Hi Friends! We have another great giveaway from the fine folks at Art Neko (Formally About Art Accents) today! You can win the stamps I used in this postcard:
In today’s tutorial I will show you how to use a waterbased ink that bleeds with inktense blocks or watercolor paints to create to mimic the look of Chines brush painting and Sumi-e. Watch the video to see how:
* You can see how I created my inktense block travel palette here.
- inktense blocks or watercolor paints
- crab, seashell and sentiment stamp from Art Neko
- postcard back stamp from Art Neko (this large stamp is on sale right now for .99 cents! regular $10, hurry!)
- thick smooth paper torn to 4″x6″ size

- Stamp images with black ink.
- Use a small brush to add paint, let the colors run.
