To say I’ve had fun with this technique would be an understatement!!  I’ve been using my watercolor pencils to add shading on top of solid stamped images!!! 

Scroll down and see the all the great images I’ve been working on, and be sure to Watch the Video!

Credit for this idea goes to the ultra talented Barry & Jay of Mitosu Crafts!!!  Thank you for the inspiration!
