Happy Thursday! Welcome back to another stamping therapy session. Today I have a video tutorial for an easy watercolor background. Sometimes its nice to make easy quick cards. This is a old technique that I don’t really see used much anymore. Maybe you have seen it and forgot about it or maybe you are new to stamping and have never seen it. Either way it’s a fun technique.
Easy watercolor background
With the revolution of the MISTI. It’s nice to get some use out of those acrylic blocks that are just hanging around. You can use different shapes then I did here. Square, rectangle, and circle would all be fun to use with this technique as well. Of course I couldn’t just do one. Here are two more samples using different colors.
I used distress markers in seedless preserves, salty ocean, and fossilized amber. Then stamped the birds in VersaFine Clair ink in Monarch and drew the lines with a purple sharpie pen.
I used distress markers in candied apple, carved pumpkin, and fossilized amber. Then stamped the birds in VersaFineClair ink in Nocturne and drew the lines with a black sharpie pen.
I hope you found some inspiration for this easy watercolor background. If you try this technique out for yourself, tag me over on the Unity Show and Tell Facebook group. I would love to see what you make with this technique. I love seeing your creations so much. If you missed last weeks stamping therapy post.
