Watercolor Technique @ Party Time Tuesdays

Hi everyone!!
Are you here from Party Time Tuesdays??
If not-be sure and go back so you can get in on all the designers watercolor creations.
We have weekly challenges-so get in on the fun & prizes!!
 
 These cards were done with distress ink-but it looks like watercolor doesn't it?!

I started by embossing my stamped images in white.  Using a sponge, I rubbed my color onto my cardstock in circular motion.  If you want darker around the image-like the blue example-use a paint brush to apply the ink.  Allow the ink to dry completely.  Using a water pump (or you can sprinkle with your fingers) spray some water on top.  I know this part is scary-but trust me-it will be worth it.
You need to let it sit for a minute or so-then take a paper towel and blot the water off.  It makes the most wonderful spots!!

The brown one below I didn't blot at all-left it to dry with the water on it.  The sooner you blot the water off, the lighter the water spots will be.
Once done, I simply added a punched tag with my sentiment & my card is done!

I hope you'll give this a try for yourself!!

Stacked Pumpkins Class

Fall is in the air!  The painters were excited to paint this great 16x20 Social Art-networking Design!  The did a fabulous job!  They learned how to use their paintbrushes to create thin lines as well as thick ones.  Dry-brushing technique.  The #2 round brush is perfect for the vines surrounding the bottom of the pumpkins.

 We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!

Happy Birthday with Paper Artsy stamps/masking

I was inspired by the current challenge at Paper Artsy-masking.  I've created this card using a different kind of masking. I brayed paint onto my gelli plate and this pushed the Paper Artsy flower stamps into the paint. Then I pulled the print. Wow!! The stamp pulled the paint off creating a negative space. I hightlighted the stamps with watercolor pencils. Did some additional stamping with Paper Artsy vine, then stamped The Happy Birthday sentiment from Stampin Up.  Added 3 die cut flowers on top with dimensional s to finish the card. I LOVE how it turned out!! I hope this inspires you!!!

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.
