Using Aqua Pigments to Create a Non-Traditional Snowy Background

Using Aqua Pigments to Create a Non-Traditional Snowy Background

Hello everyone!  Daniel here today with a wintry card and a non-traditional color pallette made with Aqua Pigments.  If you would like to see the techniques I used to create this card, you can catch the live video on replay on my channel: delandartie.  

For this card, I taped a piece of Aqua Pigments Paper down to my workspace using painters tape and spritzed it with water to lightly wet the surface.  Using a regular watercolor paint brush, I began to layer and dry Aqua Pigments on the paper.  I used Coral, Fuchsia, Magenta, and Blue-Green darkened with a few drops of Black.  

After each layer, I sprayed drops of water over the cardstock and let them dry slightly, creating water markings throughout the pigments. Then I dried the pigments with a heat tool and layered on another color.  

I dried the cardstock thoroughly with my heat tool and trimmed it down to a smaller panel. I stamped a snowman from the Brutus Monroe Snow Friends Stamp Set using Raven Detail Ink onto some Bristol Smooth Cardstock.  Using the Blue-Green and the Fuchsia Aqua Pigments, I colored in the snowman. I finished off his nose with some Orange Aqua Pigment.  

I fussy cut him out and popped him up on some foam tape.  Then I stamped the sentiment from the same Snow Friends Stamp Set and glued down the background panel onto the card base using Brutus Monroe All-purpose Craft Glue.  

Thank you for hanging out with me today. I'd love to hear from you.  What do you think of a Fuchsia and Blue-green pallette for a snow scene?  Let me know in the comments below.  

Go get some Aqua Pigments now and make your own beautiful background. 

Big hugs to you all!
