More Watercoloring

In my last post, I played with an old “ink and drag” technique using Art Impressions stamps and inspiration.

This card, also an Art Impressions image, still uses watercolor techniques, but in a more traditional way — stamping and coloring.

I stamped the image in Imagine Craft’s Memento Tuxedo Black on the smooth side of Ranger/Tim Holtz Watercolor Paper. To create my colors, I scribbled Faber-Castell PITT Big Brushes on an acrylic sheet. Using that as my palette, I picked up the colors with my water brush. I love how the colors came out — vibrant and easily blended and shaded.

I ran a piece of mint card stock (Paper Source) through an embossing folder (We R Memory Keepers/American Crafts), trimmed and mounted it to a top-folding card base. I mounted the car image on foam tape. So fast and easy! I love the way the Art Impression images lend themselves to my watercolor obsession — the images do all the heavy lifting and I get to color!

I’m also very happy with the color from the Big Brushes and will be using them more in my watercolor journey!

Thanks for popping in.
