Hello and I hope you are having a nice weekend! Today I had a fun time doing the Vintage Watercolor look a la Heather Telford's technique. You can find her tutorial here on her blog and look further, because this past week she shared a lot more projects along the same lines.
This technique was a lot easier than I thought it would be by just sortof trying some of the things I saw in the video. I think stamp selection makes it easier. I used Distress Ink in Tea Dye to stamp with and lots of sponging, and various brown and black water-based markers to accent (I used more than one only because I found several of mine had dried up.). I also used one pink watercolor pencil.
All of the stamped lines were just brushed out with water using a waterbrush and then pink color was added where I wanted it. The other colors came from the brown and black markers. When you add water, the colors just separate out. If you want to learn a little science, here is a link about paper chromatography. I used to teach this to kids as part of a science program.
