Craft Your Joy: Watercolor Ink Effects with Dye Inks

Most of you know watercolor is my JAM! And I'm a bit of an art supply, technique junkie. In this video, I'm sharing how I use Gina K Designs dye based inks to create watercolor effects for stamped images.

I'm also sharing my exclusive to Gina K Designs stamp set, "You Are" sentiment and wreath builder set based on my original watercolor art and handlettering. A little technique video share. Enjoy!

I'm thrilled to be a part of the illustrator team for Gina K Designs.

Hi Diana! Thank you for your kind words. Yes! Fixing "happy mistakes" is kind of my thing since I'm a bit of a messy stamper. Gina is the absolute best, you are so right! She's a bright shining light of positivity and that's just my kinda thing :)

Beautiful card - love the way you stamped it and fixed the “smudge”.  Congrats on joining Gina K - she is the best and thanks for sharing with us!

Hi Beth! Thank you for the sweet words. I'm grateful you took the time to comment. I plan to share more watercolor techniques, so I hope they will be helpful to you. Woo to the Woot!

I love what you did with the wreath and the sentiment and I will try it myself. I’m learning how to do watercolor so I appreciate your tips!

Hi LaRayne,

Ok, you may be surprised at the answer. So, it's a piece of poster board that I had laminated at Staples. It's perfect for photographing and video and I can make a huge mess on it with paints, inks, etc. It all wipes off and it's oversized so it covers more area than most craft mats.... You know for wandering messes... :)

Hi El! Watercoloring may seem challenging because it can be a bit hard to control compared to other mediums, but with a little play and practice its super fun. You can see in the video how I boogered up some spots, made happy mistakes and results varied. Just dive in and play. I guarantee you'll love it. A waterbrush helps control water flow, but a paint brush gently dipped into water can work too! I would love to see what you create! Hope this helps.

Beautiful. This will take a bit of practice, but the end result is going to be gorgeous.  Love how you coordinated the sentiments to fit perfectly.
