Hi again! I’m Vickie Y and excited to share another card as the April guest designer.

Last week I mentioned in my intro that I live in a resort town. Our town is situated between two man-made recreational lakes. Growing up we spent a lot of time playing, waterskiing, and boating on each lake. When I saw the Live Love Lake stamp set I knew it would provide lots of special memories and creative FUN!

For my card, I used one of my favorite watercolor background techniques using an acrylic block, inks, and a water spray bottle, along with watercolor cardstock.

I used the D2BA Tropical Ink Cubes to ink up the acrylic block (see below), then  spritzed it with water, and smooshed it down onto the watercolor cardstock and let it sit for a minute or two before lifting it. I let the cardstock air dry (a heat tool can be used to speed up the drying process).

Once the ink was dry, I trimmed the panel and then used the Dare 2B Artzy Totally Black Premium ink to stamp the images and sentiment. I layered the stamped panel over the Dare 2B Artzy Slate designer paper from the D2BA Doodles Variety Paper Pack and dark blue card base.

 

Here is another card created using this background technique and the Flip Flops stamp set and the Flip Flops and Adirondack dies.
