This technique gives the illusion of watercoloring using watercolor crayons.
Good quality watercolor paper (I used 140 lb cold press paper)
Watercolor crayons in light and dark shades of the same color
Mister or spray bottle with water
Solid thick line image stamp (the simpler the stamp the better for coloring) - I used a new AI set- Love Ya Lots
With the lightest shade crayon, color directly on the stamp making sure to cover completely.
Next, use the darker shade crayon and color where you would expect to see darker shades.
For this part of the stamp, I repeated the first step using the lighter shade.
Once again, I used the darker shade to darken some spots. I also shaded around the edge of the stem.
Spray the lightly about 6”-8” away from the stamp. Be careful not to make the stamp too wet. Your image will become mottled.
Stamp your image onto the watercolor paper.
Your image will look like it was watercolored and is ready to use.
Finish your card as desired.
