It’s no secret that I love watercolour techniques, and I’ve been at it again on this card. Actually the first time I made this card I managed to get the paper too wet, by adding far too many layers of watercolour and had to start again!
Mr. Penguin was stamped in Archival Basic Black Ink onto Watercolour Paper. The new Archival inks are great for watercolour as they don’t react with water, meaning that the ink stays where you put it and doesn’t bleed. His feet and beak are coloured using a Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Write Marker.
I have mentioned before about how much I love Stampin’ Up!® for coordination; and this set is no exception as it comes bundled with matching framelits, making cutting out Mr. Penguin’s ear muffs, ice cream and bow tie a breeze!
My favourite bits of this card is the background. After I had Mr. Penguin stamped (but before he got dressed!) I masked him off with a piece of Post-it tape to protect him and created this watercolour background using Soft Sky ink. I put several layers of watercolour here, to create a textured effect. The floor is Tip Top Taupe. For extra texture I added some Wisteria Wonder splatters using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.
