Want to feel like an artist?  Try this easy watercolor technique using your stamp pads, inks and an Aqua painter. I’ve already shared 2 different cards using the Waterfront stamp set and this technique, but today I had the idea to combine it with the High Tide stamp set.  There are stamps from both sets used on this card.

Watercoloring Video

Last week I posted a video showing how to do this watercoloring technique.  It shows how to make the “mountain scene” card, but this one is made the same way.  Just a few different colors and stamps.  Make sure you are using the Shimmer White card stock (or watercolor paper.)  You want to make sure the colors move around a little bit to give you the watercolor look.

A Few Important Tips

  • Make sure you use Shimmery White Cardstock or Watercolor Paper–I prefer the Shimmery White
  • Make sure each color is dry before stamping another color near it
