Hi Crafters!! Card 2 taught by Jennifer McGuire, a faux water color, stamping the images in a water based ink and smooshing around with your aqua painter. I totally faked the extra layer of Water color paper on this card too! I’m so cheap. LOL I masked the lower portion of the card and then stamped my bird images. I really enjoy this technique and use it often. It gives a great water color look without much effort. Win! Win!
I stamped the Stampendous Jumbo Cardinals in Cherry Cobbler, added some Stampin’UP! real red with the aqua painter to the bodies, added some Chocolate Chip to the faces and feet, added some Mellow Moss to the leaves, added some Tim Holtz Spiced Marmalade to the beaks, and just a tiny bit of Peeled Paint to the leaves because the Mellow Moss was so washed out. The berries were done with Spiced Marmalade. Sentiment was stamped in Ranger Archival Jet Black outside and inside. Sentiments were from Studio g Kolette Hall’s With Sincere Sympathy stamp, inside was SU’s Thoughts and Prayers (praying….).
