Watercolour LOVE


The watercolour trend in paper crafting has been around for sometime now and it is a trend I've not really dabbled in much until yesterday when I was inspired to join in on the current CASE Study challenge seen HERE and below...

The current muse over on CASE Study this month is the FABulous Donna Mikasa, be sure to check out Donna's blog HERE for tons more inspiration.

Here's my take on the inspiration...

I started out by stamping the LOVE & you in VersaMark ink and heat embossing it with white embossing powder. I then used a aqua painter to paint the SU! Rose Red watercolour effect over the top. I love the emboss resist technique which I also used recently on THIS card. 

I used the colour directly from my ink pad, simply squishing it together a little on the lid of the ink pad. You could also stamp it onto the edge of a cutting mat or piece of acetate. A few rhinestones finished the panel off which is adhered to the base card using foam adhesive.

This was a fun & simple card to make using a very versatile trend and technique, one that I think I will explore a little more! That's all from me today, I will be back tomorrow with more to share. Until then, thank you for stopping by :)
