Stamp TV ~ Friday Funday Watercolor Marker Tutorial!

Welcome to the Friday Funday Tutorial this week for Gina K Designs & the Stamp TV Kit Addicts Group!  Today I'm not only sharing a fun watercolor background technique, but also a great way to get more mileage out of your Christmas stamps.    I'm using the Home for the Holidays Stamp TV Kit that comes with this awesome Music Background stamp and the sweet little fairy that is part of the Christmas Magic stamps and dies.  Rather than make a Christmas card, I decided to switch up the sentiment and make it a birthday card while still using the cardstock colors that came with the Stamp TV Kit ~ Turquoise Sea & Jelly Bean Green.

Step 1: Stamp & heat emboss the Music Background Stamp on watercolor cardstock with white ink and white embossing powder.

Step 2: Select a watercolor palette to work with.  I selected several colors of my Spectrum Aqua markers ~ Bud Green, Aquamarine, Kingfisher, Peacock Blue, and Navy.  I added ink from the marker to my watercolor tray.

Step 3: Using a waterbrush, I added a drop of water to each color so it was nice and wet and began adding color to the music background. {sorry about the lighting on the following pictures... didn't notice it until after the card was done.}

Step 4: Keep adding color to the background until you have the desired look.  Then let it air dry, or use a heat gun to speed up the process.

Here's a close up!

Come play along on the Friday Funday Challenge in the Stamp TV Kit Addicts Group!

Have a great weekend!!

Your winter scene is beautiful, but a little hard for me, to try right now. I will save it and learn your technique later. Thank you for sharing your video.
