SUPPLIES: Impression Obsession stamp; Tombow Dual Brush pens; Clearsnap ink; Canadian Scrapbooker Superstock; Coredinations cardstock; Brother ScanNCut

It all started with some Tombow Dual Brush pens and a really pretty Impression Obsession stamp.

I used a Clearsnap black pigment ink and stamped onto Canadian Scrapbooker superstock, which is a nice heavy weight to stand up to this wet technique.Then I slowed right down and coloured in the lines.

After making a Mother’s Day card with this pretty coloured image, I decided to try something different.

I thought, hey, let’s try a watercolour effect because these wonderful Tombow pens are water based and blendable.

So I basically scribbled colours all over this stamped image, not worrying about staying in the lines and then spritzed it all over with water.

And it’s that easy! Just let dry or use your heat gun to speed up the process.

I made the “Shadow Box” card design with Core’dinations Colorcore card stock and my Brother ScanNCut machine.

Here is a video that shows you this watercolour ‘cheat’ in action!

So give it a try!  Grab an Impression Obsession stamp and some Tombow Dual Brush pens and get your watercolour on!

Happy Crafting!
