Hello! It’s Kari, and today I have a fun project using the Watercolor Pens and the Bountiful Blooms set from the September Hedgehog Hollow Subscription Box.

I am not usually a “messy watercolorist,” but these watercolor pens make it so easy to create this look on a project!

I stamped the blooms onto Canson XL watercolor paper with amalgam black ink from Gina K. Then I used the watercolor pens to draw on some color and move that color around using a water brush.

With just four colors in this set of markers, it is still so easy to add shading and variation!

I finished it off with a sentiment that I white heat embossed on black card stock. Jewel Nuvo Drops added some texture and interest, and the centers of those beautiful flowers have just a touch of glitter! Here’s a close up of that lovely free watercoloring:

I have a video to show you how to get that look and how to use the purple pen for shading! Watch it here or on YouTube:

I hope you enjoyed this project today! I’d love to see your “messy watercoloring” projects. For more information about these boxes, check out the shop here.

See you next time!
