Still searching for watercolor options that give me something I don’t throw away! So Suzy Stamps March challenge is watercolor…and it is a challenge for me!
This is another option that I like. The other one is similar…instead of using the pads it uses the reinker.
I wanted to attempt to create something that I could use as a background for a natural scene. So, blues.
- Cut watercolor paper to size.
- Stamp Distress Inks (Peacock, Ocean, and Jeans) onto parchment paper. Then mist with water using mini mister (2-3 sprays).
- Mist paper with water.
- Use a watercolor pen to spread the color around. I have done this technique before without this step and not liked the result. I’m not sure if this made the difference, but I like the result this time!
- Sop up the remaining color by dragging through the remaining ink on the parchment paper.
- Allow to dry.
