I never get tired of the Stampin Write markers watercolour spritz technique. It creates works of art every single time.
Just like this with the Royal Peacock bundle.
What a great way to tell someone how special they are.
What are the absolute MUST-HAVES for recreating the stamped peacock image?Stampin Write Marker Watercolour Spritz Technique
Let me show you how.
Stampin Write Markers Watercolour Spritz Technique
Colour directly onto the stamp with the brush tip of your Stampin’ Write marker. TIP: Use the SIDE of the marker to avoid damaging the more delicate pointed tip. TIP: Start with your lightest marker first wherever you want to put it then move through to the darkest one.
Spritz generously with plain water . TIP: Don’t be afraid to spray directly onto the stamp. BIG TIP: Hold the spritzer about 5-6″ away from the stamp. TIP: Move the spritzer for each spray you make.
Stamp directly onto your watercolour paper. TIP: Hold your stamp in place a few seconds and then lift directly up and off. TIP: You CAN spritz very lightly once you’ve stamped if you wish.
Spritz again WITHOUT re-inking and stamp again for a lighter impression. TIP: Use LESS sprays of water for this time as there is less pigment to dilute.
My card uses the FIRST impression stamped image. I liked the intensity of the colour for this card. The blending of colours happened automatically. And I quite enjoy how the details in the feathers do show on the left side of the peacock but merge together on the right side.
Jo’s Design Details
1.the peacock is backed with the third largest of the Stitched Nested dies in Pretty Peacock cardstock
2. it is then suspended over a cropped window with the largest Stitched Nested die
3. the greeting is layered onto detailed dies in Old Olive and Pretty Peacock and a “swashed” piece of Mint Macaron textile ribbon
4. the greeting element is attached to the front of the peacock with dimensionals to hold the entire piece in place
This is how the inside front looks.

A Final Peek
Once you’ve mastered this pretty simple technique, you might like to try the background on this pretty butterfly card made with ink refills and your Aqua Painter.
I really love the blending you can achieve with this simple technique. Your colours merge and melt into one another for simply lovely finishes. Why not give the Stampin’ Write markers watercolour spritz technique a try and then let me know how it works for you?
