I played around in my craft room this afternoon – playing with some watercoloring ideas!!
I created this:
The first one I tried is using a Kaleidacolor inkpad – for this I used Desert Heat – I took the inkpad and inked up an acrylic block with it, then spritzed it with water. I took the acrylic block and applied the spritzed ink directly to watercolor paper. I did this with the Fresh Greens Kaleidacolor pad as well!!
The second thing I tried was using the spritzed ink on the block to ink up a stamp – it made a cool look on the rose I stamped from the Avery Elle Petals & Stems stamp set!! I also stamped the leaves on the Fresh Greens pad and made the leaves!
I used the Avery Elle Petals & Stems Elle-ments dies to cut out the rose and the leaves that I had stamped!!
Used a Signo white gel pen that I ordered from Stampin’ Up to trace the details of the rose!!
I used a Avery Elle Die to cut out the pinked rectangle and then I used Cameo Coral and Green Galore SU! cardstocks to add layers – and the floss I used for the accent and bow was from my stash, not sure of the color!!
The sentiment was stamped in a banner that was also from the Avery Elle die I mentioned above! I used a Versamark inkpad and white embossing powder on vellum with a sentiment from the AE Petals & Stems set!
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
I am really happy with how my watercoloring adventure went!! Excited to try even more!!
