Swimming Into Summer – Watercolor Mermaids

Ready for warm weather? Swimming pools and sunscreen? Be sure to snag the fun (and retiring) Magical Day stamp set for your stamping collection. The coordinating Magical Mates Framelits Dies are available at a discount – just announced today! (check out more Magical Day projects on my blog)

And if you’re loving the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper as much as I am, then you’ll want to get a couple of packages before those retire, too.  AND they’re 50% off, while supplies last.

For the watercolor on this little mermaid, I used a quick and simple version. Just color with your Stampin’ Write Markers on whatever surface is handy… in this case, an extra acrylic block.  Use the marker to create an ink palette, then use an Aqua Painter to pick up the color and apply it to your stamped image.

For this little lady I colored the full image (except her face) with Lemon Lime Twist, then went back and added a little Tranquil Tide to add dimension.  This is a nice simple way to dabble in watercoloring – and the Magical Mates stamp images are the perfect no-fail images to color!

  1. Brilliant Meg, thank you for the heads up on the glimmer paper and I have in the past used my Aqua pen with my inks smooshed onto blocks. I love this way of colouring because it means I have far more colours available to myself with my inks, my watercolour markers and my alcohol markers. :O)
