Watercolor February: Part 3 of 4

Welcome to Paper Crafting With Rebecca! I am so happy you stopped into my little blog. I hope you find the information here fun, informative, and inspirational. I am not selling anything. I am not sponsored by (nor an affiliate of) any of the products used or companies mentioned in my blog or videos. I simply create this blog (and videos) because I love meeting new people and connecting with others in the paper crafting community.

This blog is part three of a four part series for the month of February full of watercoloring information, tips, and inspiration. For this blog entry I want to take a moment to focus on the various mediums we can use in watercoloring: watercolor paints, watercolor pencils, watercolor inks (including water-based stamp pads), and watercolor markers. Here is a little video I made to talk about (and demonstrate) all those wonderful choices we have to craft with... including some pros and cons of each:

Hopefully this video answered a few questions you may have had about watercolor mediums or, at the least, provided you with some inspiration to pull out your crafty supplies and create something yourself!

As a recap, some supplies you might want to use are:

Waterproof ink, stamps, water-friendly cardstock or a watercolor paper.


Watercolor Pencils

Watercolor Inks (or water-based ink stamp pads)

Water-Based Ink Markers

In the video I turned all the pieces I created into cards, however, you can use your creations for cards, scrapbook embellishments, art journals, or even framed as home decor. The options for displaying your art are endless!

Here are the cards I created...

Mock-wash with watercolor ink.

Watercolor Paints

Watercolor Pencils

Watercolor Ink (and stamp pads)
