Watercolor Background & Stamping

Watercolor Background

For this card I had to practice a few times, to get the results I wanted. I used Distress Inks and a mini acrylic  block to get a rectangular shape.  The sentiment is from SSS "Color and Sunshine" and the banner is from SSS craft die "Folded Banner".
I like all the bright colors on the card!

This technique was given by Laura Bassen in the Online Card Classes "Watercolor".

Watercolor Background

This is the "emboss resist technique" given by Kristina Werner in the Online Card Classes "Watercolor".

I used different clear stamps of flower and place it on my Fiskar Stamp Press to get a larger image on my cardstock. The sentiment is from the SSS " Thinking Of You". I love the results of this technique!

Watercolor Stamping

This was fun!! For the first time i used my eraser to stamp! The results are cute little dots!
The Distress Ink colors are- mustard seed, broken china, spiced marmalade, worn lipstick and seedless preserves. (The green color was a mix of "mustard seed" and "broken china"). I die cut the hearts from SSS craft die "Large Heart Set" 5 times.
The sentiment is from SSS "Watts Up".

This technique was given by Julie Ebersole in the Online Card Classes "Watercolor".
