Using watercolor pencils and a waterbrush is the absolute easiest way to color detailed stamped images. Adding shading and highlights using this technique has never been easier! I like to use a fine tip waterbrush pen and I dip it in water rather than filling it up with water.  So really you could use a fine tip paintbrush instead! Here is the card I created. I am SERIOUSLY in love with this stamp set from Heartfelt Creations. Cottages are super trendy right now in the crafting world and this is one of my favourite designs. To create this card… Using the Heartfelt Creations Countryside Cottage stamp, stamp onto a piece of watercolor paper. I used Ranger Archival ink so that the ink doesn’t run when I add water. Stamp the image using a stamping platform.  Do not remove the stamp from the platform as you will re-stamp the image once…

What do you get when you mix Art Impressions Rubber Stamps with Simple Stories?!?!? A charming little card that makes you feel like spring! To create the card I cut a card front from a piece of pink striped patterned paper from the Simple Stories Bunnies & Bloom collection. I cut the same size card front from Ranger Simon Hurley Create Stark White cardstock. Using a Sizzix Framelits circle die, I cut out a circle window in the upper portion of both the card fronts – in the exact same spot. Using Glue Dots Adhesives Gluetape I adhered the two-card fronts together. This process made the pink stripe paper stronger so I could pop it up later. Next, cut out a piece of Prima Marketing white watercolor paper. Pop it into your Tonic Studios  Tim Holtz Stamping Platform. Securing it into place. Stamp the Art Impressions floral stamp onto the…

Hello everyone, Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. I’ve been playing a lot with Brea Reese watercolor inks. They are very bright and beautifully transparent. The glitter inks are just yummy. They are perfect for making the galaxy paintings that you see all over Instagram and Pinterest. Brea Reese watercolor inks are dye-based ink and they dry quickly. They are very concentrated…a little goes a long way. If you put them in a paint pallet they will dry in the pallet and when you come back later with a wet brush you can re-activate them. To make this card download a mermaid tail and turned it into a stencil. You could use any large silhouette type shape with this technique. Large flowers work well too. To begin, trace the tail onto watercolor paper. Use the rough side of 140 Lb, cold pressed watercolor paper. Paint the inside of…
