Blurred Vision


This was the weekly technique from splitcoaststampers.com. Here is my attempt and the instructions on how to do it!

This is the EASIEST watercoloring technique ever! Everyone can do it. Simply stamp your image just like you always would, and then take your aquapainter and run it along the stamped edges. The ink will run a little, smoothing the color and blurring the lines. Very easy and very pretty! If you don't have an aquapainter, just use a regular small paint brush or even a wet Qtip.

I first stamped French Script in Creamy Caramel on Very Vanilla paper. I then ran my aqua painter over the entire paper, saturating it. Next, stamp the same stamp in Close to Cocoa over the paper while the paper is still wet. The water does all the work for you! Finally, I ran my Creamy Caramel stamp pad over the edges of the paper and...voila'!
