Layered Watercolor Pencil Dreamers

 

Have you seen the new stamps from Elizabeth Crafts Designs? I am so excited – they’re adorrrrrable! (check them all out HERE.) (after you watch the video.) (LOL)

Layered Watercolor Pencil Dreamers

Lots of crafters like *strong* color. Bold, bright, intense. That sometimes hampers us – we sacrifice some features of mediums that don’t provide that instant “pow.” Well if you’ve bought watercolor pencils (not Inktense ones) that you think are “weak” and haven’t used them – don’t fear! You can use layering to intensify color and increase contrast to do some fun shading. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

And of course….a fox. *big puffy heart love*

And the puppy…reminds me of another little baby….

heehee. I love Giallo’s baby pictures!

  7. Love this technique! I was with my grandkids yesterday evening, and looking at one of their story books… couldn’t figure out whether the artist had painted those cute dogs in watercolor, or if they were pencilled… now I see the light! It had to have been watercolor pencils, with the top layer left to add texture, instead of painted in. Gotta get brushes and pencils out and try this! This stamp set is awfully cute too, by the way – love the “dream bubbles”! Thanks for another great inspiration – and HAPPY SAINT PATRICK’S DAY!

    1. Awesome thing to look for! ❤
