Colouring Digital Image Stamps - Watercolouring

Watercolouring your printed images may be a problem if you use an Inkjet printer for printing because the ink will bleed as soon as you put water to it.

But spraying your image lightly with an Inkjet Fixative, will seal the ink so you can.

For my Hettie image above, I printed a sheet of images onto 270gsm smooth finish white card, using the greyscale & photo settings on my printer & then sprayed it with my fixative.

(The fixative by Ghiant is available in 3 finishes - Matt, Satin & Glossy. I use Matt finish for watercolouring. I find the the others repel water too much to make watercolouring possible.)

I let it dry for around 10 minutes or so, added the colour from my watercolour pencils, then blended them with water. My brush wasn't dripping with water, but it wasn't dry enough for the bristles to separate either - just dabbed onto a tissue to take off the excess.

You can use the fixative to seal your image afterwards too if you like.

And voila! Watercoloured images : )

I cannot take credit for this information, I found it in a blog by liz who is the wonderful pink petticoat.

Crafts are here

Crafts are here, crafts are there,

My craft supplies are everywhere.

I really should clean this mess,

but I like it I confess.

Floor is littered, chairs are piled,

Kitchen's looking pretty wild.

On the table, counter too,

Seems that any place will do.

Hall is stacked with cartons high,

filled with things folks like to buy.

Garage is full, but so far....

there's still room to park the car.

I never have an idle day,

New ideas come my way.

Don't know yet what I'll create,

but my imagination's great.

My family smiles, they don't complain,

although at times I am a pain.

but when all is said and done,

I really am a crafty one!
