Faux Watercoloring Effect using Stamps
Hi there! So happy you are stopping by for a fun technique video I have for you featuring Altenew stamps and a way to create a faux watercolor look with your stamping!
I’m also excited to be posting this video as part of a guest feature for Altenew’s current Video Challenge! Each month they host a challenge over on their blog where they ask YOU to create a video showcasing their products. Entries will be judged at the end of the month and there are even prizes for the winners!
This is a really fun challenge that I have entered in at times in the past, and I encourage you to break out your Altenew products to create something for this challenge!
For my card, I’ve chosen to use the Altenew Vintage Roses stamp set; this is an older stamp set of theirs, but I absolutely love it! I got it right after it first came out and have used it for many different projects (evidence of the staining on the stamps!). I also paired this up with the Birthday Greetings stamp set (also by Altenew), as the delicate script font on the “happy birthday” sentiment matched perfectly with the style of my card.
I used distress inks to create my faux watercolor look, and I’m going to walk you through the step by step process in the video below! Be sure to give the video a “thumbs up” if you enjoy, and subscribe to my channel for more inspiration and technique videos… I post new content every week!
