Faux Hand-Painting

Welcome back,

I wanted to share a project with you that I created this morning. Its called Faux Hand-Painting. Its my absolute new and favoritest technique ( know favoritest ins’t a word)

I learned this technique from the online card class Watercolor for Card Makers. By far the best online card class yet. Well… they are all amazing! But I’m really, really REALLY enjoying this one!

I used a really light ink to stamp out my images and then using my distress ink markers I slowly started to paint in image in, adding a little bit of shading here and there. I used the Lawn Fawn stamp set Friendship Grows.

The background is created with a Hero Arts background stamp. I put three different colors of distress inks on the background and then heavily sprayed it with water. I laid my watercolor paper on top of it, and ta-da the most amazing background EVER!

The sentiments is from a WPlus9 stamp set and heat embossed with Liquid Platinum embossing powder. LOVE!

thanks for dropping by!
