Welcome to week 23 of our 2021-22 Colour Creations blog hop! Tonight we are showcasing Just Jade a mid teal green from the 2020-22 InColour collection.
Do you enjoy watercolouring? I find it very relaxing and I love the way Stampin’ Up! products make me feel like an artist! If you feel nervous about watercolouring have a go at making this card – it’s actually very easy to do and I just love the way watercolour turns out different every single time.
To make this card I used Shimmery White Cardstock, which is excellent for watercolouring, however you can use the Fluid 100 Watercolour paper if you prefer. Remember to always stamp your images for watercolouring using the Jet Black StazOn Ink Pad NOT the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad.
You’ll also need the Water Painters and I like to use the acrylic blocks as my ink palette or you can simply lift ink off the lid of the ink pads. These are the colours I used to watercolour my card.
Using the two largest floral stamps from the Hand-Penned Petals Stamp Set I stamped around the edge of my Shimmery White Cardstock and then water coloured the flowers in Balmy Blue and Misty Moonlight, the leaves in Just Jade and the centre of the flowers in Mango Melody. I then used the Crumb Cake to watercolour the background space.
I didn’t want to cover up too much of my watercolour pattern so I kept the rest of the card quite simple, tying some linen thread around one side and into a bow and adding a small sentiment to the middle of the card. This sentiment is from the Art Gallery Stamp Set, stamped in Versamark Ink and heat embossed using white embossing powder.
It was only when writing this blog that I noticed my mistake – let’s just call it “artistic licence”! Can you see where I forgot to watercolour my card?
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Andrea Sargent – I can’t wait to see what Andrea has made this week!
