Hello! I have a Newton's Know-how up on the Newton's Nook Designs Blog today. I thought I'd share it with you here today too! It features a fun watercoloring technique and one of my favorite new stamp sets, Flirty Flamingos:
I started with a kraft card base and splattered gray ink all over it. I added a piece of coral striped patterned paper from the Teresa Collins Designs Something Wonderful 6x6 pad to the card front. Next, I diecut a piece of watercolor paper into with a journaling card shaped die by Taylored Expressions. I stamped the flamingo and sentiment with Jet Black Staz On ink.
Now comes the fun part!
I pulled out my favorite blue, coral, and yellow ink pads along with a bit of water in a cup. I also
pulled out a bunch of q-tips! Yep, that's what makes the great dotted look! :)
I took turns dotting colors onto my image until it was all filled in. I let layers dry and then added a little more for depth. I've made a video to show the technique a little better- enjoy!
I hope you try out this fun technique for yourself! I love the dotted look and can't wait to try it again soon!
