Oh my goodness, I am so honoured to be chosen as one of the Pootler’s Design Team for June! The lovely Sam asks the team each month to volunteer to be a part of the Design Team, I will often put my name forward… but this month I had completely forgotten about it. So, a few weeks ago I get home from work to find a (rather large) envelope, I spotted Sam’s details on the front and found this great stamp set…. and then got really confused as to why I was being sent stamps!
This stamp set just sings ‘Watercolour’ but for my first card I didn’t want to watercolour the image… but the watercolour idea got stuck in my head, and turned into this watercolour / Ink-Smooshing number!
The bottom right hand colour is coloured in two colours of ink; Tranquil Tide and Emerald Envy. Ink-Smooshing is so simple, and great for those who love a bit of watercolour but don’t like the mess! I generally use my largest clear block as a sort of palate, I add water to the ink and then pick the ink/water mixture up using a piece of Window Sheet (or the backing from some stamps!). This window sheet becomes a sort of paint brush with which you apply the ink to the paper. I applied Tranquil Tide first, and dried it with my heat tool before adding a layer of Emerald Envy.
The card is completed with the leaves stamped a couple of times in Basic Black, and the sentiment from Remarkable You, and then a trio of Enamel Shapes in Rose Red for a pop of pink!
I hope you love this card as much as I do, don’t forget to check out Sam’s blog to see the other Design Team members wonderful creations too.
