It’s Technique Tuesday! Today I want to talk to you about watercoloring in detail.
Sometimes when we watercolor it goes towards backgrounds or eclectic layouts. Well today I want to show you how to watercolor in detail. So I have taken the fine tip of the Water Painters and filled the barrel with water. I then dropped about 4 drops each of the ink colors Magenta Madness, Bumblebee, and Just Jade on to a clear block.
I then dripped one or two drops of water from the brush tip on to the chosen color. When coloring I went to the center of the image and just barely dropped the color. After I moved the ink as I wanted with the brush being careful to not add any more water or ink.
The stems and some of the detail is difficult to see in the photo. When I first stamped the image I did it with the Versamark Pad and then embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Then a quick zap with the Heat Tool and I was ready to color or paint.
If you create with this technique please let me know how it turns out.
With inky fingers,
