jane davenport creative sample watercolor cards/invitations

Step 1
Using the acrylic stamps, stamp a face onto the bottom of the card. 
Step 2
Create a multi-colored watercolor wash for the hair. You can also extend the wash into the stamped face area. 
Step 3
Color the lips, eyes, cheeks, and other areas using the watercolors. 
Step 4
Add hair marks, lines to indicate clothing, face details, and highlights using the Inkredible pen and Paint Over pens.
 
TIP: Because you are applying water to non-watercolor paper, the cards will warp. You can solve this problem by carefully ironing the cards. Allow each card to dry completely. Then place the card between layers of paper towels or cloth and press firmly, having the iron on a high setting. Be sure to test an area of the card first and do not use steam. You could also press the cards between heavy books to correct the warping
