Watercoloring with Stampin' Up! watercolour pencils

water colouring card making supplies dragonfly garden stamp set
Another month has passed and so I'm pleased to welcome you to our Totally Techniques blog hop of international Stampin' Up! demonstrators.  We are sharing ideas for using the Stampin' Up! water colour pencils. 

I have gone for a very simple approach. I stamped the wild flower stamp from Dragonfly Garden stamp set in black Staz On ink.  I used the pencils to add some colour roughly to each part of the image.  

I then used one of my water painter brushes to move the colour around each part of the image to add light and shade by dragging the colour with the wet brush to where I wanted it.   I'm not the best at colouring in so this technique is very forgiving.  I stamped the mini dragonflies again with black Staz On and added some pencil colour, but this time to drag it across each part of the image I used the Wink of Stella brush so that the sparkly solution mixed with the colour to give the effect of iridescent wings. 

I also added a layer of Pool Party card matted under an embossed layer of vellum to create a frame.  To the right hand side I also added a Highland Heather torn layered edge.  I used a blending brush to add some Balmy Blue ink to tone it down a little and make it blend with the coloured image.  

The sentiment is from the same stamp set and is embossed in white with a simple twine bow.  

I'm sure you will find lots of inpso from the others in the team so do visit all of them. 

Keep safe and keep stamping
