This technique was spotted on Lori Pinto's blog Lollypop Paper and Ink. I fell in love with how simply coloring with the new Watercolor Pencils looks without adding water or blender pens. I changed up the paper and the ribbon a bit, but I just had to copy the chicks and the pencils. Thank you Lori, this is so cute!
Recipe: Crumb Cake - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Early Espresso - 5 1/4" x 4"
Serene Scenery - 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"
Whisper White - 4 3/4" x 3 1/2"
I stamped the chick on the right first, then stamped her again on a post-it note and cut it out as a mask. Then I stamped the other chick over the mask so her tail goes "behind". She also got post-it stamped and trimmed so I could color the background with my Water Color Pencils. I used Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point and Old Olive. I also cut out a small oval from a post-it to be colored as the "sun" very lightly. I did use my blender pen on the Daffodil Delight to color it in and then stamped it with another stamp from the set after it completely dried.
I also added a little color to the chickens. Lori left her's plain white which is also cute. I couldn't decide, so I colored mine a bit with my Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pen.
Thank you for looking in today!
