Welcome to the August Creative Challenge with My Favorite Things. This month, our focus is on watercolor, and the team is on hand to show you ways to achieve the look with stamps, stencils, and inks.
I've used a watercolor technic using MFT dye inks (Razzle Berry, Red Hot & Orange Fizz) that you can see HERE. Instead of applying the misted dye inks directly to watercolor paper, I applied the misted inks that I pressed into my craft mat to a background stamp first and then onto paper. For a cleaner look, I stamped off once and then onto my watercolor paper.
Typewriter Text Background stamp, a little blurred but still legible. And those sweet frames from Geek is Chic Glasses layered perfectly, don't you think?
Red Delicious Die-namics from the same piece of watercolor stamped paper, don't want to be wasteful!
High-Rise Lowercase letters to pull in some of that yummy Razzle Berry color and then topped off my apple with a fun embossing paste leaf that I created by making a 'stencil' with the leaf die from Red Delicious and coloring my paste with Blu Raspberry reinker.
