Challenge: Watercolor Wednesday---No Line Watercolor

Gallery for No Line Watercolor on Tutorial at SplitcoaststampersKeyword: WCW004

Hello Crafters! This week our challenge is NO LINE WATERCOLOR.

I love the handpainted look it gives.

I have a SCS tutorial No Line Watercolor on Tutorial at Splitcoaststampersfor this technique. If it doesn't work,  do a search for it and skip down a few spaces to find it. Or, here are some instructions:

Use a light ink for stamping your image so the color you are painting with will take on that color. I used Distress Ink Antique Linen.

If you have Ink on 3 Fadeout no line coloring ink, you could use it. I haven't tried it yet. Just be sure to use something light. I have tried stamping the image with the color/s I am using for the image but mine didn't turn out so great. It's fine if that is your choice.

Choose your palette and lighten your colors with water. I like to build layers by letting them dry or almost between layers and adding more.

Use a clean, wet brush and blend the dark and light colors. For shading, you don't need water or very little.

I am using a hot press watercolor paper. Cold press is more absorbent and not as smooth meaning it takes in the paint quicker. Hot press leaves a bit more time to move the pigment around. Either paper is fine.

We hope you are having fun and so glad for all joining us each week.
