Watercolor Spritz Video Tutorial

I had posted this card on my blog a couple of weeks ago. I had several questions about how I created the background, so I decided to do a video tutorial. Here are the other cards that I showed in...

Paula Dobson - Stampinantics: Stampin Up - fabulous sponging

SOMEWHAT LIMITED

I created this card while at the Palmerston North Craft & Quilt Show. I needed to sit down after being on my feet most of the day! I may as well be doing something, right? So, I pulled out some ink and my sponges and got to work. I couldn't take my craft room to the show so was pretty limited in what I had with me. But it just goes to show - you don't need to have EVERYTHING to create a work of art. That goes for the Stampin' Up! catalogue too. As much as I would like EVERYTHING - I just…

By Anne. Sponged background (mask used). Die-cut circular openings in 2 panels. Little birds die-cut too ("Resting Bird" die set from Memory Box)

Stampinantics: WATERCOLOUR INSPIRATION

WATERCOLOUR INSPIRATION

It never ceases to amaze me where we find inspiration as artists. I was visiting a Quilter friend today and she showed me a book by a Quilt artist. One photo just jumped out at me and I had to try and capture the colours she had used. I don't pretend to be a watercolour artist and I did find it hard to "stop" before the colours became muddy. But overall, I am pretty happy with the end result. I used Stampin' Up!'s watercolour paper and an Aqua Painter to apply a watercolour wash in Daffodil…

Stampin' Up! Serene Silhouettes with a watercolour wash background

Today's card is for a friend who needs a cuddle by mail this week. Thinking of you handmade cards do that just perfectly I think, don't you? How I created this card: The shadow effect with the tree was a happy accident! I stamped the image first in Stazon (that I clearly needed to re-ink!) and when it didn't turn out as solid as I liked, I embossed another one a little off centre using black embossing powder. The watercolour background was done before I stamped and embossed (make sure it's…
