Card sketch #51 - Watercoloring



Here's card sketch #51 with a watercolor technique! This technique was a lot of fun to play around with!




I started with coloring my stamp with markers, I used Marvy LePlume II. Then I took a piece of watercolor paper and spritzed it lightly with water and then stamped the image. I used my heat gun to dry and then stamped over it with the outline stamp. I used the SU ticket punch for the corners and added white brads for contrast.

For the panel below, I used the same color marker and randomly marked the watercolor paper up. Then I spritzed again with water and let it run, dried it with the heat gun and stamped the flower outline.

The cuttlebug embossed panel was colored by lightly running colorbox alabaster chalk ink over the top of it.

Supplies:
Stamps - SU heartfelt thanks
Marvy LePlume II markers
Palette Noir and french lilac inks
Bazzill card stock
Watercolor paper
Brads

P.S.
Is anyone else out there having issues with the spell checker not working on blogger? Anyone know how to fix it? Sorry if there are any typo's or spelling errors, now you know why!
