I'm using another Stamps Happen image to highlight the in-direct technique with Tombows Dual Brush Pens. For this card I used a white outline for a different look. I really like it with glasses and the dark background. I used the picture on the wooden stamp for a color guide.
- Inked up image with watermark ink pad and stamped onto watercolor paper, sprinkled embossing power and heat set.
- I scribbled markers onto plastic pallet. Used the water brush to spread water inside an embossed, then picked up color with water brush and spread color. I use a combination of dabbing and spreading color. I mixed different colors and just had fun with it.
- I skipped over an embossed area so I would not be coloring right next to a wet area and just continued dabbing and spreading. Repeated until I colored all the glasses.
- For the background, I laid down one coat, let it dry, then added a second coat. I wanted a lot of contrast. I found the wide tip water brush to be more effective for larger areas, and for getting a clean edge around the glasses and inside the boarder.
- After it dried, I used a die cut to trim it. Click here for a tip on getting your die cut where you want it around your image.
- assembled layers and adhered the dew drops.
