This technique will give a unique effect every time because of the placement and amount of coloring (density) and the amount of water spritzed on and how long it's allowed to stay there... all the way until it dries or dabbed off with a paper towel. I chose 4 complimenting color pencils and colored the entire surface of my water color paper. I then spritzed it with water, as lightly as possible and watched it bleed a little, then dabbed with a paper towel. I wanted to not let the colors run into each other too much. When this paper was dry, I stamped the dragonflies and sentiments on...It's really a pretty card and makes you feel like you actually made your own paper!
I hope you will give some of these techniques a try and purchase your own set of watercolor pencils for your coloring fun and imagination.
That's it for this week! I'll be back next week and the subject will be LOVE... i.e. Valentines!
Have a great weekend!
