TIPsy Tuesday - Filling in the Lines

If you miss a spot when stamping an image for watercolor, you don't necessarily have to scrap it.  If I have a marker color to match - usually black - I can fill in the missing lines manually.  However, I have learned to do that AFTER I color the image.  My black zig marker runs when watercolor is applied so I just add the lines after I color the image.

  1. Here is a Staz-on stamped image that didn't quite fill out all the lines. 
  2. I watercolored the image using watercolor crayons and blender pens.
  3. Then, I used a thin black marker to fill in the missing lines.  A light touch works best.

I'm doing more watercoloring this week since that is something I can do without having access to my craft space. 

Hope you are having a fun summer week!

Ingredients:  Stamps:  Mailbox Greetings from Papertrey Ink
Ink:  Jet Black Staz-on, various watercolor crayons from Stampin' Up!

  1. Beautiful coloring, Lisa. And a great tutorial to show us how to save some of our paper with those not-so-perfectly-stamped images.
