Hidden Lane watercolored
New Penny Black stamp Hidden Lane is watercolored with zig clean color markers
It’s Friday, it’s Friday!! Whoohoo. I hope everyone’s week has gone well and you’ve been able to get into your crafty space! When I was going through my dehoarding process, of course I got distracted (can anyone say squirrel?!), and in the midst of all of that mess decided I need to improve my Brusho watercolor skills. Because yes, I cannot stay on track and yes, shiny things and baubles always catch my eye:)!!
Anyhoo, I purchased the Hidden Lane by Penny Black and it was the perfect size and type of stamp to get busy!
Brusho is a watercolor crystal and will react when they come in contact with water. I stamped the image with Tea Dye Distress Ink so I could at least see the stamped image. I used a brush to apply water to sections of the image at a time and then tapped in the Brushos and let them do their thing.
I futzed around with just bits and pieces while the crystals were still wet, but for the most part just let the crystals do their work. I came in at the end with my Clean Color markers to add some stronger lines where I needed them and well because I’m not completely confident with my brush work yet!
Thanks for stopping in for a visit! Have a great weekend.
