TECHNIQUE TUESDAY

Today's post will show you an easy way to make a watercolor background.  First here is the card I created using the technique and the From Land to Sea Stamp Set.



The colors are Lost Lagoon, Crumb Cake and White.  First I embossed the Lost Lagoon layer with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder.  To create the water color background behind the turtle:


Take the block size of your choice (here it is Block D) and scribble on it with the Stampin' Write Marker of your choice (here it is Lost Lagoon).













"Spritz" your block with a water spritzer.  This only takes 2 - 3 light spritzes at a distance of about 6-8 inches from the block.













Stamp your block onto your white card stock.  If you place your card stock on your Stampin' Pierce Mat, you will get more even coverage onto your paper.










Here are 2 different looks.  On the left, I spritzed more heavily and I also tilted the block a little to make the water and color "run".  The one on the right is just spritzed and then stamped.





The turtle and the little lantern on the card are colored, cut out, and popped up with Dimensionals.
Try this easy, fun technique and see what you come up with.
