Watercolor with Markers
Today I am pleased to participate in Kelly Kent’s Stamping Friends Blog Hop. We are all celebrating Kelly’s milestone 5 year anniversary as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. Kelly is an inspiration to so many people and she works very hard! In the spirit of Kelly’s style, I have created three cards to watercolor with markers with color options that will suit different taste and styles. I admire Kelly’s ability to use one product and show crafters several options at once time.
Scroll down for the list of blogs featured in this hop. I am thankful to be included in this talented group of crafters and hope you like all of the projects offered. Be sure to visit as many as you can for more great ideas!

Watercolor with Markers
Watercolor with markers isn’t a cheat at all. Choose a few markers to work with, apply the color directly to the rubber stamp and place the image onto the smooth side of watercolor paper. An aquapainter, or waterbrush, will spread the ink across the watercolor paper and give a more natural look, versus the original stamped image.
Roses come in so many colors that any shade of ink can look like the product of nature. The yellow and red roses were created using only one marker color. The intensity of color on the stamp still gave a natural look to the finished image. The third rose is where I worked to achieve a specific variety of rose. My favorite rose is the Peace rose because it holds three colors which change with the amount of exposure to the sun. Placing pink around the petal edge, orange up nest to the pink and yellow down inside the flower gave me a rose with a more natural appearance.
There were no special techniques used here, you can achieve the same results with success! Watch the video demonstration for more details and tips.
