Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia here with you!. Today I have a new creation over my bible using one of the Color by Faith sets from Joy Clair Stamps, Be Brave and let me tell you - this is an amazing stamp set that you can use for many layouts over your journal or Bible.
In this opportunity I decided to color the background of my page using Gelatos from Faber Castell and I selected the metallic colors. The process was very easy:
- Protect the pages of your Bible putting behind of the page a layer of Wax paper. Yes, the same paper that you use in your kitchen!
- Apply the wanted colors directly over the page. Remember that gelatos are very soft and soluble with water so you only need to apply a little amount of color.
- Take a wet towel or cloth and dab softly over the color. The intensity of color will be determined by the pressure and water that you apply.
- Let your page dry completely before stamping the images from the stamp set Be Brave. I stamped all my images using Night of Navy Classic Ink and enhanced the details with coloring pencils.
Easy and simple, don't you think?
I would love to know your opinions and experiences using this watercolor technique. This is my first time using the wax paper behind my page and I really noticed the difference. Be Brave is a great stamp set that can be used to create cards too and I am sure you would love to have this in your collection of stamps. And of course you can consider this watercolor technique for your creations and journaling pages.
