14. Add masking tape to the outer edges of the house shape.
    Step 13 Example
  15. Add another piece of masking tape on the inner edge to create a line. (See photo for placement.)
    Step 14 Example
  16. With a palette knife, add Rose Gold (Metallic) to the line formed with the masking tape.
    Step 15 Example
  17. Continue around the shape of the house. Remove the tape while paint is still wet to get a clean shape.
    Step 16 Example
  18. Cut out drop shapes from the paper painted with Rose Gold (Metallic) in STEP ONE.
    Step 17 Example
  19. Attach the drops to the card with Matte Decou-Page.
