Water Colored Lighthouse Scene

Water Colored Lighthouse Scene


I recently viewed this video (and several others in the AI Water Color series) where stamps, markers, and water are used to create amazing water colored scenes and images.

I placed an order for some Art Impressions “scene building” water color stamps to try it out, but while I was waiting for those stamps to arrive, I decided to practice with a single scene stamp that I already owned just to get the feel of moving ink with water, and this is the card I created.

I used the lighthouse stamp (#97173-X) by Inkadinkado with Spectrum Aqua markers and water to create my water colored scene.  The stamp and paper were on my MISTI stamp positioner so I could work on small sections of the stamp at a time.

Here is a sample of the image just stamped in Onyx Black versafine ink.  You can see how “sketchy” the image is.  (I’m not sure if that made it easier or harder to get a good, water colored look.)


I am anxious to try this again with the scene building stamps when they arrive!

Thanks for checking out my card project!

  1. I love this gorgeous scene and especially in the colors you made it. I need to practice more on water coloring myself soon.


  2. You should be proud of this card as it is wonderful. If this is what you can create using that particular stamp then I am looking forward to seeing what you do with scene builder stamps when they arrive. When I first looked at the card it reminded me of my hubby’s photographs where he changes the image in post processing. I absolutely love what you have created.


  3. You’ve created an amazing scene. It looks like a picture you would find in a gallery. What a good idea to work on just small portions at a time using MISTI.
