Today's online card classe theme is; watercoloring. I have mentioned about a hundred times how much I admire Kristina Werner's work, so I am starting out with the card that she taught. The piece is done on watercolor paper, sentiment (Raisin Boat) stamped and embossed first with snow white powder. Then I tried setting up stamps on my Fiskars stamp press but I have so many stamps that just do not stick. I need to research this about polymer stamps, how to make them sticky again. My big red rubber snowflake from GinaK is the most reliable!
I used my little $4.99 watercolor set from Michael's and after taping down my watercolor paper and wetting it, I started in the center with the lightest color. Kristina used black around the edges and I used dark blue.
I added stickles because I am addicted to it and trimmed the piece down as water and paint leaked under the tape, so there was no clean white trim, which I love!
So, while my youngest son was undergoing weight loss surgery, I kept my mind off the worry with my card. Please keep Josh in your prayers as he recovers and begins his journey to a healthy body.
