I love stamps that will share all the beautiful properties that watercolor can do. This stamped image for a card was perfect for watercolor!
|one of my favorite ways to play with watercolor!|
I have a good friend that loves to color with Copic Markers, Chris over at Purple Lake Stamps and I got together and thought we would share our completely different styles with you! She is coloring this stamp with Copics and will explain why she loves Copic Markers, on the flip side, I am sharing why I love watercolor!
Go to Chris's blog to see why she loves Copic Markers and a video tutorial that will show you how she colored the Stamp with Copics. One Stamp, two different styles.
So I would love to know, do you color with both? I have used both, I am drawn to watercolor for all the amazing effects you can achieve with it.
Do you love watercolor for the same reason?
Why do you like Copics? (I am sure I am missing something about why Copics are so amazing. I am just not buying it.)
|I love this class, Highly recommended!|
On another thought, I love using Mixed Media paper and Archival ink to stamp images for card panels. So if you are new to watercolor cards, get a good pad of Mixed Media paper and some Archival ink and you will be set!
