DT Thursday - Stamping with Watercolor Powders

Hi, and welcome to Impression Obsession's Design Thursday! It's my turn to host and I have a technique video for you - I shared this technique over on Splitcoast yesterday, so if you missed it you can check out that tutorial here.

The technique is really great for stamps with large solid areas like this one, and a stamp with a mostly black index like this might be a little intimidating... am I right?

Here's a video showing how I created this card using a stamp positioner, a little water, and some watercolor powders. I have another post HERE featuring this same stamp with another idea for inking.

It's a fun technique that I hope you'll try! I used a little diluted ink and a waterbrush to shade the hills and give the crosses some shadows - you can see that more clearly below.

Stamps I used: Cross Sunrise and People in Need
Other products: MISTI stamp positioner, Brusho crystal colours, Nuance powdered dye, Zig Clean Color markers

Thanks for visiting me today!
Thanks for stopping by!
