Watercoloring with Katherine

Hello friends,

Today we are bringing you a fun watercolor project by design team member Katherine!

Katherine used the exclusive stamps and dies from the Dream Big Online Class. This class/kit is available as a recorded event. Read all about it HERE

Here's a great shot of the finished project!

Katherine used the mini ink pads to lay down some in on a craft mat. You can also use plastic from packaging, wax paper, parchment paper, or clear acetate sheets are our favorite!

When watercoloring make sure you are using the Black Archival Ink Pad. This is a pigment ink and will not run when water is added like the dye ink will.

Pick up the ink using TSOL water brushes and color in the image.

We like to suggest to do a light color wash of the area and then come back with same color and add around the edges to darken in some areas. If you let the image dry and then add more water color  you'll get a different effect, so try that too.

Add some simple embellishments and place on a card base to finish off the project. Coloring is super relaxing and we hope you give it a try!

Go grab some supplies and get creative! Post your projects and tag us so we can see what you made!
