CAS Watercolor

July 2, 2014 No Comments

I’m really fascinated by the new trend in stamping – the addition watercoloring.  I’ve begun to try my hand at this combination.  The results are fun and artsy.  And for those of us with limited drawing skills, combining watercoloring with stamping is nothing short of genius.

I’ve created a clean and simple card to day (CAS).  It’s a good entry into this idea as all you’re attempting to do is create a tiny bit of shading.  The only trick for this one is to not puddle your colored areas.  If they get too wet, blot with a paper towel and then hit it with a quick bit of heat from the heat tool.  This will keep your layer from buckling.

Let’s take a look:

Honeycomb Watercolor from theartfulinker.com

I inked the Honeycomb embossing folder with Smoky Slate and pressed it against my Whisper White layer. As I wanted a faded rather than bold outline with which to work, I applied uneven pressure as I rubbed across the embossing folder.  Then I took an Aqua Painter, Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloup and Daffodil Delight ink and painted a few of the hexagons.

Here’s a close up.  You can see how the watercoloring is darker in places and lighter in others.  You absolutely want this look.  You are not looking for a smooth wash of color.  The flow of the color adds a little texture without adding anything more to the card.

 

To accent the watercolored design, a few loose sequins from Gold Sequin Trim and a Calypso Coral hexagon, cut with the Hexagon Hive thinlit, were added.

 

Clean, simple, easy!
