SUO169 Mediterranean Sympathy
Woohoo! It’s time for a new #169 “Celebrating Green” Challengeat SU-Only Challenges and I decided to create a quick watercolor card using the Mediterranean Moments and Rose Wonder stamp sets.
I also incorporated the Alphabet Challenge “Y- You Choose”Challenge along with the Simon Wednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to stop by the SU-Only Challenge site to check out the rest of the Design Team projects or the other challenge sites, I hope you will do so- wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). De-static a piece of Basic Black cardstock with the Embossing Buddy®, ink the sentiment stamp from Rose Wonder with Versamark™ ink, stamp onto the prepared cardstock, apply Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and heat set with the heat tool. Create the flag banner by hand and set aside
2). Ink the scene image from Mediterranean Moments with Stampin’ Archival Basic Black ink, stamp onto Whisper White cardstock, heat set with the heat tool and color using the Black Watercolor Pencil as well as Stampin’ Write Markers- Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz and Wild Wasabi (using the AquaPainter™ to blend and soften the colors).
3). Trim the panel, mount onto Basic Black cardstock, trim again and set aside.
4). Emboss a piece of Old Olive cardstock with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, trim and mount onto Basic Black cardstock, trim and mount onto the Extra Thick Whisper White card base.
5). Add the watercolor panel from step #2 directly to the card front and mount the sentiment banner from step #1 with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
6). Apply Clear Wink of Stella® to some of the building surfaces to finish off the card.
