Hello Dear Readers, it's so good to see you again! For those of you who are new, Welcome to my blog!
I am so happy to be participating in the Pretty Pink Posh Watercolor Hop over on MarkerPOP's post! The hop will start tomorrow, Friday, June 5th and will run until Monday, June 8th 11:55 pm PST.
So why is my post a day early? To let you know that MarkerPOP is giving away a $25 gift certificate to one lucky hopper in tomorrow's hop.
Today I am featuring some watercoloring and how beautifully it can be paired with Copic Markers. This little cutie is Tilda With Fan from the most recent Magnolia of Sweden release, Sakura. I've colored her with Copic Markers and I've colored the background and flowers with Ranger Distress Inks.
I wanted to make this a very clean and simple design to show off the watercolor background. This was a new technique that I tried with Distress Inks and an acrylic block. After inking the block I misted it with water and stamped the ink to watercolor paper. It took several tries before getting the water/ink ratio right and getting the effect I was going for.
The cherry blossom branch was made using the Memory Box Woodland Branch die, the Magnolia DooHickeys volume #5 Small Flowers Die and the same acrylic block stamping technique.
