Create a Stunning Faux Watercolor Effect with Yana — This Week on MFTv!

Watercoloring is an incredible technique for adding color and softness to your projects, and few images benefit from a watercolor treatment more than florals. Many people prefer the control of markers over the inherent (but often beautiful) unpredictability of watercolor, though. This week's episode of MFTv provides some perfect inspiration for your next project if you fall into that category! Watch below to learn how Yana crafted this stunning card using a faux watercolor technique.

Lovely card! Really enjoyed watching you apply color to the flowers. They turned beautifully. Using multiple layers of the die added great dimension. Thanks for sharing.
