Inspiration Post | Stamping with Neocolors

Hey there Sketchies, it’s Leanne here with you to share a cool way to achieve an arty watercolour look using stamps and one of my favourite mediums Neocolor II.


I start by collecting my Neocolors, watercolour paper, water brush, stamps and block. This technique works best with a stamp that has a solid image.


Now I simply scribble a few colours onto a piece of watercolour paper.


Then using your water brush paint the colour onto your stamp.


Stamp the image pressing down firmly to distribute the colour.


If I find that the impression is to light or not complete then I like to add more colour to the brush and hand paint it on. If the colour is too dark then it can be lightened by adding a few drops of water.


I have continued on stamping in different colours to create a pattern that can be used on a card.
I like the slightly messy look of these circles!


Once my images were dry I added a word stamp to some circles in a coordinating colour before assembling my card.


I hope you have enjoyed my first inspiration post and that you try this fun technique.
