Default MIX39: Watercolor-It

Challenge Title: Watercolor-It
Hostess: tiffguam (Tiffany Johnson)
VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE

Ready for a new Mix-Ability challenge?!! We hope you're having fun with these! Our goal is to make mixed media, easy, approachable and FUN! We want to convince you that no matter what your style is - you can DO it!

This week's challenge is to add watercolor to a stamped image. Make sure you use an archival ink or heat emboss your ink or you'll end up with a runny masterpiece (or mess...however you see it, lol)! Here are some ideas:

1. Use your ink pads and a blender pen or a waterbrush to add color to a stamped image.
2. Create a palette of Gelato washes for coloring!
3. Use your dusty old Watercolor Crayons and a waterbrush.
4. Get beautiful detailed coloring with Watercolor Pencils and blend with a waterbrush.
5. Use a blender pen or a wet brush to transfer color from Stamp Markers.
6. Try painting on mixed-media paper, watercolor paper, or heavyweight cardstock for the best results!

Remember to use the keyword MIX39 when uploading your creations to the gallery, come back and post a link, and let us "ooooooh" and "ahhhhhh" over your works of art!

Here are my samples:

I also have a video tutorial for you:


Thanks to everyone who created samples! Have you seen Jeanne's beautiful rose creation? Amazing!

Guess I didn't read carefully enough and forged ahead with a watercolored bg. I'll do better next time with reading! : )

Here is my Glossy Balloons. I water colored them with ink and water and added Glossy Effects. Thank you for the challenge. Got me out of my slump!

This isn't really much of a mixed medium card, but I did use watercolouring on all the zombies with water colour pencils and a water brush.

I'm not much of a Mixed Media person, but the HYCCT1326 challenge was mixed media, so I pulled out my watercolor crayons and Prismacolor pencils and did my best. Here's my card:

Haven't used my Twinkling H2Os for awhile so got them out. I couldn't decide whether to use my large or my small poinsettia stamp so did two cards:

This was a fun challenge for me. I am not very familiar with water color so it was nice to try my hand at using them..
All is watercolor except the sentiment and the stamp imprint....

This was a good challenge for me, since I seldom use watercolour technique. Thanks, Tiffany!
