Watercolor Technique In Color

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Well … we are over the hump and one day closer to the weekend, and a Holiday weekend too! A perfect time to celebrate.

Today I’m celebrating our new In Colors!! I have teamed them up with a great technique that I taught my Technique Club this past June. The Marker to Block Watercolor Technique … so simple but it can make a dramatic impact!

We took one of the clear blocks and colored it with our markers, you can add a second color to create a bigger WOW effect. Then simple spritz it with water until it starts to bead up … then press it onto your cardstock. We used the Whisper White … no special cardstock needed!

It’s an amazing site when the colors create the beautiful watercolor look. Let it dry a bit and then you are free to stamp. We masked the left side of the card so our image looks like it is captured in the block. The stamp set we used is the new “You’ve Got This” stamp set.

Here is the card done in each of our new In Colors. I marked them for you. Check out how nicely the ribbon, cardstock and inks coordinate!  Love it!!

I hope I inspired you to pull out your makers and spritzer and create some wonderful watercolor cards.

Thank you for joining me today …

Hope your day is full of color… Have fun!!
