Making a Scene Using Your Stamps and Watercoloring Process

Hello everyone! Welcome back to SBC! I'm Katelyn and I've got a new tutorial to share with you! I started doing this with some of my stamp sets recently and after having enough practice I decided to share with you this easy technique to extend the mileage on your stamps. I have two stamps here that I purchased off of Etsy. They are not necessarily intended to go together, but since the illustration style was the same, I figured I would make a full scene out of them. Some other supplies you will need for this project include stamps that "go" together, a fine tip black pen (or whatever color you're stamping in), a watercolor set, and a fine tip brush. Let's dive in to more details about the process.

Essentially, what we're doing is taking two stamps and filling in the gaps. The video gives a better representation of how this occurs, but I basically mimic what is around the already stamped image. The grass section tends to be the easiest since it is essentially a free for all. You can include rocks, dots, blades of grass, mounds of dirt, or whatever else your heart pleases. The key here is to also add stuff over/with the already stamped image. You'll see in my video tutorial that I will add extra grass and dots underneath the deer and in the forest. This helps integrate your new designs with the existing stamp set. Once all of the drawing is done we get to watercolor! I think this technique is particularly great with landscapes like this one.

As you saw in the tutorial, I mixed several different shade of browns, blues, and greens to complete my image. I took the direct colors and used them to fill in various spots of my piece. Watercolor isn't supposed to be neat and tidy, so if your brown bleeds into your green a tiny bit that's okay.

I hope you enjoyed this landscape illustration tutorial! I think this is really fun and you are able to customize your own scenes. If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments and I would be happy to answer them! Thanks for stopping by!
