two-tone watercolor blending video tutorial - its magic!

This magical watercolor effect on these hearts is created with Peerless Watercolors and a water brush. Isn't it magical?!? This technique is fun and easy!

Watch the video below to learn about Peerless Watercolors, the water brushes you will need for this technique, and then finally, how to create this look for yourself! 

For those who would like to watch the video in HD, you can click below:

Inside a water brush, I have placed cut-up, small pieces of Peerless water color. Peerless Watercolor is intense water color that has been applied to paper. You can create palettes of the watercolors easily. The color is picked up off the paper with any type of brush.

When the brush is filled with water, the water takes on the color of the paper. This allows your water brush to now become a colored brush. When you pick up a secondary color with the brush, you can easily create magical-looking blends. For examples of the colors in the brushes, and the blending combinations, be sure and watch the video above.

You can create large ombre images like the hearts from the Gina K Designs stamp set, Geo Thanks. Or, you can create smaller images with the same magic effect! By picking up a smaller amount of color on the brush tip, the smaller images are a breeze to color. Keep in mind that Peerless Watercolors are truly intense. They will also dry darker.

This is so much fun! I have had my Peerless filled brushes for over a year and I love them each time I take them out to play! Have fun creating two-tone magic on your next card!

Sincerely Yours,
