Simple Distress Oxide Watercolor with Copic Coloring

Hello Crafters! 

I hope you all are having a wonderful week...
if it's a bit ho hum I have some good news for you!  

It's a sale! 


Honey Bee Stamps is having a 15% off sale including clearance and bundle items. Whoo Hoo! 
The discount will be applied automatically to your cart for July 3rd and 4th. 

I have a card for you featuring some Honey Bee floral stamps and nice and easy watercoloring. 


This technique is a super easy one I adore but haven't revisited in quite awhile. I love the soft watercolor background paired with the bright bold colors of the copic coloring. The layering of the die cuts add even more interest with texture. 


I started by stamping my image in watercproof ink. I then added water all around the image where I wanted the color to go. I used my media mat as a palatte for my distress inks and began randomly dropping pigment into the water on my cardstock. 
I'm not super rigid with it but I try to pay attention to what goes next to each other and how they will mix. 
Keep adding pigment until you're happy with the background. If your pigment is pooling don't be afraid to blot some up with a clean paper towel. 


Once my background was dry I used my copic markers to add lots of bold color to my floral images. I love the contrast of this with the softness of the watercolor. 
Once my copic coloring was done I used the matching die cut to cut out my image. 


For real I wasn't paying attention and my die wasn't 100% lined up. It cut a little high. I made do by taping them together and then popping the whole piece up on foam tape. 
You can see it but I don't think it's too terrible so I rolled with it. 

You can see the whole process in the video below.
