Watercoloring is a very special technique that most artists use with a brush and watercolor set. In today’s tutorial, I show you how to use a watercolor technique and the Misti stamping tool to stamp a watercolor image instead of using a brush. Creating this effect is very simple if you combine Ink Potion No. 9, Memento Inks and Kaleidacolor Inks. Let me show you just how easy it is:
Ink your mat with the colors of ink that you want to use. Be sure to not intentionally mix the colors, just ink the mat and spray it with Ink Potion No. 9.
I am using a double step stamp set. One stamp is the border and the other is the inside layer. Stamp the border images with Peanut Brittle Memento Ink.
Ink the solid image directly over the ink that you have on the mat and stamp it over your cardstock. If you want you can re-ink the image with the mat colors and re-stamp to create different tones.
To finalize the card I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Clair in Shady Lane and clear embossing powder. Then I resized the layer with a stitched die cut and pasted it over a card base. Easy and beautiful don’t you think? Comment below!
