At regionals last year we were shown how easy 'watercolouring' can be. I see people demonstrate something and it is made to look so easy and then I do it and struggle, but what I loved was that this 'watercolouring' really was easy.
Now for this particular project I stuck to the super simple. I did not use Watercolour paper but began with Whisper White (this is actually tricky IF you use an aquapainter but here's a hint.... I didn't use it) LOL
I stamped my images with Staz On ink and let sit for a few minutes to dry.
Next I pulled out my Stampin' Write Markers and set out colouring. Rather than using two different colour markers, on most of these projects I used one colour and just layered over top of it to achieve a darker look in some areas. Now this is the simplest way to achieve different shades of colour on a project but I will create more projects where we will take colouring a step further still.
The best part about these three particular images is that they are from a set called Studio Sketches and the images include 'shading' already. This took the biggest challenge out of the colouring for me as I automatically knew where I had to add more colour.
On the jug image below, I wanted to add a bit more lighting effect and so I left a couple areas bare of colour. Talk about making a difference in the overall look. I LOVE it.
Now I can't wait to use these little watercolour masterpieces on some cards. :)
