3 Techniques: Watercolor Smooshing Technique ,Baby Wipe Mask Technique, and Heat Embossing. . .
Today I have a triple technique card to share with you.
Before I get started....I must confess that some of the supplies I used on this card are not Stampin' Up! ....but don't shoot me....sometimes a girl has to play with other toys- LOL!
Ok back to my card.
The first technique was what I call Watercolor Smooshing.
I took three ink pads, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise and Sweet Sugarplum and smooshed some color down onto my craft mat. Next I spritzed the mat with water...quite a bit maybe ten sprays. I then floated the color from the mat onto my card stock by dipping the card stock repeatedly to pick up the colors.
Once this dried completely ( I used heat tool cause I am not a patient gal) I went on with my second technique.
The second technique is what I call Baby Wipe Masking.
I applied a plastic mask ( I chose chicken wire design) and then daubed a babywipe over the openings in the mask. Where the babywipe hits it removes some of the color leaving the mask pattern.
How cool is this!
Finally I added heat embossing as my final technique and stamped the greeting in versamark and heat embossed using black embossing powder.
I decided to grab my Sweet Sugarplum marker and fill in the larger outlined letters on the stamp.
I thought the card needed a little something so I grabbed my bow punch and added a black bow!
