Why are so many people born between May and August?? What happened nine months prior that was so special, lol?? I am in desperate need of quite a few Birthday cards and I chose to use watercolouring on this card. Those of you who watercolour know that this process can take some time.
This is how I achieved the watercolour look on this card:
1. Used my Stampin' Write markers to colour my Poppy image from the Happy Watercolor stamp set.
2. Spritzed the stamp lightly with water before stamping the image on SU's Watercolour paper.
3. Masked the image just stamped with a post-it-note and repeated steps 1-3 along the entire side.
4. Used an Aqua Painter to "pull" the ink colour the paper from the edges of the image.
Spritzing the stamp with water first helps the ink spread naturally when you stamp. How much it spreads will depend on how wet your stamp is.
I head to Auckland tomorrow to begin my 2014 Convention trip to Melbourne. I am starting to get super excited to be involved in such an amazing, invigorating event. It is something I look forward to every year. Follow me on Facebook to keep up to date.
