Watercoloring Card-09 Nov 2017-Stamp With Shar

Watercoloring Card

When doing a Watercoloring Card there is no right or wrong way to do it. I am not a watercolor artist but this card is just beautiful.

Watercoloring Rose Stamin' Up

Aqua Painter are a must have in your craft supplies. They come two in a pack. I use one with plain water and the other one I fill half water and half rubbing alcohol.

Cutting & Scoring

  • Card base is Berry Burst cut at 5 ½ by 8 ½ scored at 4 ¼
  • Whisper White for the front cut at 3 ¾ by 5
  • Another Whisper White for the front cut at 2 ½ by 4
  • For the inside of the card Whisper White cut at 4 ¼ by 5

Instructions

  • Fold card base in half
  • Add the 3 ¾ by 5 piece to the front
  • On the smaller piece 2 ½ by 4 you are gonna take your embossing buddy and wipe the card stock removing all the oils from the card allowing for easy heat embossing
  • Stamp the images and apply the clear embossing powder over and heat set it
  • With Pool Party Ink you will squeeze the lid getting ink in the lid, take your Aqua Painter and drop it into the ink and smear it around and color over the words. Remember to clean the lid before closing the ink pad as the ink now has rubbing alcohol in it.
  • With Berry Burst you will do the same, squeeze the lid till ink is in the lid and with the Aqua Painter again pool the ink in the lid and color the rose
  • I did the stem with Lemon Lime Twist
  • Added a bow with the Solid Black Bakers Twine
  • Then attached it to the front of the card
  • Stamped the inside and added it to the inside

Instructions For Card

  • I used the stitched looking flower and stamped the card base with it in the Craft Ink
  • Took the solid bakers twine and wrapped it around the card a few times and tied a bow
  • The Crumb Cake square I stamped the big shape and used the stripped pieces that fit into the star looking thing (don’t know quilting terms)
  • On a scrap piece of Whisper White I ran it through the big shot with the flower framelit I did use the multipurpose adhesive sheet on the scrap piece of Whisper White, so when I took the flower off the petals would be sticky allowing me to add the petals in the Lemon Lime and Tranquil Tide
  • Die cut a Lemon lime flower and a Tranquil tide flower so I would have the different color petals
  • Attached the Crumb Cake square to the Whisper White square
  • Popped the Whisper White square on dimensional’s

Instructions For Notepad

  • With the Envelope Punch Board I rounded all the corners
  • Took the stitched looking flower and stamped all over with the White Craft Ink
  • Took my Notepad and the DSP and attached it to the Notepad with Tear & Tape
  • Took the Notepad and put Tear & Tape at the back of the Notepad and attached it into the middle of the cover
  • Punched out a ¾ inch circle with Lemon Lime Twist
  • Also Punched out a 1 inch circle with the Tranquil Tide

  • Take you tissue paper and crumple it up real good, when you open it make sure you are careful not to rip it
  • Open one end of the adhesive sheet an lay it on top of the 3 3/4 by 5 piece of whisper white, give it a good press
