It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge. This week we're having a "Product Spotlight" challenge.
You're gonna love today's card! I saved it for sharing today, as it features the Watercolor Pencils. Earlier this year I did a presentation of Watercolor Pencils Techniques at a local Stamp Share for Leaders Meeting. One of the techniques I shared, I learned from fellow demonstrator, Tandra Boyer, Watercolor Pencils Ruffles!
See below for the step-by-step instructions and a great photo tutorial too!
Beautiful You Watercolor Pencil Ruffles Technique
- Use sticky note to mask off the "skirt" part of the stamp image. Ink stamp with Archival Basic Black ink. Remove sticky note. Stamp on 3-3/4" x 5" Shimmery White paper (or Watercolor Paper)
- With Melon Mambo Watercolor Pencil...color hat and bodice, then draw "scribbly" lines to create the skirt.
- With a wet Aqua Painter, blend skirt. With a drier Aqua Painter, blend hat and bodice.
- Optional, but cute...use Clear Wink of Stella to blend and add glimmer to skirt.
Above is a Watercolor Pencil Ruffles photo tutorial - great for saving to Pinterest!
This Watercolor Pencil technique is so much fun - you'll have to give it a try! It did take me a couple of tries to get the shaping of the skirt. But once I was happy with that, I was able to get several cards done rather quickly. These would be great for a special birthday or even a bridal shower, right?
