Distress Inks for Watercoloring

Plus add in some Zig Clean color markers for a perfect watercolored card.

Happy Sunday to everyone.  I hope you’ve had a great weekend.  It’s a perfect day to day to hide away in my craft room since, oh shucks the day is gray, cloud and foggy an no yard work can be done!

A big thanks to everyone who had fun playing with the Clean Color Real Brush markers with me yesterday.  All of you did an amazing job and were whizzes at all of the techniques.  I can’t wait to see what you create.

Speaking of real brush markers and watercoloring..

I love love love these Penny Black stamps that make water coloring so stinkin’ easy.  This stamp is called Le Fleur Rouge.  I’m sure the flower is supposed to be red, but I’m not quite ready to pull out the Christmas colors just yet and went with shades of blue.  I stamped the flower portion of the image with Tumbled Glass DI and the stem and leaves with Shabby Shutters.  As I told the awesome students yesterday, if I want to go with the no line look, I will use DIs that will complement the marker colors I’m going to use.

I used a variety of different techniques.  The background was done with a color wash and the rest of the image was done with either the palette coloring, straight blending an the waterbrush techniques.

That’s it for this Sunday and thanks for stopping by!!
