Limes – Watercolor Doodles or Stamps

Hello there everyone! I’m here today with a video to share of some fun options for a watercolor card. Why a card? Cards are awesome ways to practice nearly every art, or craft, technique. They are small, so they are quick and use less resources. Cards are meant to be shared, share with someone when you’re done. What’s better than making something, than to share it with someone else? You could also take these little paintings and frame them for a sweet gift. Leave out the Nuvo Drops, if putting under glass, or keep them for some fun dimension if your frame allots for it.

I’m a firm believer in creating at whatever skill level you are at. I thoroughly enjoy using stamps. ¬†With the Tim Holtz Tonic Stamping Platform it is totally doable for a stamp newbie like me. You absolutely don’t have to own stamping tools and equipment though. In this video I show both a stamp set from Concord & 9th, and my own doodled limes in a similar style to the stamps. They are looser, and less perfect, but equally adorable. Making a watercolor card with stamps requires a waterproof ink, link Hero Arts Intense Black, or Versafine. Dry ink thoroughly before painting. The same goes for painting your doodles. Use waterproof pens to ink when using watercolor.

This video isn’t perfect, but I’m learning. I’m excited to create something, and I want to share it with you. The only way to get better is to keep creating, and keep trying.
