Hi! Today I have a video showing how to create watercolor greetings…
I love all the handpainted and scripty (is that a word?) greetings I am seeing out there lately. Love them! But I am terrible at creating my own. So I cheated. (Remember – cheating is accepted, encouraged and helpful in crafting!)
This technique worked really well with the stamp set in the current Studio Calico Card Kit Add-On. (More on this below.) I just stamped the greetings with Studio Calico Blush Crush (after stamping off once) on watercolor paper and traced with watercolor. Woot! I look like a real artist!
I used a watercolor that I have had for years, but you can use anything you have… even inks mixed with water. Mine is the Hero Arts Watercolor wheel. I like it because there are a lot of colors, it is compact and the price is good. Works well for me!
As I mentioned, this stamp set is from one of the newest Studio Calico Card Kit add-ons. You can find more info HERE. This stamp set was a good one… so it looks like it has sold out already. Sorry! (I *highly* recommend their card kits. By subscribing, you get first dibs on great products like this.) However, here are some other stamp sets that would work with this technique: Mama Elephant Make a Wish, BasicGrey Life is Good and Hero Arts Fancy Basics.
Thanks for stopping by!
