Being a crafter means you explore different techniques as a way of finding the best finish for your project. I haven’t done much of this lately, so decided to branch out into water colouring by ordering some Fluid100 paper and some water painters, and diving straight in. The great thing about Stampin’ Up! is you can use the ink pads or refills as paint. Pop a bit of ink onto a block and use that with your water painter to create a water colour look – it’s messy but fun!
I wasn’t too sure what I was going to produce when I first started, but felt a floral set was a good place to begin. Flowers of Friendship has a lovely large floral piece in it, so I kicked off by creating a watercolour background that would help the flower to ‘pop’.
Experimental playing then produced the card on show today, it was fun and I would certainly recommend it! You might just see more watercolour cards from me in future. Or perhaps I will push the boundaries and experiment with other techniques cos I’ve been bitten now.
