Hello My Friends and Faithful Followers,
Today over at Just Us Girls Lisa has challenged us to use watercolors as our background.
The Design Team and I were definitely on the same wave length…a good portion of us used
orange somewhere on our card….is so funny with those things happen.
I just love Lisa’s card too!
Anyways, Let me give you a few details on how this came together.
First thing I did was stamp the leaves and flowers (SU) with versa mark and heat
embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I took my
Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight inks and a SU Aqua Painter and streaked them
across the page. I wiped off the excess ink that doesn’t stick to the embossed images
with a tissue. Then I stamped my script in Brown Stazon Ink. Last, I took
a paint brush that was heavily coated in Real Red mixed with Tangerine Tango watered down ink
and splattered the ink by shaking the paint brush.
( Make sure you cover your walls and workstation,
I didn’t and that ink went everywhere ! LOL)
Did the same thing with my Butterfly (minus the splat) which by the way is from Stamp TV.
The sentiment is from Verve!
All the paper is from Stampin UP.
Okay, I am also entering this over at Mod Squad where they asked us to make
our own Background paper and to use 3 Spring Bright Colors.
Now, Head on over to Just Us Girls and see what my other teammates did
with the Watercolor challenge and/or join me over at Mod Squad!
Find time to be creative…it’s good for the soul!
