Watercolor Wash Technique with Countless Sayings 2

Pin It Now! Here's a fun and fast technique I discovered on Stampin' Up!'s YouTube channel this week. I was eager to try it out. It's a simple watercolor wash over an open script stamp-a sentiment with blank space in the letters.
Here's a link to the video:

I used Whisper White paper on this sample, but you might have even better results with the watercoloring on actual watercolor paper.
The cute random dot background is created with a pencil eraser! The tiny dots are made with the pointy tip of the Stampin' Write! Markers.
And we don't have Bermuda Bay Seam Binding Ribbon, you say?  Just sponge our Very Vanilla SBR and you have custom colored ribbon.
My color combo is inspired by our latest color challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  Head on over and play along!

STAMPS: Countless Sayings 2
INK:  Mossy Meadow, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, White Stampin' Emboss Powder
PAPER: Bermuda Bay, Whisper White
EMBELLISHMENTS:  sequins, Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon, sponge, Linen Thread, Scalloped Tag Topper Punch


  1. This is fabulous! I will be checking out the video.

  2. I love how you used the colors on the 'Sweet' tag! So clever!
