ETA: A fun side note, I have a some cards being featured on Claudine Hellmuth’s blog today! I would love it if you left me some love over there. :))
I recently received the Grunge Dual Brush Pen Set from Tombow and finally got to play with them this weekend. These makers are water-based and perfect for doing a watercoloring technique. I’m not much of a colorer, so I thought it would be fun to do instead of just coloring in an image.
I started by picking out a silhouette image from Hero Arts and began by coloring the clear stamp with the markers. For the flowers and butterfly I used the lighter pink first them went back over them with the darker pink for added interest. When I was all done coloring, I light misted the entire stamp using a water bottle and stamped the image onto my card stock. This produces a watercolor effect which I absolutely love!
I built my card on top of patterned paper from Pebbles and added some rustic jute twine for texture. The sentiment is also from Hero Arts.
