Be Inspired Blog Hop - My Favourite Technique

Welcome to the Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop. You may have just arrived here from my beautiful friend Maike Ulbrich from Germany. If you are starting here please make sure you hit the next button at the bottom of this post and hop all the way around. 

The theme for this hop is 'Your Favourite Technique'.

For me, it would have to be watercolouring. I understand this might be a little boring for some, however, I LOVE to colour. I find relaxing and I like that there's lots of different watercolouring techniques. I can sit for hours and watercolour...(who said housework was important?! lol.)
I love this little girl from the Garden Girl stamp set, she's adorable and I she reminds me of my sweet little niece. I used Stampin' Write Markers and coloured some of the ink onto a clean clear block and picked up the ink with either the tip of the Aqua Painter and/or a Blender Pen. I used both the Aqua Painter and a Blender Pen on my project today. I stamped the image using Archival Black Ink onto Watercolor Paper.

Tips: Watercolouring takes practice and I certainly don't class myself as a professional! I suggest giving it a try with both Watercolor Paper and Shimmer Paper. If using an Aqua Painter I also have a small bowl of water and paper towel on hand to ensure when I change colours the pen is clean. When colouring I always start where I would like the colour the darkest and blend out. Try also using the ink from the lids of the ink pads and the Watercolor Pencils are great also. My advice is to have some relax time and practise....be warned though....it's addictive! 

Next up to 'Be Inspired' by is my amazingly talented friend Brian King from the the US, who is currently enjoying the Stampin' Up! incentive trip in Thailand....however still has time to be craft and be ready for the hop - he really is THAT talented! ;)
