SUO174 Watercolor Fun with Mediterranean Moments
It’s time for the #174 “Watercolor Fun” Challenge at SU-Only Challenges! I absolutely love to watercolor and decided to use classic ink and watercolor pencils for the watercolor on this card as well as added heat embossing and a bit of clear glitter.
I incorporated the CC633 Color Challenge along with the Splitcoaststampers’ Free for All F4A376 “It’s CAS to Me” Challenge, the Simon Wednesday “Pop of Pink” Challenge and the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration #263 Challenge into the design.
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 galleries yet, I encourage you to do so- fabulous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Ink the Watercolor Wash background stamp with Pool Party Classic Ink, use a paper towel to lightly pick up some of the ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
2). Trim the panel, ink the small splatter stamp from Timeless Textures with Pool Party, randomly stamp over the area and repeat with Basic Black Archival Ink (stamping off first) before stamping on the panel.
3). Mount onto Basic Black cardstock, trim and mount onto Melon Mambo cardstock. Adhere the entire card front onto an Extra Thick Whisper White card base.
4). Stamp the sentiment from Rose Wonder with Versamark™ onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, apply Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool. Hand trim the banner points and set aside.
5). Ink the Mediterranean Moments image with Stampin’ Archival™ Basic Black Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock. Color the image with Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencils and an AquaPainter™, adding additional color with Stampin’ Write Markers as needed.
6). Trim the image, mount onto Basic Black cardstock, trim and mount onto Melon Mambo cardstock.
7). To finish off the card, add the focal image and sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals® and use the Clear Wink of Stella® Glitter Pen to add shimmer to the background.
