High Tide Watercolor Wash Card
Original Post Date – March 2017
So, today and tomorrow I am going to share two projects that feature the Watercolor Wash Technique. One of the challenges for this months Card Candy Challenge was to COLOR IT! So this is just one way you could achieve that.
This card could also be an example of FRAMED CREATION! The stamped lighthouse gets framed in the die cut outs. And the way I create the watercolor wash panel, also creates a framed effect.
Have you played in the Card Candy Challenge yet this month? Learn all about the April Paper Craft Stash! Challenge. You still have time to craft, snap a photo and email me before the end of the month drawing!
Watercolor Wash Technique: Use your Aqua Painter, filled with water. Grab ink off the cover or your ink pad, or a couple of drops of re-inker, and paint a background.
High Tide Watercolor Wash Card Stampin’ Show & Tell Demonstration
Okay, so here is a demonstration of me putting the card together, step by step. Enjoy the presentation, and then give it a try yourself. Be sure to see how I extend the die cut to frame the top and bottom of the lighthouse, and how I split the doily!
Materials & Measures:
- Marina Mist 11 x 4 ¼ (score at 5 ½)
- Crumb Cake 5 ¼ x 4
- Watercolor Paper 5 x 3 ¾
- Very Vanilla 3 x 5 (framelit)
- Marina Mist 3 x 5 (framelit / cut in half to spread and back very vanilla)
- Very Vanilla 4 x 5 ¼ (inside)
- Very Vanilla Envelope
Tips & Tricks:
- Watercolor wash works best on Water Color Paper.
- But if you are careful, to not use too much water, you could have success with our THICK cardstock or the Shimmery White cardstock as well.
- If you use your ink pad lid as your ink pallet, remember to dry off the lid before you close it. You don’t want to dilute your ink pad with that excess water.
Quick List of Supplies:
** Note the Marina Mist color has been retired. Also this set of dies, Lots of Labels is also retired.
