Supplies: Watercolor paper, StazOn Ink, Tombow Markers, Water Brush, Assorted Cardstock & Buttons
The first thing you’re going to do is to stamp the image with StazOn ink. It needs to be StazOn when you’re working with water as the other inks will blend in with the other colors and you’ll lose your image. Scribble 2 different colors of Tombow markers onto the image leaving a good amount of white space.
use your aqua brush to swoosh the colors together. If you want a darker color effect, then don’t use too much water. If you’d like to add accent to the image, then color in a line at the edge of the image, and pull the color into the center making sure not to pull too much. You can smooth out the line by lightly drawing out the color from the edges with your watercolor brush. (aquabrush)
Here we’ve inked the edges of the cardstock with the “direct to paper” technique. It’s just a matter of using the inkpad directly to the paper instead of a dauber or sponge. Adhere all your pieces to your cardstock and add your buttons to accent.
