I made a few very simple cards tonight using Close to My Heart Stamps and some watercolor pencils. This was my first attempt at watercolor pencils and I am very happy with the results!
For the first card I used Archival Black ink pad with the Happy Camper stamp set. I used my watercolor pencils to color in the images and then a water brush to blend the color in so that it was soft and even.
For the second card I tried something new. I stamped the images that had houndstooth in them using Archival Black ink pad again. This time I colored each image in a different watercolor pencil to ‘colorize’ the image. Not sure the picture does this justice but the effect is pretty cool. I get a washed out look for the color. This could be done with other color stamp pad to have more of a tone on tone look (which I may just try tomorrow night!).
