Watercolour Stamping

August 7, 2018

Today’s card also uses the layout on Page 151 of the Annual Catalogue but this time I am using the High Tide stamp set.  I embossed Pacific Point card using the Seaside Embossing Folder and attached it to the left hand side of Very Vanilla card before attaching to scored and folded Pacific Point card.  I stamped “happy birthday” from the Perennial Birthday stamp set onto the bottom of a piece of Watercolour Paper using Night of Navy ink.  I stamped the sand image from the High Tide stamp set above the greeting (leaving room for my Linen Thread) using Crumb Cake ink.  I re-inked the sand image using Soft Suede ink and stamped over the top of the Crumb Cake image.  I used an Aqua Painter to spread the colours inside the stamped image.  I stamped the first image for the lighthouse using Gray Granite ink and the second image using Night of Navy ink.  I stamped the “sea” image from the High Tide stamp set above the sand using Night of Navy ink.  I used an Aqua Painter to spread the image and added some ink from the lid of the Night of Navy ink pad to create the finished look.  I used an Aqua Painter and the ink in the lid of the Pacific Point stamp pad to colour above the “sea” and create some sky.  I stamped the flying bird image from the High Tide stamp set around the Lighthouse using Night of Navy ink.  I love the way that the images have bled a little because the paper was still slightly damp.  I stamped the grass image using Mossy Meadow ink.  I wrapped the gap which I left between the “happy birthday” and my lighthouse scene with some Linen Thread.  The image panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals.

Since I had so much fun creating the stamped watercolour scene for the card front, I decided to create another panel for the inside of the card.  I once more stamped the sand image across the bottom of a piece of Watercolour Paper using both Crumb Cake and Soft Suede ink.  I used the Aqua Painter to move the ink around inside the stamped image.  I used the Aqua Painter and the ink in the lid of the Night of Navy ink pad to create some ocean and the ink in the lid of the Pacific Point ink pad to create the sky.  I stamped the water birds using Night of Navy ink and the grass using Mossy Meadow ink.  The panel is attached to the bottom of Very Vanilla card.

This card was so much fun to create and made me feel like a real artist – maybe those 4 years of studying Art in High School did pay off!  I think I will have to play with more images using my stamps, ink pads and an Aqua Painter on Watercolour Paper.

I’d love to hear what you think.

Bye for now,

Kris
