Video: Outline Watercolor + Giveaway
Hello. Today’s video shares a technique that I really enjoy – outline watercolor technique.

However, I found that with this watercolor tracing technique, I get great results and it’s so easy to do. Can’t beat that.
I stamped one of the floral images from a new Jane’s Doodles stamp set using light grey ink on watercolor cardstock. I next traced the stamp outline with the new Zig Clean Clean Color Real Brush Pens and added water with a Zig water brush to pull the color in. This creates a watercolor look. You can do this technique with other watercolor markers, but these are delicious. (And I will have a video with more on them soon.)
I added a glitter sticker from Heidi Swapp for the sentiment and mounted the piece on a peach note card that I stamped with a dot background from My Favorite Things.
Perfect for my mommy for Mother’s Day!
