We will not be coloring but using a water brush filled with 99% Isopropyl Alcohol. Next you will need a piece of acetate or plastic of any kind to use as your pallet. You can even use your acrylic stamp handles for this. The Stampendous Jumbo Perfectly Clear Handle is a great size and works fantastically for any stamp!
Color your markers onto the plastic sheet or acrylic handle. Now take the water brush filled with alcohol an touch the tip of the brush into the color needed.
Starting with the background place the tip of the brush next to the line with you want your darkest color, then smush and drag outward. The lighter the color the less you will see the color until the alcohol dries. I added the contrast purple after the blue.
Want to put a little personality into your background? Fill a spritz bottle with the same alcohol you put in your brush. Make sure to label so you know Also make sure to check the sprayer is away from your face. Oh sure, you are thinking….”Duh”….but I promise you will spray yourself only once and then you will check every time after that.
Spray a small area of burlap. Gently lay it on the background for only a few seconds. You will see it start to work right away. As it dries you will see the texture of the burlap.
Double click on the photo to enlarge and see the texture from the burlap.
