Inks or Watercolors ?

After my last post where I  used Copics to get a watercolored hand painted look , I decided to use my inks to achieve a similar effect. I am pretty pleased with  the soft subtle look ,washed look,  as though the women are standing under high mid morning sun!

 Edited to add better daytime pics

  I stamped and shaded the image using ink and a brush..just brushed against the ink pad and went over the image to create some subtle shadows and highlights. the green was also done in a similar way.

Stamps- PTI , Simon Says Stamp

the colors were inspired by 10 min Craft Dash...grey, pink and green. this card took me 9 mins 20 secs.

and a tall and skinny card for CAS-ual Fridays

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave comments..appreciate it!

  5. how is it that even when you stamp, it still looks watercolored?!?!?! cuz it's in the hands I suppose. my hands are not so gentle. I feel bad for my patients ;)
