Happy Little Stampers September CAS Challenge - Watercolour Spritzing
Another month gone and we are rapidly spinning towards another Christmas! This means that it is time for yet another CAS challenge over on the Happy Little Stampers blog and this one is for watercolour spritzing
As always, Happy Little Stampers are sponsoring the challenge, so there is a prize up for grabs!
I will post the pictures first and then explain the technique I used after the picture (there are also some useful videos linked on the HLS blog to show you how). This is the card.
This was actually a one layer card. I took my Penny Black 'Bejewelled' stamp and coloured it with water based markers and then spritzed it a few times with clean water and then just stamped it down on to the card front - the more you spritz with water, the more you spritz, the more the detail is softened and can look like an impressionist painting - you can't really get this technique 'wrong'. I left the stamp on the card for a few seconds to allow the ink to absorb into the card-stock.
I then stamped my sentiment from a Stampin' Up set, called 'Blooms &Wishes'. I finished off the card with a few flicks of ink on a paintbrush and a few drops of 'Crystal Effects' by Stampin' Up.
That's it, a very quick and simple card that you can make in a hurry. Why not join us and have some fun with it . . . it's very addictive!
