Hi there everybody. I am back with an entry for the CAS Mix Up Challenge which this time is a watercolour theme..Loose Watercolouring to be exact.
I placed the flourish stamp in my stamp positioner and I started with the blue putting little bits of the powder straight on to the stamp. I then spritzed with some water and moved the colour around with a waterbrush and stamped onto a piece of white card. I kept going back in and moving the colour till I thought the coverage was good, and then I did the same with the green. It pooled a bit in the centre but I thought that added to the loose watery look, and I also spattered a little of the Rich Gold powder which I have too. I just added some water to it on my glass mat and loaded my waterbrush and tapped it to splatter the background a little... it's very fine so it isn't easy to see. I then die cut it using a stitched square die cutting it down a bit as the stamp is rather large. It does look a bit like cream card but is definitely white, and was a leftover piece sitting on the table and seemed to match OK until I saw the photo, although in real life it looks fine.
I continued with the background white card cut to fit my 6" square card and die cut an aperture using the same sized die and I then dry embossed the stencil onto it. I finished by adding a sentiment using Versafine and heat embossed it with WOW Metallic Rich Gold Embossing Powder and added the background onto the card setting the topper into the aperture.
Thank you for visiting me here today and I hope to see you again soon.
