Tag it Tuesday – Faux Watercolor

tag image

This week for Tag it Tuesday we are exploring a faux watercolor technique. If you don’t know how to watercolor or don’t feel confident in your ability, this technique will provide the look of a painted image.


Stamping your image and then using a water brush to move the ink around simulates the look of a watercolored image. I find this technique playful and relaxing without the stress of painting from scratch.
