The third video by Jennifer McGuire in Day #3 Creative Watercolor she used a stamping block to create a mat I would say for your image. She then stamped and faux watercolored the image inside the mat.
I used my Koi Water Colors on an acrylic block, but first just like Jennifer I used versa mark and it does work, I must say you need to clean your block good because there is a slight film on it afterwords.
I also used some stamps from a variety of companys, Simon Says Stamp, Technique Tuesday, and Pebbles.
|Holding down my water color paper with painters tape.|
|Using the Versa Mark first along the edges of the block.|
|My Koi Water Color palate, I am using the blue, its on the second line last one.|
|I applied a thin layer of color then spritzed with about 4 sprays of water.|
|Holding down my block for a few minutes.|
|Heat dry on low.|
|Technique Tuesday stamp set called, Poppy Sentiments.|
|Used my markers to color on a clear block then my aqua painter to add color. I used fired brick, spiced marmalade, black soot, and walnut stain.|
|I stamped and cut out on a scrap peice of white card stock, then adhered with some Tombow Multi glue.|
|Using spiced marmalade I colored just the outside on the card front to match the inside of the flowers and to bring out a little more of the orange color in the center of the flower.|
|Used extreme tape to hold my water color peice to my card base.|
|Close up, the bow is tied with four sting of thin twine.|
