Digital images and water colors.
Can it be done?
I experimented with this idea and did have a couple of failed attempts. My problem was often too much water. You definitely need a light hand when it comes to the water! This digital image from Crafty Secrets was printed in a light brown color. I wanted the lines as a guide nothing more. This image is pretty detailed so keeping the depth and shadows was a bit of a challenge. I used my Zig Clean Brush Markers. I love these markers because you can use the fine tip to get into small areas.
I used shades of red, orange, and yellow, with a bit of black to fill in the shadows. I cut the image using a Circle die from Spellbinders as well as a scalloped die. The background was done with a stencil and Tim Holtz Inks. I added silk ribbon from the Stamp Simply store and a few sequins to finish it off.
So I guess my answer to the question above is yes. Digital and water colors can be friends!
Do you use digital images? What is your favorite medium to use with them?
