Amazing watercolour technique...




Have you tried it?? I just did!! It's amazing. The new watercolour technique. This technique originated from Crystal French from Denver, and was demonstrated at the Stampin' Up! Seattle Regional Seminar by Connie Ingram. It is so easy. Just ink up an outline image with versamark, emboss with white or other coloured embossing powder. Spritz your image with a water spray bottle enough so you actually see the droplets on the paper. I've used regular whisper white paper and vellum. Then drop several drops of reinker ink onto a palette and using your aquapainter, dip into a colour one at a time and touch an area on your image and the colour "flows" into the space with the water that is there. Amazing. The lilies were done on whisper white card stock and the rose was done on vellum. Quite different effects but so beautiful. I will be showing this technique at my stampers club meeting next month.


Happy stamping...
