Today I want to show you my homework for the Online Card Class Watercolor for Card Makers: Exploring Mediums.
I made a Baby card for Day 2 where Kristina Werner showed us how to do No-Line Watercoloring with Distress Inks.
At first I stamped the elephant, bunny and soap bubbles from the cute Mama Elephant «Ella & Friends» stamp set in «Pumice Stone». To get a lighter impression of the images for the no-line coloring look I stamped them on a piece of scratch paper first. Then I stamped the 2nd generation onto my Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock. I colored the elephant with «Iced Spruce» and the bunny with «Pumice Stone». For the light blue wash around the images I used my one and only ;-) Kuretake ZIG Clean Color Real Brush (036 – Light Blue).
The sentiment is from the Mama Elephant «Just Hatched» stamp set and I heat embossed it with «Liquid Platinum» embossing powder by Ranger. I used the largest «Stitched Rectangle» die from Simon Says Stamp to cut my watercolor panel. I also die-cut the ME «Femme Frames» scalloped rectangle from blue cardstock and adhered everything to a grey card base.
I embellished my card with two paper banners and a tiny blue die-cut heart.
