- January-Shaving Cream Marbleizing
- February-So Sketchy
- March-no hop this month
- April-Stamp Set Showdown
For my first project, I decided to try no-line water coloring again. This took me a very long time to color; so it’s not something I’d card to do on a regular basis. But I sure to love the result. The image is from the Birthday Blooms set by Stampin’ Up.
I saw a beautiful card on one of the blogs I follow. Since I already had the die she used, I thought I’d try my version of it.
As I won’t be doing a follow-up post on this card, I want to share the products I used. The Churches die is from Simon Says Stamp as is the Congratulations Stamp Set. The Stitched Rectangle Dies are from Lil’ Inker Designs. I used Worn Lipstick Distress Ink by Tim Holtz and just kept layering until I got the intensity I wanted from the palest of pink to the upper right to the dark rose on the left. The greeting and sentiment were stamped using Rose Red ink and attached it to a base of Regal Rose, both from Stampin’ Up.
I took an Online Card Class, Watercolor for Card Makers, and one of the tutorials was about water coloring on vellum. So, for my next card, I decided to give it a go. I love the technique…not so much the finished card.
This last card is a real evolution from a panel that was so ugly I trashed it. It took me so long to make the ugly panel I pulled it back out of the trash and gave it a facelift. I’ll share the process in more in the weeks that follow as well as details on a few other cards I shared today.
Now you’re off to visit with the amazing Wilma. Hope you had fun and thanks for stopping by. See you next month with another technique!
Here’s the full line-up in case you get lost:
