How to Watercolor Cascading Fuchsias using Spectrum Aqua markers in 8 EZ steps

Good morning, how's it going? Glad you're here with us on the blog today. This week we have an exciting new watercoloring tutorial by Regina Hamilton, design team member.

Regina is from Dallas, Texas but now calls Georgia home. She is a wife and mom. Ever since her 8 year old son David was born, she's been papercrafting. Regina LOVES gadgets- especially dies and machines. She is the proud owner of 5 diecutting machines and just recently added a gold foil machine to her collection. 

Check out her awesome tutorial!!!


Step 1) Stamp Fuchsia Cluster image onto watercolor paper using Tuxedo Black ink.

Step 2) Trace around cascading fuchsias with Spectrum Aqua burgundy marker.

Step 3) Using a Waterbrush, spread color starting from top of flower pulling the ink down.

Step 4) Trace around foliage with a Spectrum Aqua moss marker.

Step 5) Spread color starting from center of leaves pulling the ink to the edge.

Step 6) Place die over image, add burgundy ink around the inside, blend ink with Waterbrush, and die cut image

Step 7) Die cut black cardstock using Decorative Oval die.

Step 8) Cut a 5 x 7 piece of black cardstock, cut a 4 7/8 x 6 7/8 piece of Cascading Fuchsia paper, and glue to card base. Stamp Heart Sentiments image onto watercolor paper using Tuxedo Black ink, die cut sentiment using Victorian Tags die, and adhere sentiment to card using foam dots.
