Watercolour Wonder Tutorial

Hello Everybody!

I've had a lot of interest in the Watercolour Wonder Crayons recently. These are superb. They are similar to watercolour pencils but better and more versatile. Here's a quick tutorial of a technique that is really effective.

First of all use your WW Crayons to colour your stamp on the back, as shown. I've used the large flower stamp from Live Your Dream and used Barely Banana, Bashful Blue and Old Olive crayons.

Next spritz the back of your stamp with a mister. Bit like Sir Tim does! ;O) Don't soak it, just a light mist over the whole thing.

Stamp as normal. It's best to use watercolour paper for this, it gives a better impression. There you go - a nice "watercolour" effect image!

The card I've made uses Old Olive and Bashful Blue cardstock, Bashful Blue Designer Series paper, Bashful Blue tafetta ribbon and the tab is made using Totally Tabs stamp set, Yummy stamp set (this is a Sale-a-Bration set) all embossed in white on Old Olive and cut out using the tab punch.
Hope you like this. TFL! :O)
