Waterfront note

January 20, 2018

My card today uses the Waterfront stamp set and the same inks as the card I shared yesterday.  To create today’s card I watched a video by Jaquie Bolhuis to create a more watercoloured look to my card. I stamped the mountain image twice  onto Watercolour Paper using Garden Green ink.  After the images were stamped, I used an Aqua painter to move the ink around inside the outline of each image.  I stamped the mountain image a couple more times behind the first images using Garden Green ink which I had stamped off onto scrap paper first.  I used the Aqua Painter to once more move the ink around inside the outline of each image.  I stamped the ground using Crumb Cake ink, the sand using Crushed Curry ink and the sea using Marina Mist ink.  After each image was stamped I used the Aqua Painter to move the ink around inside the outline of each image.  I stamped the image over the sea using Dapper Denim ink and then added the dotted image using the same ink.  The palm trees were stamped using Soft Suede ink and Tranquil Tide ink and once more used the Aqua Painter to soften the images.  The watercolour paper really works well with this technique.

I stamped the greeting from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set onto the lower right hand corner of scored and folded Thick Whisper White card using Dapper Denim ink.  The image panel was trimmed and attached to Dapper Denim card before attaching to the card front.

I simply stamped the greeting from the You’ve Got This stamp set onto the inside of the card using Dapper Denim ink.

I might have gone a bit overboard with the Aqua Painter but I am happy with the finished look.  As with the card yesterday, I stamped onto a larger piece of card and trimmed it down to get the size I wanted.  I hope you will take a look at Jackie’s video and try out this technique yourself.

Bye for now,

Kris
