Water coloring with Chalking Ink Tutorial

Howdy! Crystal here trying out a new technique. Water coloring with Quick Quotes Chalking Inks! This is a fairly simple project. All you need is your Quick Quotes Powderpuff Chalking inks, brush and water coloring paper.

Step 1: Stamp your image on water color paper with Archival Ink.
Step 2: Stamp your desired colors onto a stamping acrylic block.
Step 3: Color your image using a damp brush and the inks from acrylic block
Items to note: Using more water will lighten your color. The chalking inks will not dry very fast on the acrylic block, making this an easy way to color and blend.

I combined this image with the beautiful Catalina Island paper collection and Catalina Island Chipboard die cuts.
