Today I'm sharing with you more of my mucking around with Distress Markers! This time, I wanted to watercolour an image stamped with Archival ink on Watercolor paper.
I've used one of the new Girlfriends stamps by Art Impressions, which I absolutely love, and paired it with Konnichiwa papers from Basic Grey, which gave me a bright, cheery colour palette to work with! I've just used some cheap watercolor paper here, so I think I'll experiment with other papers to see what I like...
There were four girlfriends in this stamp, but the one I started with looked pretty awful LOL so I trimmed her out of there! My experiment included some direct colouring for darker colours, but mostly I scribbled on my craft sheet and used it as a palette with my water brush. Combining the two gave me more variation in colour intensity, which I liked. I'm not calling this a work of art, but it's usable, and I think like most things I'll get better with practice! I had quite a mix of colours on my craft mat when I was done... check back tomorrow and see what I did with it ;)
