Good Morning Everyone ~ are you ready for another technique with my Painted Harvest in Watercolor?
I have been busy working on getting more of my cards ready to donate. I have another box to send out later this week. I still have so many cards to go through and box up. I am working at them a little at a time. Some are ready and don’t need anything. Others need to have some pieces glued down and an envelope. I will keep at it and slowly but surely I will chip away at my pile. I did manage to make 4 videos the other day. I have my videos for this week filmed. I love being ahead as there is a lot of prep work I have to do for the new catalog. Are you getting excited to see what is in it? I am always excited to see what ribbons we have as well as if we have any new bling ideas. What is the first product you check out?
Today I used another watercolor technique I saw online. The original idea used watercolor paint to paint the stamp. I opted to just use our ink. I inked up the stamp and then spritzed it with water. This was then stamped onto the watercolor paper that I had painted with water. You then have to let this dry completely. Once the images are dry you take the second layer stamp or the same stamp and ink it up then stamp it on top of your watercolor image. This will give you a bold image. If you want to soften it, take your aqua painter and water and soften the edges. I did that a little with the center of the large flower but with the leaves, I softened it more so there were not distinct lines. For the smaller flower, I did not use any water on it as the watercolored one was pretty blurred out and you can barely see the second stamped image. Set this aside to dry completely again. To finish off the center of the large flower, ink up the center and spritz it with water then stamp it into the center of the flower. Once it is dry, stamp your sentiment. Add Tear & Tape to the back and add it to the Rose Red card base. Here is the completed Painted Harvest in Watercolor.
