Lydia’s Crafty Corner – Faux Watercolor using Layered Stamps

by Lydia Evans

Hello, everyone!

Lydia here with you today with another Lydia's Crafty Corner Video. In this week's video, I will be sharing how I get the look of real watercolor using layering stamps.

Altenew Painted Rose Lydia Evans 1I started with a piece of watercolor cardstock and adhered this down to my work surface using a little glue tape; this helped to stop the cardstock wrapping when it was drying. I then stamped the first layer of the rose from Painted Rose Stamp Set using second generation Pink Diamond Ink. I covered the stamped layer with clean, clear water and then dropped in Pink Diamond and Lavender Fields Inks. Once happy with the amount of color, I left this layer to dry.

Again, I covered the just stamped layer with clean, clear water and dropped in Pinkalicious and Deep Iris Inks. Then, I left this layer to dry. Once dry, I stamped the third layer of the rose in second generation Rubellite Ink. Like before, I covered this layer using clean, clear water and dropped Rubellite and Midnight Violet Inks into the wet image.

Afterward, I added in the leaves using second generation Parrot Ink, covered these stamped images using clean, clear water, and dropped in Parrot, Volcano Lake, and Olive Inks. To add to the watercolor look, I added splatters using Parrot and Rubellite Inks. Finally, I left the piece to dry.

For a step-by-step on how this card came together please check out the video below or on our YouTube Channel:

Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you again soon!
