Today i fancied having a play so gout my Aqua painters ... love these and love making my own custom backgrounds. You can add o them put another picture over maybe or a lovely large sentiment but I let mine to show off the fantastic watery blending. This look is achieved with such ease its almost criminal.
The key is good quality water colouring paper , water based inks and aqua brushes, all available form Stampin' Up!.
I used the new Oh so Eclectic stamp set which lends its self perfectly to making custom backgrounds. I stamped using a sandwich of versa mark then basic black ink so I could then add clear embossing powder and set my design. This then resists the watercoloring without the black colour running ...perfect. This was backed onto Lemon lime card beautifully embossed using the Oh my stars embossing folder.
I had awesome fun creating this card and have a full process tutorial for you nofollow along ... have a try there is no right or wrong just good fun and easily achieved great results. Measurements and supplies are below ...and here is my video tutorial .... Happy stamping xxxxx Amanda
