Trying a New Technique

Recently I’ve been experimenting with watercolor to decorate  some of my stamped images.  This technique is nothing new, but is new to me.   It’s really  simple, very forgiving,  and lots of fun.  I stamp the outline of my image in black Stazon ink.  Then I dip my brush into water, load the brush with color from my ink pad and away I go.  If the color is too intense just add a little water with the brush and repaint that section.  I’ve used both card stock and watercolor paper.  See the results below.  The top picture is done with card stock and the second one is on watercolor paper .  Both papers seem to work.  


I hope you will give this a try.   The best part about this technique is that you probably already have everything you need. 

Have fun!
