November Watercolor Technique

I was so happy to get some quality crafting time in the other day!  I was able to get caught up on challenges, projects and holiday card making.

Over at Club Scrap the November Technique challenge was to use watercolors in our artwork. 
It's been awhile for me, so I had to blow off the dust of my watercolor crayon set from a past retreat. 


 I just happened to find a pack of watercolor paper at my local thrift store for $.50! Score!

I've been inspired by the fall foliage and the glorious colors.  So I thought I'd try to recreate that in my watercolors.  I also experimented with different inks to stamp the image.  Here I used the Earth hybrid ink by Club Scrap and the colors all blended beautifully.  I was very happy with the finished image. The new Moroccan Spice Greetings to Go colors were a perfect background.

Club Scrap Aspen and Retreat 2002 stamps. RubberNecker border stamps. 


This second image is the exact same stamp and exact same watercolors on the exact same paper but with black India ink by Club Scrap. What a huge difference with a very stark image with waaaaay different color results.

Please join us in experimenting with your watercolors and add your link the Club Scrap linky party.

  1. Beautiful! I have one sheet of Autumn Splendor, but not sure it's this one. I don't think I have these leaves, but they are gorgeous!
