This is the EASIEST watercoloring technique ever! Everyone can do it.
Simply stamp your image just like you always would, and then take your aquapainter and run it along the stamped edges. The ink will run a little, smoothing the color and blurring the lines. Very easy and very pretty! If you don't have an aquapainter, just use a regular small paint brush or even a wet Qtip.
My samples: Seaside Girl you can see where I used the aquapainter on the water Watercolor Garden the effect is more subtle here...you can see it more on the flower than the leaves and stem, although the effect is more evident in real life.
I have a busy morning tomorrow, so I am posting Sunday night. If you play tonight, please wait to upload your card until Monday. Our gallery moderators are awesome and deserve a day off! If you are a Fan Club member, then you may upload today (just one of the perks of becoming a member. )
Please put TLC105 in the keyword section when you upload. If you have an additional keywords, please seperate each word with the comma so the gallery search feature works properly.
Have fun, my friends!
You are braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem,

Thanks for this marvelous challenge, Beth! I did something (watercoloring my images) I didn't think I would be able to do. I'm actually pleased with the results!
I used pigment inks and was suprised how well they worked.
