Hi stamping friends! Leah here today to show you an easy way to get a soft, fur texture with watercolor. I pulled out the Easter Bunnies set as the cute little bunnies are perfect for this technique!

You’ll need your choice of stamps, water, a paintbrush, watercolors and a q-tip.

Mix up some of the color you want for your image and then dip the q-tip into it.

Then, with a pouncing motion you color in the bunnies fur with the q-tip. The color will transfer but will be applied with the soft texture of the cotton from the q-tip.

Once you are happy with the fur texture you can go over the entire image with a light wash of a different color to fill in the gaps and to create more depth. Once the image is dry you can then watercolor in the rest.

Now you have some cute, fuzzy bunnies! I created a border with the egg images also in the Easter Bunny set.
