Watercolor Wednesday!

This month we are featuring Water Color Techniques at The Digi Shack every Wednesday. I decided this week to play it safe and dig out my watercolor pencils. These are the tools I started out with about a year ago when coloring in images, both digital images and stamped images. They really blend terrific and you can shade super easily. Here is what the image looks like when you just color with the pencils.

Very much "crayon" like. But after you add a little water and a brush stroke, the tones even out and blend together creating a more flawless effect like this:
Throw the image on your project and VOILA! Instant pizzazz!


I hope you give watercoloring a try this week with your favorite digis! Or better yet, why don't you head over to The Digi Shack and pick up one of those digis, like these cherries for a BUCK and try the technique on those!?!?!?!

Check out what the rest of the team has done with watercoloring. You can find their blogs on the blogroll to the right>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>


Supplies: Sassfrass papers and diecut stickers (Cherry Delicious)
