The technique I used . . . is so very simple! Just color the stamp with Tombows or Marvy brush markers, do a little blending and shading right on the stamp, you can even leave a few spots without color, spritz it until you can see the water on the surface and stamp it on watercolor paper. I then take a small sable brush, dip it in water and pick up some of the color on the image and fill in the background.
