One of my favorite ways to color is with the Aqua Painter and that usually means that you need watercolor paper. Recently my friend Kathy Burke told me that she heard you can fill an Aqua Painter with rubbing alcohol. She heard that you need to use the 91% and not the 70% that are in most people's medicine cabinet. I never knew that there were two kinds and when I got home to check what I had it turned out it was the 70%, but the 91% was easy to find right there on the shelf at the grocery store. I was eager to try it out and so I filled an Aqua Painter and got right to work. I was so happy to learn that it worked like a charm on regular Whisper White paper.
I got ink out of the lid of my stamp pad and colored just as I would on watercolor paper, but directly onto Whisper White cardstock. You need to use Memento Ink as your outline. Watercolor paper is great, but it is more expensive and somewhat ivory, so I love that I now have this option to use my Whisper White paper!
For the frame I used Basic Black cut to 4 1/4 by 3 1/2. I then used the Square collection framelits to cut out a frame. I also used a tag die from the Curvy Keepsakes dies.
I hope that you like the new coloring tip about adding alcohol to your Aqua Painters! I know am going to be doing this a lot!
