How to Watercolor




If you haven’t tried water-coloring before, here are a few easy tips for you to follow. Water-coloring doesn’t have to be exact; that’s the beauty of it. Let the color flow where it will, creating a gradation of color that looks natural. You don’t want the color so opaque that the paper doesn’t show through a bit. Use the paper as you lightest point.


Using Pastels:

 Dip the tip of a blender pen on to the corner of a Stampin’ Pastel, then apply color to the stamped image.


Using Watercolor Wonder Crayons:


 Brush the tip of a blender pen, Aqua Painter, or wet watercolor brush directly on the tip of a Watercolor Wonder Crayon, then apply color to the stamped image. 


Using Watercolor Wonder Crayons & Watercolor Pencils:


  Color a section of the stamped image with a Watercolor Wonder Crayon or Watercolor Pencil. Then use a Blender Pen, Aqua Painter, or wet watercolor brush to blend color as desired.

Using a Classic Stampin’ Pad:


Press the closed lid of a Classic Stampin’ Pad down against the inked pad, then open the lid. Use a Blender Pen, Aqua Painter or damp watercolor brush to lift the ink from the small pool of color in the lid and apply to stamped image.
