Texas Two-Steppin’

**I have FREE shipping and FREE tote specials going on now! Scroll down for more details!**

I have a SUPER SIMPLE little watercoloring project to show you today and it includes only TWO steps. Seriously, you can’t color any easier than this!

Materials: Stamp (Because I Care, earn this FREE as a hostess), Watercolor paper, Stampin’ UP! Classic Ink Pads (Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie), Aqua Painter, scissors, Dimensionals, needle and thread, Early Espresso cardstock and ribbon.

*Before starting this project, with your Stampin’ UP! ink pads closed, gently press the top down toward the ink pad inside. This will transfer some ink to the lid – this is what you’ll use for the next steps.

1. Stamp your desired image in solvent ink (such as StazOn). Do not use Stampin’ UP! ink or any other water-based ink for this step as it will run once we start watercoloring.

2. Painting Step 1: Fill your Aqua Painter with water according to the package directions. Place the tip of your Aqua Painter in the lid of your ink pad so it soaks up some ink.  

3. Painting Step 2: Press the Aqua Painter bristles to the watercolor paper to transfer the ink. The color will be strongest right after you pick it up, and will fade as more water and less ink is put down. There’s NO wrong way to do this, so play around with it! 🙂

*When you’re ready to change colors simply wipe your Aqua Painter bristles onto the watercolor paper until it runs clear.

4. Continue putting down ink colors until you’re satisfied with the image.

Tada, totally colored and it took about 15 minutes (which included finding my Pumpkin Pie ink pad in a box in the garage!) TWO steps – YOU can do this! 🙂

I cut out the flower, added it to a hand-cut tag of Early Espresso cardstock, stamped the included sentiment from the stamp set, hand-cut and added a few stitches. Retired So Saffron ribbon finished it off:

Howdy!

Why “Mama Bear Stamps”?

A few years ago my daughter and husband gave me the nickname "Mama Bear" and I've used it ever since! This year I even conqured my fear of needles and had the Chinese symbols of mother and bear tattooed above my right ankle. When I started this blog, I knew I wanted to go by my nickname: Mama Bear. But you can call me Tammy if you'd like. :)
