Stained Glass

 

Hello everyone, Swarup here, sharing a card/painting, I made for a very close friend of mine for Christmas. Instead of regular colors, I  have used Niji pearlescent  watercolors. I love the way they leave a subtle but effective shine and shimmer, once they are dry. Hard to photograph that shine, but looks awesome in real…perfect for a holiday card.

 

Supplies:

Watercolor paper,

Niji Pearlescent watercolors,

Niji waterbrush,

Stamps-Sweet Stamps-Madonna and child, CAS-ual Fridays Stamps-Sentiment

Taped the paper down, leaving a thin border to frame the work once done.Stamped and colored the image

Damped the background with water and applied a mix of  colors. and stamped the sentiment.

I love the way the Pearlescent watercolors add a whole new dimension to the painting. Hope you would give it a try!

Thanks for stopping by today!
