Happy Sunday! We hope you are enjoying your extended weekend so far!
This week Avra is back joining us as a Guest Designer again! She created another card using the Dare 2B Artzy Dotted Swirls stamp set.
I recently watched a video by another crafter where she water colored with Distress Oxides, and I wanted to give it a try.
I heat embossed several images on water color paper with white embossing powder. I used swirl stamps from Dotted Swirls, and a leaf and flower image from the Wishing Happiness stamp set. I taped my paper down onto a board to prevent warping as I add water.
As I prepared to work with a color, I smooshed the ink pad onto the side of my glass mat, and spritzed it with water. I then used a paintbrush to paint the leaf and flower images, and the background, taking care to let an area dry before painting the area next to it if I didn’t want the colors to mix. (The embossing helps prevent this as well.)
When I was done painting, I let the piece dry for a bit, and then removed the tape, and trimmed the edges.
I cut the word “thanks” using this die 3 times and glued the layers together for dimension, then added Nuvo Crystal Glaze and let it dry for a shiny finish. I adhered the card panel to the same color cardstock that I cut the thanks from and assembled the card.
Thank you for visiting!
I hope you will take a look at some of the fun Totally Tracy stamps from Dare 2B Artzy!
