Catching up on my Online Watercolor for Card Makers Class after being away for the weekend…
Today I tried watercolor stamping background technique… and also used my stampendous fragments embossing enamel, glitter and flakes..
The card base is Bazzil Marshmallow Cardstock, then I took some Picked Raspberry distress ink, watered it down a touch, then tapped my paintbrush over some watercolour card to give a sprinkled effect…
then I worked on the watercolour background technique… I used a basic grey background stamp with more of the picked raspberry distress ink, love how this turned out… the majority of background stamps that I own, have quite busy patterns, by that I mean that the pattern is quite close together, with tiny open spaces.
Then I took my Stampendous Shabby White Enamel embossing powder and sprinkled glitter and flakes, then heat embossed it from underneath the card, once melted, I pressed a small red rubber butterfly stamp into the centre.. you can see it better in the picture below..
Here are some of the other backgrounds that I worked on today…
The blue/green dylusions with clear embossing powderand another background stamp by Basic Grey.. work in progress, I just need to figure out what to put on the front to finish the card off
and then the same background stamp,without embossing, done in Wild Honey Distress Ink.. I might just give this one an extra mist with more water tomorrow.. it looks more stamped than a watercolour background :)
As always, thanks for popping round, and I will see you all tomorrow, with some more watercolour cards
