Tweedledum/dee stamps from Visible Image

Watercoloring Tweedledum/dee stamps using  kuretake watercolors and brush pens 

This was such a fun and cute image to watercolor.
I purchased the new wonderland stamps by visible image.
This one by far is my favorite!

If you haven't already seen the new release of all the wonderland stamps here is what they have available.

Here is the link to Visible Image 

I created these super cute treat bags using these images and the Lawn Fawn Goodie Bag die

This was a fun project I just wanted to share how cute and fun these images are.

So back to the card at hand.
I used the tweedledum/dee stamp and Kurtake Gansai Watercolors to color them in. I also used two Koi coloring brush pens Red and blue to add a little more vibrancy at the end of the card. If you haven't tried the Koi coloring brush pens oh my word are they amazing and they blend like a dream even with watercolors.I think they are very affordable as well. The Water color paper Im using is from Arteza and I love it.


I stamped my image using Archival ink Rose Madder to give it a very faint line you could use something more lite. This way I can color my image in and then I go back when I'm done and outline the whole image using a Micron Pen. You can see the difference  bellow with and without the outline of the micron pen.



It just makes it pop and look how much more vibrant the colors look as well I have not touched up anything on the right just outlined the image.

To finish off the card I watercolored the background by getting the paper wet first the add the water in avoiding the images. I used the stitched rectangle frames to finish the boarder of my card. And I added a few sequence with glossy accents.
