One thing I am really excited about is having waterbrushes again for painting with our exclusive inks! (In fact, we have 3 different sizes that you can see HERE.) I knew that I wanted to color the cute cat with a waterbrush and Champagne ink. You can read on for the technique, or you can skip directly to Michelle L.'s blog for the next project if you'd rather. I stamped the cat in Cocoa so that it would have a nice dark outline. Now for directions:
Step 1: Grab the waterbrush you prefer and your ink pad of choice.
Step 2: Squeeze the closed lid of the ink pad into itself to smoosh ink onto the inside of the lid to create your paint palette.
Step 3: Add a little water to your ink lid with the waterbrush. (The cat is upside down because as I paint from the actual top of the paper/cat's feet to the bottom/cat's head, the ink will lighten. I wanted the bottom of the cat to be darker than the top.)
Thanks for letting me share! I hope you'll try painting with a waterbrush. You'll have as many paint colors as ink colors, that all match perfectly. Now go see Michelle L. next!
