Hi everyone! I am sharing a card that I created a watercolor bg for.
I painted a random design on my watercolor paper with just clear water then added some color with my paintbrush and reinkers. I then spattered some ink over the watercolored bg to have some darker spots. I painted on a scrap piece of watercolor paper with my paintbrush and reinkers and then die cut and stamped my butterflies. After adhering the butterflies to the card I accented their bodies with black pearls and added iridescent sequins.

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing a card with you that I created for my grandma's birthday which is coming up soon.
I used a paintbrush wet with water to "paint" a rectangle onto watercolor paper. While the paper was wet I painted my background with blue and purple reindeers. Once the bg was dry, I stamped my poppies
with black ink. I then finished off the card by adding sequin accents and my sentiment.

Summertime has arrived so I decided to share a card I created with this super cute Summertime Rhubarb
I colored the image with copics, sponged some clouds in the background, and added stickles for some sparkle on the waves. I added a bow in the corner and a sentiment from Wish you were here
to finish off the card.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
Hello everyone and Happy Memorial Day! Today I would like to share some ideas with you on how to create some watercolored backgrounds using dye based ink and acrylic blocks. You can use ink pads or markers on your blocks to create this look. I am going to show you how I created the cards below.
Here are the supplies you need:
Start out by adding color directly to the block either by pressing an ink pad onto it or by coloring on it with your markers. I am showing both ways below.
Next, spritz water onto your inked block. How much will depend on the type of paper you use. For the ink pads I used watercolor paper and on my marker example I used Stampin UP whisper white. I generally spray it 3-4 times. Below is how the block looked after I sprayed it with water. See how the ink beads up.
Then stamp onto your paper with the block and let the ink absorb into your paper
This is a very easy technique to do and your results will vary each time you do it depending on the colors and paper you use. You can combine using markers and ink pads which is what I did on my example below.
