Blurred Vision Watercoloring

by Beate Johns

Create a diffused watercolor look on solid or outline images, super quick and super easy.

Supplies

  • Stamps

  • Cardstock

  • Dye Ink

  • Aqua Painter or watercolor brush

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Stamp an image in dye ink.

  2. Step 2

    Go over the stamped image with an Aqua Painter or watercolor brush. The ink will run a bit to give a watercolored look.

  3. Step 3

    Repeat Step 1 and 2 if you want more than one image.

    Only stamp and blur one image at a time. The image will blur better if you go over it right after stamping.

  4. Step 4

    This technique works for solid and outline images alike.

  5. Step 5

    When blurring outline images, try pulling the ink from the stamped lines to the inside of the image to color it in.

  6. Step 6

    Finish your card.

I was trying to come up with something new and different for a card to send to a friend in Transylvania (with the Peace Corps). This technique has given me a wonderful idea.

Thanks so much.
