Watercoloring with White Craft Ink

youareremarkableI bet you already knew that you can watercolor with Stampin’ Up!’s Aqua Painters and Classic Ink Pads and Stampin’ Ink Refills. But did you know you can also watercolor with Stampin’ Up!’s White Craft Stampin’ Ink Refill too?

You can, and the results are a beautiful, white-wash of color (if that makes sense). 🙂

Here’s how …

01Stamp an image with VersaMark on dark paper and heat emboss the image with white embossing powder. Here I’ve used the new, gorgeous Remarkable You stamp set. Oo la la!

02Place three or four drops of White Craft Stampin’ Ink Refill onto a piece of plastic. Squeeze the Aqua Painter to allow one drop of water to be released. Mix the two until you have a thick paint. Add one more drop of water if necessary.

03Paint your image with your craft paint. When done, be sure to thoroughly rinse the Aqua Painter tip with water.

04Allow the paint to dry. You can speed up the process by drying it with your heat gun.

05Now place two to three drops of ink from a Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill onto the plastic. Dilute it with a little bit of water from the Aqua Painter. Paint the white-washed areas.

06If some areas need more color, paint those areas again with Ink Refill that hasn’t been diluted.

07Once done, blot carefully with a tissue to remove ink that has been repelled by the heat embossed outline.

10Assemble the rest of the card.

I hope you give this a try. I’d love to hear what stamp sets you used and how you liked the results.
