Using a Tim Holtz Watercolor Paper on the smooth side, I stamped the Lattice Background stamp in Versamark ink and embossed it using Ranger White Fine embossing powder. I saturated the paper with clean water and added watercolor in diagonal stripes. I pulled the colours into each other to blend with each new colour added. I heat embossed the Thank You Sentiment from the Many Thanks Stamp from Simon Says Stamp in white on vellum and cut out a banner. I added a piece of yellow cardstock on the back so the sentiment didn’t get lost. I added yellow thread and glued it down using the 3D tape I used to attach the sentiment. I coloured some sequins using Copic Markers and attached them to the card. I mounted the watercolor cardstock using a strong liquid adhesive onto White Cardstock.
I used the rough side of the Tim Holtz distress watercolor paper this time around. I began by using black embossing powder to heat emboss the thank you from the many Thanks Stamp from Simon Says Stamp. I then took water and saturated the paper around the sentiment. I then took my brush with lots of water on it and flicked out from the centre of the card. I picked up my watercolours and went over the water I previously spread out. They spread on their own and blended quite well. I went back in and added more final touches with water and color. I mounted this card also on a white base.
This time I created a card that looks watercolored but it isn’t! I used Intense pencils to create this intense look on Kraft Cardstock. I white heat embossed this stamp from Clearly Besotted and coloured in the stamp using Inktense. Using the Tim Holtz Waterbrush, I went over the color to make it blend creating a more intense watercolour look!
For this card I taped down the Mini layered Butterflies Stencil from the Crafters Workshop using Washi tape. I dunked my brush in water and picked up the watercolor from my palette. I painted the stencil using red, yellow and orange watercolour paint. I removed the stencil and some spread underneath to create that extra special watercolour look. I finished off the card with the Thank you sentiment from the Many Thanks Set from Simon Says Stamp and a black card base.
