A Fun Watercolor Technique


Hi friends, how are you today?

Here is a tag I created for our February Stamp of the Month Club members, using the Blooms and Wishes stamp set, watercolor paper and an aqua painter.


I just love this easy watercolor technique. Simply stamp your image and while the ink is still wet, use your aqua painter to pull the color out. After it has dried completely, you can add the flower centers and a sentiment. Another tip is to let each color dry completely before stamping the next color, otherwise the two colors will run together.

Have you had a chance to try this technique? Leave us a comment and let us know how you liked it. It’s so much fun to hear form you- you’re the reason I love to share!

Happy stampin’ friend!

  1. GREAT tip. I will be trying it. What colors did you use on the flowers and how did you make the tag that is Kraft cardstock if that is the right color? Thanks

    • I’m so happy to hear that- thank you Jeannine! The flowers are done in Marina Mist and Watermelon Wonder with Early Espresso centers. The tag is, indeed Kraft yardstick and made with the Lots of Labels die. Let me know if you have any other questions- I love to help!

  2. II have tried this! It’s so easy and fun. Unlike you, I didn’t wait for my ink and water to dry. But, only once! Isn’t it great to be able to still use our older dies and stamp sets? That’s what I love about SU! TFS
