Easy Ink & Wash Hack
Easily achieve the look of watercolor ink and wash with this simple stamping hack. Although I can sketch some florals, this eucalyptus jar arrangement is outside my current skill level.
But, no worries a bit of watercolor stamping and fine liner detail does the trick. Here I used the brand new 01 Fine Liner to sketch in the details of the eucalyptus jar arrangement after watercoloring.
Now you might ask, why sketch it vs. stamping it in black ink? Well it gives you a completely different look and stretches the use of your stamps. Next time, I’ll add ink shading with cross hatching to further the pen sketched look.
I’d love to see your makes with this watercolor ink and wash technique. Tag me @notableink.
Striped Circle Stamp Set
As you can see, Altenew Striped Circle Stamp Set lends itself to bold graphic card designs. Here I paired it with Sea Shore Crisp Dye Ink #swinking and water splatter.
This card is included in the video. Do check it out for all the details to create this quick and easy card.
Here are THREE ways to get a FREEBIE to kickstart your creativity!
Sparkle Stamp Set
Altenew Sparkle Stamp Set offers a simple outline image along with hatched layers. This style of pen stroke shading, leaving white highlights, is called sparkle in Zentangle drawing.
For a completely different look, try stamping the layers with black and gray for a pen sketched look.
