Hope you had a lovely Christmas..
I did and I am looking forward to a very relaxing week off.
Over the Thanksgiving break I FINALLY got to go and have a play with Day 2 of the Watercolouring class I bought forever ago over at OCC.
This part of Day 2 was all about using background stamps with watercolour and was taught by Debby Hughes.
This is already one of my fave techniques. Ink up the stamp, spritz with water, lay the paper on top..hope you get a decent impression!!
I made x4 backgrounds, using the same stamp (Hero Arts CG504), here is what I got..
The blue background got contaminated by the red ink, because I didn't clean my stamp properly, but I like it..
I decided to make x4 cards and make them a thank you set for a friend.
The first x2 use the entire background, as seen in the main card and this card -
The next x2 cards had a shape die-cut out of the background I created. I went for stars and hearts.
Supplies for these 2 cards - Lawn Fawn Scripty Thanks die, Sizzix Heart dies, xCut Star dies, Nuvo drops, Tim Holtz Distress Markers.
They were fun to make and it was good to start with the backgrounds giving me some food for thought.
Part 2 tomorrow...
