Hi everyone! Welcome back! I just wanted to share with you all a request that I had for one of the cards I had previously made using watercolor. I'm not an artist, but I find that by using my stamp sets I can make some really wonderful watercolor art.
Watercolor has a transparency to it that just lends to soft colors and lines. While you will think that watercolor is difficult it is fairly forgiving because you don't require hard and stiff lines for this typeof art. Don't be afraid to try. You can also find more advanced tutorial on YouTube that will help advance you skills.
For this project you will need the following: Stamp of your choice, a peach or neutral dye inker, a small brush for watercolor, a watercolor pallet, two cups of water, a paper towel and watercolor paper (Canson's). For the most part you can find all your crafting needs at Michael's and Hobby Lobby.
Just a note** For card making you do not need to spend much on the watercolors if you are a beginner. Some water colors can become very expensive. If you have Tim Holtz Distress Ink, that will work just as well.
Now you are ready to begin and follow along in the tutorial below. Please make sure you have plenty of light to be able to see where you are lying down your paint.
