Watercolor Background - Video Tutorial

I love to use detail stamps, but don't always have a lot of time to do all the coloring, using the eBrush to create my watercolor background really saved a lot of time, and was quick and easy to do with minimal supplies.

Here's a quick video tutorial on how I created the background

Stamps - Cornish Heritage Farms 
Card Stock - Clay Coated, Black, Dusty Durango, Bahama Breeze 
Ink - Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, Ranger Black Archival
Other - eBrush with SP-01 Adapter, STAEDTLER Mars Graphic Jr. Watercolor Markers/Watercolor Pencils, Acrylic Panel, Non Stick Craft Mat, Glimmer Mist, Ink Blending Tool, Heat Tool

For those who don't have time to watch the video, here is the background I created using the STAEDTLER Markers, eBrush and Glimmer Mist

Once dry, I added my stamped image

You can then use the stamped panel as desired.  I wanted to add additional colors for more detail, so I added color using the watercolor pencils.

Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous, Lisa!! And what a good idea to spritz the acrylic block with shimmer mist, instead of just plain old water! Totally cool results and a beautiful card!! XOXO-Shari
