This Artsy Watercolor Technique is another in my series on quick and easy techniques. It doesn’t need many supplies and your card front will look amazing. here’s my original sample of the Artsy Watercolor Technique.

Artsy Watercolor Technique

Artsy Watercolor Technique Basic Tools Used:

Artsy Watercolor Technique 1

I’ve used the same flower image as the front except I have stamped it in a coordinating colour instead of Basic Black Archival ink. We’re using Basic Black Archival Ink because it’s water fast and when working with water, it’s the best one to use. You could also use Basic Gray Archival Ink. Now watch the video to see just how easy this technique is:

Thank you for your support. I appreciate it.
So, did you like that? You can use any colour combination, any sentiment and any stamp set.

Things to remember:

  • Use Watercolor Paper
  • Use water based inks such as Stampin’ Up Classic Ink Pads
  • Give the stamp a decent spritz but don’t make it drip
  • Use Archival safe ink for the details and sentiment
