Watercolor like a pro… it's easy with Faux Watercoloring!

You must trust me on this … these cards are 100x prettier in person than the photos convey.. these Faux Watercolor Fall Leaf cards are GORGEOUS!  My friend Cindee taught me how to make these and they are wonderful! They are stamped with the Vintage Leaves stamp set from Stampin' Up!

This Faux Watercolor technique is really so simple..

1.  Stamp your Vintage Leaves stamp images with Stampin' Up! classic ink pads on Watercolor paper

2.  Use your Aquapainter to apply water to the stamped image

3.  Paint over the wet leaves with the Clear Wink of Stella glimmer pen

4.  Splatter some Gold Wink of Stella on finished project

It's best to do steps 1-3 quickly, or, do 1 leaf at a time.. don't let the stamped image completely dry before adding water.

You can also stamp off some of the images first, so that some are lighter and with less detail.
