The look of watercolor, the ease of stamping!

0 Comments

Don’t you just love the look of watercoloring?  I do love it, but sometimes am intimidated by it.  So, when Heart 2 Heart announced the watercolor challenge, I thought it was a perfect chance to give you all an idea on how to do it, without having to feel intimidated by actually watercoloring!

H2H Watercolor Slimline Card

I grabbed the Perfectly Imperfect Patterns stamp set, that has 6 different watercolor type stamps and 2 stamps that are splattered dots, and got started!  I used the Wild Berry and Lemonade inks for my card, and just went for it!

The stamps are stamped a couple of times each, and I did overlap them, and got a light orange color in the middle.  I used the splatter dots all over the card, in first, second, third, fourth, fifth, and even sixth generation stamping!  I even added a few in Archival Black, to help tie in the banner and butterfly body.

I used the small butterfly outline and cut out of the vellum, and used the detailed small butterfly in Wild Berry to ‘pop’ off the card.

The banner and sentiment are both from the Thoughtful Critters Stamp and Thin Cut.  I stamped the sentiment on some black cardstock, used white embossing powder, and then cut with the banner thin cut.  (then trimmed off the hands with my scissors)

I used just a tiny scrap of Black cardstock to make the body.  I cut with the thin cut, then trimmed the body out with my non stick scissors.

I hope you have liked my little project!  I would love to see you participate with the H2H Challenge!  You have until the end of the month to upload your creation!  (you don’t have to be a consultant, the challenges are for anyone that likes to craft with CTMH goodies!)

I would really love it if you left a comment below!  I love to hear what you all think about my creations!
