Oh So Eclectic Bundle
Some of my favorite projects were created using Watercolor Pencils. Putting pencil to paper allows me to be in control of the intensity of the completed image. Adding color to a light or dark surface can also create unique results. The fun for me is in choosing the image that suits this style. Oh So Eclectic stamp set is at once very striking and easy to adapt into all sorts of designs. The matching framelits are also great and have several unique dies that are very cool! This bundle is currently 10% off only through March 31st… then the discount will go away.
Watercolor Pencils + Dark Paper
TO help the flowers really pop off the page, I first stamped the image in VersaMark and heat embossed with White embossing powder. This first step allowed the images to be seen clearly. With the package of watercolor pencils, I added a layer of white pencil on the entire flower before adding these colors: Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie & Real Red. Melting the pencils is optional, I used an Aqua Painter to melt one layer of pencil and went back over the areas to add more intense colors. The non-colored areas are stamped as tone on tone with Smoky Slate ink.
