To Everything There Is A Season- A Color and Theme Challenge :-)
I had a chance to play in my craft room today and decided to create a card using a watercolor technique for this week’s Pals Paper Arts PPA247 Color Challenge and the Splitcoaststampers F4A268 "Going to Pot" Challenge (see details here and gallery here).
Again, I hope you have the time to stop by the above sites to check out the terrific inspiration from the Design Teams as well as the other entries!
To create this card:
Ink the Corner Garden background stamp using Stāz-On Jet Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Naturals White cardstock.
Using an AquaPainter™ along with the Classic Ink pads from the color challenge, apply color from the Perfect Plum, Blackberry Bliss and Elegant Eggplant pads to the images (spritzing with additional water, drying with the Heat Tool and re-applying additional ink).
Add detail using the corresponding Stampin’ Write markers, spritzing and allowing the ink to run- just have fun!!
Use the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Write marker to color the leaves and add shadows and once you are satisfied with the background, add the white highlights with a Faber Castell White Pitt Pen marker.
Ink the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Smoky Slate Classic Ink and stamp onto the card front and use the Heat Tool to dry the panel completely.
De-static the card front using the Embossing Buddy® and ink the sentiment using Versamark™ Ink, position and stamp onto the card front, apply Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
Trim the panel to approx. 4” x 5 ¼”, mount onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim again and mount onto a piece of Perfect Plum cardstock, trim once more and mount onto the Blackberry Bliss card base to finish off the card.
