Now onto my project...
To achieve the hand watercolored look I started by stamping the image a few times with Distress Ink: Weathered Wood onto Arches Hot Press Watercolor Cardstock. I then used other Distress Inks smooshed onto my glass mat and picked up using my water brush. Make sure you let each area dry before painting a section next to it or else you'll end up with a muddy smooshed looking image. When everything was dry I added a few flicks of a darker blue ink for a more artsy feel, and for an imitation of raindrops. Finally, I stamped my sentiment from the Altenew Stamp Set Be Strong.
What I love about this technique is that the Weathered Wood Distress Ink gave me distinct lines to follow, and took all of the guess work out of my painting. I also didn't get super creative in my color choices as I more or less looked at the cover of the stamp set for my inspiration.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!
