Default Watercolor Technique(s)

There are different ways to watercolor your stamped image. Here is an easy way. This is one of my favorite techniques.

- Stamp image with archival ink on watercolor paper. (I used 100# texured watercolor paper from Meade.)
- Color image with dye-based markers. (You don't need to be careful. You can go beyond the lines.)
- Spritz with enough water to cause the ink to run.
- Use a heat tool to arrest ink movement and to start drying the paper.
- Iron the paper to flatten.
- Optional: you can add more color if desired. I didn't.
- Use as desired.

This ATC features my favorite flower stamp, Chi Blossom, from OnyxXpressions. I stamped the sentiment at the very end when it was totally dry.

Would anyone like to share another Watercoloring Technique?
