Today I water colored using an acrylic block and distressed ink. I have never used this technique before where you stamp the distressed ink on the block, spritz it with a little bit of water and paint with a brush. I really did not know how I would color this image so it was stamped on regular white cardstock. The plan to use watercolor came after so I had to be careful not to over soak the paper.
I cleaned up and decided to put my white tulip fabric paint away someplace new last weekend. I normally use it to do snow or white fur. I have looked under, in and around everywhere...for the life of me cannot find it! It never pays to clean up. lol A disorganized mess works better for me I guess. I really wanted to make the fur part stand out on the card so I had to come up with another plan. After digging around I came across some flock I have had for years and rarely use. I actually like the results!
What is Christmas without some sparkle right? I covered the hat and bear with ripped towel paper and sprayed Heidi Swapp White Color Shine to give it a hint of sparkling sheen to the sky. For the finishing touches after the card dried, I used my all time favorite Signo white pen to put a hint of snow falling in the sky.
Yesterday was World Card Making day....the day that kick starts making holiday cards for the season. I do not have anything to show for that day however I did craft. I was trying to learn a new technique.
I hope you have started making your Holiday cards as it is only 8-9 weeks before everyone starts mailing them!
Thank you for stopping by!
