I would agree with Carolyn and say the secret is using water colour paper. The SU inks dry quite quick so I put a bit of ink directly onto an acrylic block to add a bit more colour. (This was mainly to the pot). The foliage and flowers didn't need any more colour than what was stamped.

Melis, do you use the SU blender pens please?

I was considering some water colour paper. I want to try out the SU blender pens, seen a tutorial that looked good. Got a pack of blender pens but no paper ...yet.

No, I didn't use the blender pens. Just inked the stamps with SU ink and then stamped onto water coloured paper. Then used a slightly wetted paintbrush to pull the colour out. Where I needed a bit more colour, I put a bit on an acrylic block and picked it up with the paintbrush. I will try and take a picture so you can see my practice pieces. I've just use the black versa colour cube to do a grey watering can.

You can use the distress ink pads by Tim Holtz or any water based ink pens. I've done something similar using the Whispers pens too. Use your breath on the stamp after you've coloured the stamp and just before you stamp. It moistens the ink so you get abetter image.

Your pics are lovely Mellis,
I have tried this method before using the TH Ranger distress inks. It worked quite well. I have also used the Whispers pens. If you use the pens it's a good idea the moisten the stamp with your breath just prior to stamping. It just softens the ink because it can dry out quickly. The TH distress pens are good for this too.

Welcome to the forum - I have not got any of the distress pens - what is the difference with those type of pens to the normal pens?

Tim Holtz pens so probably the same colours as the distress inks which I love. I have wanted to try these pens for ages but not got round to it yet! I like the idea of alcohol ink pens too.
Welcome from me too, Cariad.
