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!!!
