This week we're back to the oh so popular watercolouring and hoping you'll join us and PLAY along.
I've seen so many of you stamping, embossing and then watecolouring I decided it was time I had a play with this technique. So I started by stamping this beautiful sketchy butterfly and then heat embossed it in white.
Next I applied a colour wash in three colours using an acrylic block as a paint palette. I also flicked some splatters all over the card. And then went away and left it all to dry - getting better at this!
When I came back I intended to just stamp a sentiment, but wanted some of the detail of the stamp to pop a bit more. So I added some more ink - easy to get the colours flowing again on the acrylic block by adding a little water. I'm really loving this stamp and the watercolours work so well with it.
I finished off the card with a sentiment and a trio of sprinkle dots and then matted it all onto matching melon mambo card.
Stamps: Stampendous, sketched butterfly; Uniko Stusio, Sentiment from Flower Power #2
Inks: SU, melon mambo, daffodil delight, tempting turquoise
Embossing: Stampendous, white
Embellishmsnts: doodlebug sprinkles, bumblebee assortment
So now it's your turn. Have fun PLAYing with water colours!
Thanks for your time spent looking at my blog.
I really love this Jane. The embossing and then water colouring really does give a stunning look. I haven't tried this yet but must give it a go xReplyDelete
