Adventure Is Calling
Welcome back to the blog! Today's card is a fun one using the Watercolor Background Stamp. This stamp is so fun and unique, in that you can turn it, layer it, and do several fun techniques with it to get a totally new look each time! I want to share with you how I used it on this card along with the Powdered Elements to make a watercolor background with a touch of copper shimmer!
I took the Watercolor Background Stamp and, using my Misti, inked it up with a little Sea Surface Ink. I then took a paintbrush and sprinkled on some of the Penny Powdered Elements before spritzing it with some Squeaky Clean. Once the color and powder were running together from the liquid, I stamped it onto my cardstock. It left a gorgeous watercolor effect with some of that Copper shimmer swirling inside!
I also layered on some darker blue ink by appyling it to the stamp and again spritzing it with the Squeaky Clean, and then stamping on top of the color that was already there. I applied just a very light layer of this deeper blue so that it wouldnt cover up the Sea Surface Ink that I already stamped.
For the sentiment, I grabbed a piece of vellum and cut it into a large banner shape. Then, using my Brutus Monroe Embossing Ink, I stamped the "Adventure Is Calling" sentiment from the Rock On Stamp Set and embossed it in copper using the Penny Embossing Powder. I then adhered it to the watercolor panel before mounting it to a black cardstock card base.
This is just one fun way that you can use the Watercolor Background stamp! There are so many possibilites with this stamp that I am sure I'll be using it often in my own crafting.
Thanks for stopping by today! I've included links below to the products I used here on this card.
Until next time,
