  • How to paint a piece of watercolor art. Watercolor With Chalk Inks - Step 1
    Step 1

    I started using a piece of Very Vanilla card stock, you can also use watercolor paper but I preferred to use regular cardstock because the final texture of the chalk inks are very soft.

    Step 2

    Over your craft mat apply some spots of ink directly from the ink pad. I used three different colors of VersaMagic: Mango, Red Magic and PurpleHydrangea. Spray the ink with Ink Potion No. 9 and mix if you want or keep the colors separated. Place the cardstock over the sprayed area, press easily, remove and let the paper dry. If you want to speed up the process you can use the heat tool.

    When the paper is totally dry, stamp the image background using VersaFine Clair Summertime and a Misti or Stamparatus tool. Cover the entire layer with clear embossing powder and activate the powder with the heat tool.

    If you consider necessary, you can enhance some details of your stamped image with a Memento Marker. I used the Dandelion Marker to enhance some details of the Ornate Background.

    Also using VersaFine Clair Norturne, stamp a sentiment in a separate piece of Very vanilla cardstock. If you want you can emboss this message with clear embossing or leave it in its original state.

  • Step 5

    Resize your stamped layer and paste directly over the Tangerine Tango card base using Tear it! Tape. Paste the stamped sentiment using dimensionals or double sided foam tape and finalize decorating with some drops create with irRESISTIBLE Pico Embellishment in Dandelion Color.

    The best part is that you can obtain different tones on your background depending of the colors of VersaMagic ink that you use and the way that you mix them.
