CTC396 – A little bit of watercolouring

It’s Sunday evening again and thank goodness that this week hasn’t been as eventful as last week. Let’s hope I don’t speak too soon. Luckily, I was prepared well in advance for last week’s blog hop as we had no power for nearly a day and a half which was over the time that the hop went live. Anyone would think it was still winter here in the Adelaide Hills based on the weather lately. We had a quick glimpse of summer for a few days then back to the cold, wet and windy weather.

This week we are casing a watercolouring project and I decided to case the top left card in the image below which is on page 90 of the Annual Catalogue using the Sun Prints Suite.

I started with some Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper and stamped images from the Botanical Layers stamp set in Versamark before heat embossing it with white embossing powder. I then used the wide Water Painter with some Bermuda Bay ink across the page. I also splattered some Bermuda Bay ink onto it. Before adhering this to a Bermuda Bay card base, I distress the edges a little. The sentiment comes from the Charming Sentiments stamp set and was cut out using the coordinating Sentiment Silhouettes Dies. I added a little ribbon behind the sentiment and some Rhinestones to finish the card off.

After I finished this card, I thought I’d make another one using the same technique of the heat embossing on watercolour paper. For this card I used the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and rather than doing a watercolour wash over the whole piece, I decided to watercolour using the different colours for each section of the card.

We have more of our design team in the blog hop this week seeing as they aren’t at the demonstrator event like last week. Next up on the hop is the amazing Julia Quinn with her watercolouring project.
