WATERCOLOR WASH TECHNIQUE

Awesome Card-001

Hi Stampers  My card today is:

Watercolor Wash Card using Stampin’ Up! Grateful Bunch Stamp Set and coordinating Blossom Bunch Punch

Awesome inking stamp-001

  1. Using Mint Macaron Stamp Pad, ink just the top of the stamp, Watercolor Wash
  2. Using the Cucumber Crush Stamp pad, ink the bottom of the stamp
  3. Using Crushed Curry Ink Refill, but some ink in a container
  4. Using an Aqua Painter and your container of Crushed Curry Ink, color the center  of your Watercolor Stamp.
  5. Huff, deep breath and breath on your stamped image to get it moistened.  Ink could dry during application.
  6. Stamp image on a piece of Whisper White Card Stock  size 5 1/4 x 4
  7. Using the leaf of the Grateful Bunch Stamp Set, stamp the stem and leafs in Memento Black or Stazon Black to get a crisp image.
  8. Stamp your group of three flowers from the Grateful Bunch Stamp Set onto a piece of scrap Whisper White Card Stock using the Black Ink we used on the stem
  9. I used Stampin’ Write  Markers to color my flowers first before I punched out.   I used Watermelon Wonder, Delightful Dijon and the Cucumber Crush
  10. Now you can punch out using the new Blossom Bunch Punch, set aside for a moment while we do our saying.  See how great the punch lines up with the stamped flowers
  11. Stamp ‘You are totally awesome’ on a scrap piece of Whisper White Card Stock then punch out using Stampin’ UP!s 2 3/4 Scallop Circle Punch
  12. Using a Sponge Dauber dipped in Cucumber Crush ink, I colored around the edges to give the Whisper White Card Stock some dimension
  13. I assembled the Card by using some Snail Adhesive to add the saying, then with some Stampin’ Dimensionals I added the punched out Flowers
  14. Now you just need to layer this on a piece of Cucumber Crush Card Stock sized 8 1/2 by 5 1/2    folded in half
