Today, we are looking at card making ideas using the "faux watercoloring" stamping technique. The video below will demonstrate this stamping technique.
Those of you who have joined my Tuesdays Techniques & Tips receive a separate, unique video plus written instructions highlighting a special technique each week. For information on that, click on the right hand bar that says "Tuesdays Techniques & Tips".
Bordering on Romance is a great set for water coloring. I love the look of water coloring and this is a fun way of achieving that look just with markers.
On this card, the white oval was made with the Ovals Die and the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. It also works with the 2 1/2 in Circle Punch!
I used glossy white card stock which gives a different look than whisper white card stock although the results on both are beautiful. For each color, I used two different Stampin' Write Markers and that is what gives the "water color" look. I colored with the lighter marker first and then accented with the darker. You could add shading anywhere you want as well.
