About This Class


Rubber stamps are very versatile tools and can be used for numerous different techniques. In this class, you will learn how to use them for a watercolor effect, something that is very easy to do and gives a great look. 

I will be making an art journal page, but the techniques work just as well for many different types of projects: card making, scrapbooking, art tags, and more. In the class, additional examples of watercolor stamping will also be presented.

We will paint a simple watercolor background, and then proceed with the watercolor stamping. Finishing touches will be done with sentiment stamps and more watercolor painting. I will also share a fun watercolor resist technique, which adds great texture to a watercolor project.

It is possible to stamp with watercolor paint, but this technique is easier with dye ink and/or water-based markers, and I will show you how to use both. The inks and markers used are from the Distress range by Ranger Ink and Tim Holtz, but you can also experiment with other brands. You will also need watercolor paper and paint, and any type of stamp. I discuss the supplies and possible substitutions in the class, and you can also find links to the supplies on my blog in this Versatile Watercolor Stamping post.

Outside my window, autumn is in full swing and the trees are gorgeous. This inspired me to paint and stamp an autumn scene, but you can of course use any colors and stamps that you would like.

I hope you will enroll in my class and that you will enjoy learning more about watercolor stamping.

Happy crafting!
