Probably my single most favorite way to use the Clean Color Real Brush Markers (available in sets and individually), is to emboss an outline image onto watercolor paper, swipe some gentle strokes of color over the tops of those embossed lines, and then pull and blend the color out with water brush.
The embossed lines kind of act as a dam or reservoir, holding the water and color in check. You'll notice I use some clean paper towel to blot away water and color both, as I am working, to achieve initial soft washes of color. Then I go back and add more, and blot more to create layers of color and depth to the image.
Two keep the florals from overwhelming the sentiment, I used two different shades of pigment ink.
Here is another example of the same watercoloring technique, but in very bold, rich colors. The images were stamped with black pigment ink and then embossed in clear.
To make sure the sentiment didn't disappear, I opted to white emboss it onto a scrap of black card stock.
