Hope you had a great weekend! I can’t believe it is March already and I have another no-line water coloring card to share with you. The last project I did using no-line water coloring technique was almost a month ago in early February.
I am using Mama Elephant Carnival Cupcakes clear stamp for this card, so, here goes.
I stamped the cupcake holder, cupcake icing and the bear using All My Memories Paper Stain - Caramel. This is the first time I am using this paper stain to stamp as this is the lightest shade I have and I thought of trying it out. Previously, I used Antique Linen Distress Inkpad for my earlier no-line water coloring project.
I used Fabriano cold press Watercolor paper which is 140 lbs. It has a very good texture and the quality is superb considering the price. The only draw back I have of this paper is that it is not totally white. It is off white but I am perfectly ok with the shade as I think it will work very well for watercolor projects.
Using distress markers, I did all the water coloring by applying the colors on my acrylic block and picking the colors with a fine wet brush.
For the background, I wet the area which I want to transfer color to it with a thick paint brush. I picked up the colors I wanted for the background with a wet paint brush and just gently dab it around and let the color spread naturally.
I heat set it to dry the whole image and when that was done, I added some sequins, adhering to the image using Ranger Glossy Accent.
I adhered to a baby blue cardstock leaving a small border around it. Next, I tied a ribbon using natural fibre twine and finally, adhered the whole image tag to the card base using foam tape.
I hope you like this card.
I really like this clear stamp set from Mama Elephant as it comes with different animals of different size for you to play around with. I can’t wait to use it for my next project. Stay tune!
