Watercoloring Tips for Stamped Images

Hey everyone… Tam here. Of all the ways to add color to stamped images, watercolors are my very favorite. I’ve been doing it so long that I sometimes forget to explain what I am doing so let me know if you have any questions about my video or this tutorial!

Here’s a quick summary:

  1. Stamp using waterproof ink on watercolor paper.
    Sunny-flower-10-sec-in
  2. Wet a section of the stamped image with clear water. The amount of water you need depends on the type of watercolor paper you are using. You may need to experiment a little to figure out how wet to make your watercolor paper before adding color.
    Sunny-flower-23-sec-in
  3. Add a light wash of color. Don’t completely color the entire stamped image. Let some white show through to create highlights in the stamped image.
    Sunny-flower-58-sec-in
  4. Let each color washed area dry completely before coloring any adjacent areas of your project. If you don’t let an area dry completely, your colors will probably bleed together.
    Sunny-flower-1m-45-sec-in
  5. Once your project is completely dry, go back and rewet an area where you want to add shadows. Often the dots or lines of the stamped image are a good place to add color to create the shadows and add visual interest.
    Sunny-flower-3m-31-sec-in
  6. Coloring is supposed to be relaxing and fun. So play with your stamped images. Try unusual color combinations. For example, Bev color-washed the leaves with yellow and used green to add the shadows. Also instead of sticking with a traditional yellow sunflower, why not make your flower be turquoise, purple or pink?
    Sunny-flower-5m-25-sec-in
  7. Die cut out your stamped image or fussy cut it. Add some sequins or highlight an area with glossy accents. Add a sentiment to finish your project.

We’d love to see what you make using these watercolor techniques. Or show use how you colored the Sunny Flower stamps and dies using markers, colored pencils or your favorite coloring mediums. Use #TechniqueTuesday so we can find your project and leave some love for it!

Learn How to Paint Stamped Images with Distress Inks

Hi, friends!

Like to add color to your stamped images? We've got something for you today! 

Flower stamps from Technique Tuesday | TechniqueTuesday.comJulie has put together another coloring technique video. In this video, she will show you how to paint with Distress Inks. This technique is so much fun. All you need is a few Distress Ink pads, a stamping block, a water pen and an image stamped with waterproof ink.

Julie uses the Happy Hydrangea stamp set and dies in the video, but this technique works wonderfully with many of the flower stamps in the Greenhouse Society collection. Not a fan of flowers? You could even use this technique to color in the many critters from the Animal House collection of stamps and dies. 

See the Video

We hope you are inspired by Julie's video to give her technique a try and to make a card (or scrapbook page). If you do, please share your project with us! Leave a link to it comments or post it on Facebook or Instagram. Be sure to use the #TechniqueTuesday hashtag.
