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".

I am entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Five.

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!

I am entering this card in the Simon Says Challenge Wednesday: Spring Flowers.

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".
