Waterdrops with Tutorial
my blogging friend Coni from Which Craft? recently asked me how I do those water droplets by Ryn and asked me for a tutorial. So Coni, this is for you:
I made the background with Brushos - it was an experiment - I do think distress inks would be the best, but I was too lazy for sponging..... You have to use watercolor paper. Stamped the droplets with Memento Tuxedo black ink. That hold up better to water than Versafine, which I generally use
I then take a brush, brush the drop with water and immediately lift off color from the wet drop with a tissue.
As I said - distress inks work better than Brushos.....but I still think you can see a sublte difference when you compare the first picture with this one:
The real effect you achieve with adding white highlights - my favorite pen is a white Sharpie
The whole process takes some time, but it is worth it!
