When I first saw the Take Heart stamp set by Simon Says Stamp, I knew that I wanted to try the no-line watercolor stamping technique with it. It looked like it would lend itself to the technique well and I was not disappointed - it did!
First, I colored the stamp with a marker in a lighter shade than the one I planned to paint with in order to get my lines, then I began to paint! If you're not familiar with this technique, I posted a tutorial a while back in the Ellen Hutson CLASSroom, HERE, which you may find helpful.
A simple die cut greeting and bold colored paper add the perfect finishing touch!
Thanks for your visit!
