Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!
It’s time for the August MFT Creative Challenge! This month we are exploring the wonderful world of water coloring! I had SO much fun creating my cards today, and I have two cards to share with you.
My first card features water coloring and emboss resist! SO fun! I started with a piece of water color paper and cut it with Blueprints 1 Die-namics. I then stamped seven different triangles from Trendy Triangles using Versamark ink and then embossed them with clear embossing powder. Once that cooled I got to work with the water colors! I used water color pencils and had a separate piece of water color paper that I used for a palette. I chose three colors, pink, orange and yellow, and scribbled a bit of each color onto my palette. I then grabbed my aquapainter and picked up a bit of color once I added some water. I started on the bottom with the pink and then worked up to orange, then yellow. Once the water coloring was dry, I wiped off the excess and viola! The triangles appeared! LOVE.
On the inside, I cut another piece of water color paper with Blueprints 1 Die-namics. I then water colored the same colors as I used on the front. I stamped another sentiment from Fall Foliage using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.
My second card uses water color pencils in a bit of a different manner.
I started by cutting a piece of water color paper with Blueprints 11 Die-namics. I added a mat of Smooth White Card Stock using Blueprints 1 Die-namics. I chose three colors of water color pencils, blue, green and yellow. I colored directly onto the water color paper with the pencils, and then added water with my aquapainter. I kept blending until I achieved the look I was after. I stamped three different flowers from Grand Peaceful Wildflowers using Versamark ink and then embossed the flowers with black embossing powder.
On the inside I again used water color paper cut with Blueprints 11 Die-namics and added a mat of Smooth White Card Stock cut with Blueprints 1 Die-namics. I added more water coloring on the side, and stamped another sentiment from Grand Peaceful Wildflowers using Versamark ink and then embossed with black embossing powder.
