Now for the tutorial:      
 How I  Watercolor DigiStamps

I am by no means an artist ….  Just a Grown-Up kid who loves to color.  

Supplies:       Digital Image … Watercolor Pencils … Prismacolor blender Pencil … Aqua Brush

1.  Print Digital Stamp.  (I just use regular white cardstock)

2.  Using the Colorless Blender Pencil trace over the lines of the digi.  This will keep the ink from bleeding.  Or you can spray the image with a sealer.

3.  I color using 2 different methods.  Using the Aqua Painter I take color from the tip of the pencil and lay the color down on the image.  

The 2nd is to color around the edge of the images and with the Aqua Painter draw the color down through the image.

4.  That's all there is to it.  Here is the completed  image.

I hope this was a help to some of you.  I love to color and keep things as simple as possible.

Thanks for stopping by
