Here are two more ways to use the Watercolor Wonder Crayons. This first card front was stamped using StazOn Jet Black ink (#101406) onto a piece of Watercolor Paper (#122959) cut to 3.75 inches by 5 inches. The stamp set is Secret Garden (clear mount #129144) from the Spring Catalog. After stamping the flowers then use your Aqua Painter brush and the Watercolor Crayons to paint the flowers and the background. Let it dry in between applications of color. I added more color to the yellow/orange lily. As you know, watercolors will run and go outside the lines – that gives it a softer look. Mine had definitely bled outside the lines. For the leaves, I used Certainly Celery ink pad (#126958) to stamp the leaves since it is a solid image stamp.
The next step for this water colored image is to mat it onto a coordinating piece of card stock and the add it to the card base. It would be very pretty to add a ribbon to the card too.
This next item was an experiment… I took another piece of Watercolor Paper (3.75″ by 5″) and applied the Watercolor Crayon directly to the dry paper. Then I took the Aqua Painter brush, squeezed some water into the brush and smeared the colors around. It came out rather dark. I then used the Hydrangea image from The Best of 25 Years – Best of Flowers stamp set (clear mount #133342). This is the March – Best of 25 Years stamp set. The verse is from the Feel Goods stamp set (clear mount #129684). Again, I used the StazOn Jet Black ink pad. Mat it and mount it on a card stock base – embellish with ribbon, Baker’s Twine, jewels or brads as an extra touch.
