I’ve been wanting to play around with watercolouring techniques and went for one of the more easier ones to start with – basically stamping your chosen image with Versamark and heat embossing with clear or white embossing powder, then painting with watercolour! Easy peasy!
The heat embossed area resists the watercolouring leaving you with a kind of patchwork effect, which I didn’t mind for my first attempt ;-). You’ll see that I only partially stamped the image so that I could overlay a heart shaped aperture over the watercolouring – I added some letter stickers to complete the sentiment.
I also stamped the little arrows from the same set around the sentiment to complete the card! Not a sequin or gemstone in sight, which is pretty restrained for me!
These handwritten style sentiments are fabulous because you can do all sorts of techniques, including partially stamping them if you want to combine with other techniques – I think if I wanted to go further with this card, I could turn it into a shaker card…just a thought 😉
Thanks for stopping by.
