- Watercolor Pencils with Blender Pens/Water Painter

Let’s dive into the 4 Ways to Use Watercolor Pencils
If you own Watercolor Pencils you may have tried using them to just color and notice that there are streak marks from the pencils. To blend those marks you can use several types of tools such as the Stampin’ Up! Blender Pens or the Stampin’ Up! Water Painter. Depending on the tool you use to blend the colors will be lighter or darker shades. Look at the close-up on the right the flowers that are darker were blended with the Water Painter as I indicate below for you too.
A very dramatic way to use the Watercolor Pencils is to color on Black Cardstock by first applying a layer of Craft White ink first. This helps the Granny Apple Green watercolor pencil really pop on these leaves! To finish the card I used Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight to stamp my flowers (then punched out). The greeting was stamped with a White Craft pad and embossed with White Emboss Powders from the Basics Embossing package.
Watercolor Pencils can be blended with many things as I mentioned above but did you think you could use our beautiful glittery Wink of Stella? It’s so beautiful and easy to do as you saw on my video!
Another surprising way to blend your Watercolor Pencils is to use the Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter which is alcohol based! Make sure you watch my tips on using this fun technique!
