Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Today I’ll be sharing my Facebook Live presentation of Watercoloring with Acrylic Blocks and the three cards I created using this technique. Last night I shared two of the three cards. Kick back and watch the video, you’ll see how these cards found their beginnings …
The first was my quick -n- cute Halloween card from the Festive Corners stamp set. I used the Stampin’ Write markers to apply the ink to the block and then spritzed it with water.
I’m using the Festive Corners stamp set …. again!!
The second card I created using the markers on the Acrylic Blocks features the Dandelion Wishes stamp set and the markers to create a background.
My colors are Balmy Blue, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Pear Pizzazz …
I used my Stamparatus for my sentiment, it allows my to ink it several times so it’s nice and dark and becomes the focal point of the card.
The second way to use this “Watercolor” technique on the Acrylic Blocks is to put the ink from the ink pad directly onto the blocks. It is applied thicker so the image will be bolder …
I used the Arrange the Wreath bundle and the Magic in this Night Designer Series paper to create this card. The fall leaves surrounding the greeting creates the perfect focal point for this card. Leaf colors are Pretty Peacock, Blackberry Bliss and Cajun Craze which coordinates with the designer paper.
If you watched the video … you know that each week I do a drawing from all the people who watched and commented on the video … I invite you to join us next week Tuesday for another Technique! Here’s the prizes …
I miss meeting with all my stamping friends face to face, so the Facebook Live seems to get me a little closer to my friends!
Here is one last look at the three cards I created with this FUN technique …
The Watercolor technique using Acrylic Blocks can be used for any one, any stamp set … any holiday! Just look, we have a “Get Well”, a “Halloween” and a “Card of Thanks”.
Thank you for joining me today. I’d like to know how you enjoyed today’s cards…
Have a wonderful day!
