When you see Easy Watercolor Painting do you think not you? If you are like me and you love the look of watercolor paintings but you can’t paint, then I have the technique for you. I will show you an easy way to watercolor using stamps and water-based markers.
In April of 2016 I came across a watercolor video, I was so intrigued by the artwork that I thought, I can do that, and so it began! I recently started this new blog (I used to be at www.thepassionatestamper.blogspot.com) and a YouTube channel where I have just started creating videos to show you how easy it is to watercolor without having any experience. Anyone can do it and I’ll show you how step-by-step.
All supplies listed at the end of this post. I began by stamping the chest using Sepia on Canson XL watercolor paper. I pulled the color out of the lines. I made a mask for the chest and stamped the cobblestone using Sepia.
I added vines using Olive Green around the chest. Once I softened the vines, I used the daisy bunch to add flowers in Brilliant Yellow and Violet. I also used the flower from the Spring Basket stamped in Persimmon.
I used the Prussion Blue on my watercolor palette to add color to the chest. I added the small grass to the cobblestone in Olive Green and stamped the small daisy from the new flower set using Prussian Blue and Olive Green.
I cut a background I did using Brushos to 4 x 5 1/4 and added craft foam to pop it up. I cut a stitched circle at the top and stamped the “Love You A Bunch” sentiment in the bottom right corner.
I attached the watercolor painting to the background so that it showed through the window and adhered the entire panel to a top folding white card.
Here is another project using the same chest of flowers. See how each one comes out different even though it was the exact same stamps and process? The background was done with stencils and ink.
