Easy Color Wash Technique

Posted by on May 24, 2013 in masculine, video, Water coloring | 2 comments

Check out my latest video demonstrating a super quick technique called “color wash” using the “Lovely as a Tree” stamp set:

Anyone else THRILLED that this stamp set did not retire?!  I made a bunch of these cards today and they were so much fun and very easy 🙂

I stamped the “Lovely as a Tree” image in Black Stazon on Watercolor Paper, used the Aquapainter to quickly swipe the ink back and forth across the stamped image.  The Watercolor Paper is cut to 3″ x 4 1/2″ so you can get four pieces from one sheet of the Watercolor Paper.  This was then layered to Basic Black (3 1/8″ x 4 5/8″) and then layered to Bashful Blue or Wild Wasabi cardstock (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″).

Do you like the Bashful Blue or Wild Wasabi background better?

  1. Hm. The blue background gives the card a calm, serene look. I’d use it for a “thinking of you” type card. The green background gives it a strong, masculine feel. I’d use it for a Father’s Day or guy’s birthday card. I like them both!
