F4A295 Watercolor Drip- Think About Such Things
I am so excited to be a sample maker for Dawn on her week to host the Splitcoaststampers Free For All Challenge F4A295 "Time to Loosen Up" Challenge!
This week’s challenge is to create a Watercolor Drip Technique Card (see here for more details) and since I do not own any ink sprays, I decided to use Distress Stains.
I was inspired byStampin’ Celebration’s SC114 Inspiration Challenge as well as the House of Cards “Add Texture and/or Color” Challenge for October and the Simon Monday "Wonderful Watercolor" Challenge.
I hope you will have a chance to visit each of the sites and check out their Design Team samples as well as their galleries.
Stamp the Our Daily Bread Designs Scripture Collection 9 verse using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto a piece of Watercolor Paper.
Wet the paper with the AquaPainter™ and put a few drops of Ranger® Tim Holtz® Distress Stain onto a craft mat- I used Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Ripe Persimmon.
Pick up the color with the AquaPainter™ and apply to the card front, spritzing additional water and allowing the ink to flow.
Dry with the Heat Tool, stamp with the thick splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge (using water only versus ink) and dry again with the Heat Tool.
Cut the panel out using the Big Shot™ with the My Favorite Things™ Stitched Rectangle Die and mount it onto Pumpkin Pie cardstock, trim and set aside.
Emboss a piece of white cardstock (this is from my stash and has a bit of sheen to it) using the Big Shot™ with the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder.
Trim and mount onto a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock, trim and mount onto the Crushed Curry card base.
Stamp the leaves from French Foliage onto Watercolor Paper using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and watercolor with the AquaPainter™ along with Ranger® Tim Holtz® Distress Stains (again, using Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Ripe Persimmon). Use a Sponge Dauber to apply Cajun Craze Classic Ink to the edges.
Carefully cut out the leaves by hand.
Mount the Scripture verse panel to the front of the card and the leaves using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Slip the gold clip onto the upper right hand corner to finish off the card.
