The best day of the week is when the Snipin’ Sisters get to create cards together. Monday was just such a day. In addition to the ‘card in a card’ we featured in Monday’s blog, we also had fun with with our stamp pads and paintbrushes.
I can’t express enough how easy and fun using a bit of water with our inks and some favorite stamps can be. If you liked coloring as a kid you will love this process. I use both watercolor paper and card stock. Watercolor paper colors best, but stamped ink adheres to card stock best. Experiment with each to see which you prefer. I use black Stazon ink for stamping an image as it is waterproof, but any waterproof ink should be fine. The process then is as easy as 1-2-3:
- Stamp your image on the paper of your choice.
- Wet your brush and dip it into the ink pad
- Paint away!
Watercoloring is a very forgiving medium. Paint a little outside the lines, no problem. Watercolor is supposed to look that way. Too much water, let a dry brush soak up as much water as you wish. The hardest part— deciding the colors you want to use.
We encourage you try this idea. It’s SO fun!
