DT Tips: Achieving a Watercolored Look with Stamped Images...

Welcome! I've had some questions on this previous post of mine on how I blended the bird to get the watercolor look, so I created a video for you today with a new card and the technique of stamping images and blending them to make them look watercolored. I hope you enjoy watching it, and please let me know if you have any questions!




Here is the video tutorial, and I apologize that the video is so small! I can't seem to figure out how to make it bigger on my blog. Please click HERE to watch it at over at Papertrey Ink's YouTube channel! Thanks!

The stamps used on this card are The Sweet LifeSpring Woods stamps and dies (bird and branch) and Bold Blossoms (sentiment). Have a creative day!

Awesome tutorial, Danielle, and love your card and technique. Now I want The Sweet Life and Spring Woods even more. I'll see what's in my stash that I can use instead. Great job!

Love the colors in this card. I looked on the shopping site and could not find most of the colors, are they still available and where can i find a complete list of the inks available. thanks in advance for the help.

This is a beautiful card, Danielle. I recently tried this technique with Brushed Blooms and loved the look. It gives a watercolor feel but with more definition than spraying the inked stamp with water. I would never have thought to try this with The Sweet Life roses, but now I know I must. Thank you for the video. I appreciate your explanations throughout the process.
