Have you ever wanted to create your own watercolor card but just aren’t sure where to start? I know it can be difficult to work up the courage to draw a scene starting from scratch!
I recently came across a cool line of stamps from Art Impressions, a US stamping company that takes most of the hard work out of the process for you! These cool stamps are mix and match and work perfectly with a watercoloring technique. And if you don’t watercolor, that’s not a problem either because I know they’d work fab with Copic markers, other alcohol based markers or colored pencils. Even chalks and pastels would work!
Basically you start with the stamping and then fill in the color. I like to use the Ranger Jet Black Archival ink to create the scene as this ink gives an amazing impression and then is waterproof. It’s got staying power! Then I start building up the color using watercolors and for this design I used the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers as their fine tips are fab for getting fine detail right where you want it.
Quick Tip: Always use watercolor paper when watercoloring so that the color moves well. Try out different paper and watercolor combos to find the ones that work best for you!
Have a creative day!
