Make Watercolour Illustrations with your Stamps

Hi there!

Rubber Dance had a gorgeous new release a few days ago and one of the stamp sets are designed by me.... hurray!
I am a BIG penguin fan and so happy, that Bibi made them into stamps:

They are on sale until tomorrow!
That means they are 20% off.

Today I'd like to share something else you can do with your stamps, than just stamping and colouring. Turn them into watercolour illustrations:


Here is what I did:
I stamped the penguins with a light watersoluble ink (Distress Ink works great). After that I coloured the penguins with watercolours. I used a wet in wet technique to create some texture with different colours. I also sprinkled some colour on top of the images after they were dried.
Finally I used a black fineliner to bring back some of the outlines and details. It's always good to stamp a reference of your image onto a piece of scrap paper, so you can see where to put the eye or other details.

I used a gelli printed background for these cards and added some additional stamping to create a little more texture.




Thanks for stopping by today!
xx Susanne.
