Good morning! I’m back today for the weekly Monday feature for me here on the Unity Stamp Company Blog! So happy to be featuring the AMAZING Unity Kit of the Month set on Mondays here on the blog. These kits are always AMAZING, and they hold a special place in my heart since they were the first thing I purchased from Unity, and what got me hooked on Unity to begin with. Who DOESN’T love getting a happy package of stamps in the mail every month, right? And these kits just keep getting better and better. You can read all the details and info to sign up HERE, and see this month’s kit as well.
Today I’m sharing how to use watercolor markers two different ways on one project – or you can mix and match them in a different way if you prefer!
Here is today’s video showing how this card was created:
I stamped my image on watercolor paper, then used the Karin markers directly on paper to color my image in – not even doing any blending with water. I then used the same markers to scribble onto a clear block, picked it up with a wet brush, and added the background details.
For a bit of texture and interest, I added some torn white paper behind the watercolored panel, after cutting it down with a rectangle die. You could also just trim the edges with a paper trimmer if you prefer.
Finally, I mounted that panel with foam adhesive on a rustic cream cardbase, just for a bit of difference from the white cardstock with the torn edges.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope to see you back here next week – have a wonderful week!
