Alright so let’s get on with the project! 🙂
Meet today’s card.
I used the new I Heart Art set. (I also used the Clipboard stamp set and a couple dies that were part of the CHA release from PS.)
I wanted a somewhat artsy look so I stamped the paint splatters with watercolor crayons and water. Here’s a rundown.
First, I brushed water onto the stamp.
Then I liberally brushed the watercolor crayon on top of the wet stamp to add a little color. (And I didn’t worry that the stamp was super wet. That’s part of the effect.)
I stamped it out and got something like this.
And just for kicks, here’s how the stamp looks when stamped with ink vs. a watercolor crayon and water.
And here’s how the watercolor looks close-up on the project.
That’s all I have got! Be back later, friends.
