Todays card was created at the Fair yesterday. On the first day of the fair, I always find out which items I forgot to bring. Neither my stamp shammy or paper towels made it into the truck. It was a bit messy spritzing and doing the Faux Watercolor Technique! Luckily, I have a black table cloth and the restroom isn’t too far away.
This Faux Watercolor Technique uses a clear block to transfer color onto the paper. The ink was applied diagonally to the block, real red on one side and old olive on the other. Then the block was spritzed with water and applied to a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper. For this technique, the block was spritzed heavily, almost to the point of run off. Be sure to have paper towel handy to soak up the excess if it pools on the paper. Once dry, the paper was die cut with a Rectangle Deckled Die.
The rose from the Wonderful World SALE-a-bration stamp set was inked with real red and old olive and stamped on basic white paper. The ink was applied by using the corner of the ink pad and carefully applying it to only the areas required. After stamping, the rose was fussy cut, remember to move the paper, not the scissor when fussy cutting for nice smooth cuts.
The rose was stamped randomly all over the Thick White card base using Tuxedo Black ink to give the background more interest. The greeting is from the Sending Good Thought July Paper Pumpkin.
