It’s Friday and I am looking forward to sharing scrapbooking with some of you in Hamilton tomorrow. I’ve had two weeks off for the school holidays and after a very quick trip to a conference in the USA, and I’m ready to get back into teaching!
Today’s share is actually a card I didn’t make, but rather one of my team, Sally Robertson. She shared this at the last Extravaganza, and I thought her work was really well done. It’s a simple concept, but so effective!
Create a watercolor wash in the background by quickly loading up an Aqua Painter with a small amount of ink and plenty of water and quickly covering the background.
Once dry, you can add your stamped images. Make sure it’s completely dry; our classic inks are waterbased, so any amount of dampness will cause the ink to bleed or at least become a little blurry. The low setting on your Heat Tool is perfect for drying things without melting them (you’d want the higher “melt” setting for embossing powders).
I was quite taken with the flower here and the idea behind it; it’s not something I think I would have created on my own. Our guests made their “own paper” by sponging various inks onto Whisper White, and then splattering water to create the droplet effect.
I must remember to make my own papers in these various, cool ways when I want something unique or specific! IMO, all crafters need a good stash of inks for this type of thing exactly.
Supplies for this card include the Daisy Punch, the Medium Daisy Punch, the Daisy Lane stamp set, and an Aqua Painter.
