Watercolor Wash Serene Silhouettes

The other night I attended one of my upline's many stamp club classes.  Dawn Olchefske has a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to new techniques!  And that night she challenged me to be 'less than perfect' with the technique we were trying.  I trusted her . . . and my card turned out great!

Today I am featuring a technique we learned back a few months - Watercolor Wash.  It's a super easy technique with a whole lot of WOW! 

The Watercolor Wash technique is achieved quite easily using Stampin' Up!'s Aqua Painters and ink from inside the lid of your ink pads!  Then the image is then stamped once the wash dries, using black Stazon ink.

To see a video of this technique, click on Dawn's name below - then try it out today!

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
