First, we stamp the image. You can use an ink pad to do this. However, I prefer to color over the stamp directly with my Tombow Dual Brush Pens. I used two colors to color the stamp. I used pink for the flowers and blue for the leaves.
Once colored, I lightly misted the stamp with water and then pressed down my mixed media paper onto the stamp. Carefully lift the paper off the stamp to reveal the transferred image.
To color in the image, I used the indirect method. Add your Tombow Dual Brush Pen color onto the Mini Media Mat to create a palette. This Mini Media Mat is silicone based and the color sits on it ready to be used as watercolors.
Pick up the color with your Water Brush and paint to fill in the flowers and leaves. Add more water to create softer looking florals.
Add a bright background next. To do this, simply add the marker color directly to the paper and then paint over with the Water Brush. Paint slowly to fill in all the little spaces between the flowers. I chose a teal blue here and love how it turned out!
The last step is to add a little more depth and dimension to the florals by adding the marker color directly to the paper. Especially towards the centers of the flowers. Stamp a sentiment and adhere you colored image onto a premade card using the MONO Adhesive + Permanent.
I thoroughly enjoyed coloring in this beautiful Waffle Flower stamped image. The floral stamp was so detailed and the Tombow Dual Brush Pen colors just made it bright and happy!
