Warm greetings to PTI Blog Hoppers! I’m excited to share a watercolor card with you today.
My card was inspired by the challenge photo from PTI’s February Blog Hop Challenge. I was also inspired by a new product from Cosmo Cricket. It is watercolor paper named “Just Add Watercolors” and I think it looks pretty cool!
I wanted to create a similar pattern to PTI’s challenge photo using an emboss-resist technique, but didn’t have a Quatrefoil die or stamps to do so. I thought about it for a while before I came up with an idea. I used a stamp from my PTI Super Stripe stamp set, attaching it to my stamp press in a wavy line.
Next, I stamped the wavy line in VersaMark and heat embossed the image with clear embossing powder.
Then I inked up my stamp press with a variety of ink pads, spritzed it with water and applied the press to the paper. This did not work as well as I’d hoped, so I got out my paint brushes and applied the ink that way instead.
Thanks for stopping by!
