One of the Facebook Groups that I belong to issued a color challenge to create a card using the three colors below. I just watched a Facebook Live done by Jan Carlson, showing a Watercolor Technique using a Stamparatus and decided to combine the two and use the Mountain Air stamp set. I purchased the Mountain Air set a while ago but haven’t had the inspiration to start working with it until now. For Jan’s Technique, place the stamp onto the Stamparatus plate, ink it up then spritz with water. To avoid water dripping onto the paper, flip the base of the Stamparatus over on top of the stamp. Let the paper dry between stamping each image. If it’s too wet, the tip of a paper towel can be used to gently soak up the excess water. I used a little creative license and added a row of Gray Granite mountains, and a layer of Daffodil Delight was added to the sun, otherwise the only colors used were the three for the challenge.
The Night of Navy layer is cut 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ then center is cut out using one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies to create a frame.
The greeting is from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and I wanted the piece to be a little shorter than the die, so I cut the paper twice with the die by carefully placing the die over the cut out piece and cutting just the one end off.
If you have any questions about the card or the technique, just let me know.
