Faux freehand watercolor with Art Impressions stamps

Hello! Today I have a couple of tags to share with you using Art Impressions Watercolor Series Stamps. I've been trying to learn watercoloring for a while now and I still can't paint anything decent! :) That's why I love how easy these stamps make it! It looks like you painted something yourself when you actually stamped it! ;)

¡Hola! Hoy tengo un par de etiquetas para enseñaros en las que he usado sellos de Art Impressions (serie de acuarelas). Hace tiempo que estoy intentando aprender a pintar con acuarelas y ¡todavía no puedo hacer nada medio decente! :) Por eso me encantan lo fácil que es con estos sellos. Parece que lo has pintado tú pero en realidad ¡lo has estampado! ;)

To stamp all the images and create these scenes I used Distress Inks and Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, but you can use any watercolor marker or ink. The idea is that it needs to react with water in order to achieve the freehand watercolor look we are looking for. You can watch the whole process in the video below or at my Youtube channel

Para estampar todas las imágenes y crear estas dos escenas he usado tintas Distress y rotuladores Zig Clean Color Real Brush, pero se puede usar cualquier tinta o rotulador acuarelable. La idea es que reaccione con el agua para darle ese toque de dibujo de acuarela a mano alzada que queremos conseguir. Podéis ver el proceso entero en el vídeo de aquí abajo o en mi canal de Youtube.

Hope you liked it! Have a wonderful weekend!

¡Espero que os haya gustado! ¡Feliz fin de semana!

  4. I love the tags, Amanda. These are so beautiful. I love your work, too. I recently (last few months) found your You Tube channel and have been catching up on all your videos.

    I have a challenge blog, Tuesday Morning Sketches. I would love to have you come play with us sometime, if you'd like.

    Take care - looking forward to next week's video.

  5. Such a lovely technique Amanda. The stamps were perfect for tags and you did such a great tutorial. I'll be trying this. Love the stamps.

  6. These tags are absolutely gorgeous. Every bit as beautiful as Bonnie and Kendra make. Thank you. (I just got some new AI stamps in the mail today've inspired me.)
