The image above was made by coloring the Big Poppies Stamp with Peerless Watercolors. Instead of coloring with small strokes, it was colored with large swatches of color.
First, stamp the image on watercolor paper with a permanent ink (i.e. StazON), and spray the pap
er with water.
Next, pick up some color
from a dry Peerless Watercolor sheet with an aqua painter. Apply the color in to the wet paper, allowing the color to spread and move.
Clean off the brush on a paper towel.
up a different color with the brush and spread it around the first color. Apply more color to other areas of the stamp and finish as desired.
As a side note, I could not find an appropriate color of paper in my stash for the background to set off the image the way I wanted. I did have the perfect color of Dylusions Spray, though, so I added that to a piece of watercolor and dried it. I am in love with how it turned out!
Here are some additional flower "eye candy":
This sample uses the Cottage Rose stamp from the Palettini line colored with Copic markers.
The background paper, in orange, was made by repeatedly stamping the rose with Grey StazOn ink .
was colored with Gelatos. I simply applied a damp water brush to the top of each Gelatos and painted each color, adding and blending them as I would have with any paint.
This example was made by coloring the
Vintage Daisy Collage
with Peerless Watercolors. Don't you love the intensity of the Peerless colors?
Finally, inks and masks were used to create a collage effect. A full tutorial for how this was made is on my blog:
