Watercolor stamping with Spectrum Aqua


I totally adore my Spectrum Aquas. There are so many pretty colors and I love how they blend. When I was doing my tutorial for Spectrum Noir this month I revisited an old technique that works with basically all kinds of water based markers but I never really tried it with my Aquas before starting to experiment with it for my tutorial. It worked amazingly well, as I expected :) Klick here to get to the tutorial, if you haven't tried it before I highly recommend playing around because it is very easy, fun and gives a very pretty result.

I started out with these pretty butterflies. I made them really colorful and made a CAS card out of the panel.

Then I reached for this pretty holly stamp and made a very quick Christmas card. Great for mass producing. And the embossed sentiment makes it look special even though it doesn't take many minutes to make after you have planned it out.

I also made this card using my Flights of Fancy stamps, I love how they turned out. I splattered some ink ovet it to make it a bit more interesting and added glitter on one side. Because glitter always makes everything prettier.

I hope you got some inspiration! Thank you for stopping by, see you soon again :)

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
