Last week, I shared a bright springtime card I created with this Clematis stamp that was colored with Spectrum Noir ColourBlend Pencils. After I finished working on that pencil piece, I decided to go back and stamp the image onto watercolor paper in Versafine Vintage Sepia ink and colored it with Spectrum Aqua markers as well.
I ended up preferring the pencil version for a card, but thought the watercolor version would look great as simple framed art.
After shading the image with my markers (listed below) and a waterbrush in a similar manner to my pencil version, I applied a thick line of tan ink around the entire border and drug the color out loosely with water. Then, I just added a nice embossed double-frame border with a stylus and my scoreboard to finish off the piece a bit more.
I love how different coloring mediums can really add versatility to my “same-old stamps”. Have you ever gone back try an image in a different medium?
