Today I have a fun card for you full of new goodies and the same fun background technique that I used on yesterdays card.
I started by stamping, coloring and die cutting my images. I used watercolor paper, Versafine Onyx black ink and Watercolor Markers by Faber Castell I really like these markers for a fun and kind of quick coloring session. All you have to do is add a little bit of color to your image and blend it out with a water brush.
Next, I did the background. I took the Inward Elements Stencil and applied a heavy amount of Diestress Oxide ink directly to the stencil. Then, I spritzed it with a water mister and put it (color down) on a piece of watercolor paper. I took a paper towel and put it on top to soak up any leftover water. I let this sit for a minute and then removed the towel and the stencil. There was still color left on the stencil, so I added a bit more water to it and put it down a second time but slightly off, to repeat the pattern.
For the sand, I did some ink smooching with a scrap piece of watercolor paper and die cut a stitched border. I glued it to my background piece and die cut a stitched rectangle for a clean finish. I stamped the speech bubble and the sentiment on it and cut it out with the coordinating die. Next, I arranged all the pieces for my scene until I had a layout I liked and I made sure to leave enough space for the second sentiment. I adhered all the pieces with foam tape and stamped the sentiment on my background. To finish up the card, I added some clear droplets.
I hope you got inspired. If you would like to see another background with the same technique, check out yesterdays post.
