Breezy Watercolor Palette O'Prints


I did this card for a technique challenge on SCS and I used this layout by Beate. This technique was a lot of fun to do. What you do is you color you stamp with stampin' write markers and get your natural card stock wet with a spray bottle. Stamp your image on the wet CS and the color will flow outward creating a watercolor effect. Once the CS has dried you can stamp the same image again using a darker color (I used Close to Cocoa) or you can use your stampin' write markers again and you will have the solid image with a faded back ground.
Supplies:
Stamp Sets: Balmy Breezes, Everyday Flexible Phrases
Paper: Perfect Plum, Always Artichoke, So Saffron, Naturals Ivory, Palette O'Prints
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Always Artichoke Stampin' Write Marker, So Saffron Stampin' Write Marker
Accessories: Silver Brads, Word Window Punch, 1/4" circle punch
