{Copic Colorless Blender} Watercolor

Sunday, June 8, 2014

A few days ago I shared a technique for using the copic colorless blender refill with
Today I have another.
For the two cards I'm sharing today I added a bit of color to an acrylic block directly from the ink pad.  Then I squirted a bit of the copic colorless blender solution onto the block as well.
Using a paintbrush, I mixed the two together and painted the color onto my embossed image.  For the flower and leaves I blended two colors with the solution before painting with it.
You don't have a lot of time to work with it as the solution evaporates quickly, but I loved the effect I got from this technique.
On the first card I applied the color to cardstock, but on the second I used watercolor paper.
Both worked well.
The only downside is that the solution starts to wear away at the embossing if you work it around too much.  You could add your color to you paper and then emboss to avoid that all together.

I had a lot of fun experimenting with this technique!
Thanks for stopping by.
