We so excited to have Alice Carman joining us this week as a guest designer. Today Alice will be sharing a different take on watercoloring. Alice is sharing two projects with us today.
Here is Alice…
Whenever I get to work with new product, I like to play with it. I stamp and stamp until I get the right look and sometimes I make mistakes that turn out to be super-duper cool. Believe it or not, but this card was a mistake, but I loved the way it turned out so here I am sharing it with you today.
To create my first card for today, I started by stamping on to water color paper using chalk inks. For this card I am using images from Colorful Brush Strokes Clear Stamps. Next I used a baby wipe and wiped across the card, which gave my background this cool swish feel since the baby wipe smeared the paint swatches. Note that I didn't stamp my my sentiment until after I had used the baby wipe as I didn't want my sentiment to smear.
Here is a close up of my card.
I made an additional card using Bokeh Time Clear Stamp. This set was so versatile, which I like very much. I tend to mix my stamps with other sets when I design. How super genius of JustRite to create a stamp set with the gradual sizing of the hearts, circles and stars. It’s a perfect idea when you want to add those extra touches!
I’m not sure what you call this look, but it’s fun to create something new. I started off with a base card, A2 size. Then I folded the cover in half, turned over the card and did the same with the backside. Then I ran the card into my die cut machine using a circle die on the front side card only.
I finished the card by stamping my sentiment on the inside of my card in the center of the circle die. Then I used the different size diamonds to stamp the cover of the card in different colors and outlined them with a white pen to define the images. Quick and simple!
