QUICK TIP & TECHNIQUE - Watercolor Pencils On Stamps - Artfully Layered Bundle from Stampin' Up!

Hello my crafting friends,

Today I would like to share with you a fun and easy technique that can give your stamped images a cool and unique look using Watercolor Pencils. This tutorial also shows you how to get a splatter look using the Gilded Leafing from Stampin’ Up!


Create beautiful watercolor images using Watercolor Pencils directly on stamps. To achieve this effect lightly spritz water over the stamp. Color on the stamp with Watercolor Pencils mixing multiple colors if you want. Lightly spritz again and stamp.

1- This technique is best done on a stamp positioning tool like the Stamparatus. Add the stamp to one of the clear plates. Place your scrap Basic White cardstock under the stamp and hold with the magnets.

2- Lightly spritz water onto the stamp. Then color with a light watercolor pencil directly on the stamp. I used Granny Apple Green.


3- Add any dark color you want I used Garden Green. Then spritz with water again lightly. Then stamp with light pressure. When you remove the stamp don’t move your paper, you can see if you need more water, you can add a little more water and stamp again. Cut out with coordinating dies.

Clean the stamp with running water.


4- Stamp a second image using the same technique with different colors on the 3” Basic White Cardstock close to the top. I used Garden Green as my first color and Coastal Cabana as my darker color.



5- Stamp the distressed text image in Crumb Cake ink randomly on the front of the Crumb Cake Cardbase.


6- Cut out two tiny gold scallop borders in Gold Foil. Cut only the center area and trim the edges to remove the angled areas.


7- To create the Gilded Foil Splatter use an old paint brush, bowl of water. Mix Multipurpose Liquid Glue with a little water on your Silicone Craft Sheet. Tap across the 3” Basic White Cardstock piece (if you want gold splatter on the front leaf adhere it first to the cardstock before adding splatter). Let the glue dry.


8- Once the glue is dry you can add the Gilded Leafing to the sticky areas. Rub it gently to remove any excess.


9- Add the Top Leaf so it slightly overlaps the bottom leaf. Tear the bottom from the 3” Basic White piece. Then wrap 16” of Linen Thread near the bottom of the leaves.

10- Add the two gold scallops to the center of each side and adhere to the center of the cardbase.


11- Stamp the greeting in Memento Black Ink and fussy cut out. Add over the Linen Thread.

All Done!
