Hello! Welcome to another Pootler’s Team Blog Hop! We love doing these hops, sharing what we love with all of you! This time we are all sharing projects made using items from the new Stampin’ Up! Autumn / Winter catalogue. I am totally in love with this catalogue, and had a very hard time writing my ‘must have’ list this year….. but there was one bundle that was right at the top of my list…. Snowflake Sentiments!
This stamp set just screamed ‘Watercolour’ to me…. and I couldn’t help but make a Watercolour Smooshing card with it for my first make!
I love watercolour techniques (actually I love playing with techniques in general…. but watercolour is up there with my favourites!) and this one is particularly easy: Grab yourself a large Clear Block (or a tile, glass cutting matt, or other surface to use as your ‘palette’) and add ink to it…. I simply just smoosh my ink pad onto the block usually! add some water, and then pick up the ink and water mixture with a piece of Window Sheet (or one of those pieces that come with your photopolymer stamps!). This becomes your ‘brush’…. touch the Window Sheet to a piece of watercolour paper, and move it around to create some fun watercolour effects!
The background here is in Dapper Denim, Pool Party and Smoky Slate.
The sentiment can be added to your watercolour paper before or after the watercolour process…. you get different effects depending on which order you do each step in, but be sure to heat emboss your sentiment in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder to ensure it really pops through that watercolour!
This card was finished with that fun boarder die cut from the watercolour paper, and a couple of swirls die cut from Silver Foil Paper!
