Hi everyone. Time for the new April Sketch Challenge at Happy Little Stampers. Kylie has once again come up with a wonderful sketch that can be used for any style of card. Hope you'll play along! :)
I had fun experimenting with my latest crafty purchase --- liquid watercolour concentrate. There are lots of different ways to use the watercolour concentrate. Today I squirted it directly onto my craft sheet (just like I did with re-inkers when I made this video on the Saturated Watercolouring Technique), then I squirted Frost Pearl paint on top, misted all over with water and plopped my piece of watercolour paper on top, pressing down and holding for a few minutes so it would absorb the colour. I then picked up the piece and dipped it again for any areas that weren't covered. I made four background pieces, using one on my card today and saving the rest for another time. :) The two colours I used were Magenta and Orange ... aren't they awesome together??!! And I love the streaks of the frost paint.
I simply placed the panel behind a rectangle aperture on my card front. Very simple and clean design that get's a lot of impact from the vibrant watercoloured panel. I die-cut 'thanks' three times from white card stock and glued them together to make a thick die-cut. Then I coated it (twice) with Clear Wink of Stella to give it a little sparkle (not able to capture the sparkle with my camera).
I hope you'll join us for our fun and easy April Sketch Challenge at Happy Little Stampers. See you in the gallery! :)
