Hello everyone! It’s Kelly Klapstein here today with an easy watercolour technique you can use on a card or other crafty project.
First, I inked up my Magenta stamp with Clearsnap Colorbox white pigment ink, and stamped and heat embossed onto white Superstock. I wanted a white outline background to colour in. Magenta rubber stamps have gorgeous, intricate details that show up perfectly when stamped!
To create a watercolour effect, I took out my set of Chameleon Pens.
These alcohol ink pens are amazing! You have all shades or tones of colour in a single pen. So for the yellow petals, I coloured in gradations of yellow because the Chameleon pen allows you to add toner to the pen nib with a couple of easy steps. There’s a LOT of information on their website, so click HERE to watch videos and learn more about how the pens work.
For the card base, I used a Sizzix embossing folder and Big Shot to emboss a piece of Superstock. The Superstock is heavy weight and embossed beautifully. This Superstock is also perfect for stamping and colouring. You can shop for it at the Canadian Scrapbooker website by clicking HERE. It is only sold online, or at our Carnivals in September.
