Stamps + Watercolor

MFT stamps is having a week of creative summer camp this week showcasing a variety of techniques.  In the spirit of ICADness (i.e. stretching those creative muscles) today I tried my hand at combining stamping and watercoloring.

I've had this stamp set for years and still really like it but I hardly ever pull it out.  Not being a watercolorist (is that a word?  ha ha!) the bigger spaces were pretty tricky for me, but it's all about learning and experimentation anyway.

I stamped the main image using Distress ink (Tumbled Glass) and then used Distress inks and a waterbrush to do all the watercoloring.  I found myself holding my breath a lot.  :)

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this panel now. I might put it on a card or maybe just stick it on my wall someplace.  Who knows?

Ciao for now...

  1. You could fool me...this beautiful panel looks like the work of a "watercolorist" to me! ;-)


I'm sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to hear what you think about this post. Have a spectacular day!
