This month my technique class projects focus on use of the Aquapainter and so we did some watercoloring for this first project with the help of some watercolor crayons. I guess I've got Christmas on the brain because all three cards are for Christmas. I think this year I've designed more unique Christmas cards than ever! These might be the last of the season.
Stamps: Baby Jesus is Born
Inks: Stazon Black, Not Quite Navy
Papers: Holiday Treasures DS Paper, Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Watercolor Paper
Accessories: Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon, watercolor crayons, aquapainter
For this project we used the Aquapainter to we some mulberry paper before pulling it appart to get the fuzzy edges.
Stamps: Winter Post, Warm Words
Inks: Ridinghood Red, Baja Breeze
Papers: Ski Slope DS Paper, White Mulberry Paper, Ridinghood Red, White
Accessories: Clear Stardust Glitter pen, aquapainter (to wet paper and tear)
Note: I couldn't resist adding some sparkle to this one on the patterned paper and the snowflake stamped image
This last card used the Painted Pearls technique, I have several cards using this technique on my blog already, though I haven't used it in a while. I added some sparkle to the skaters by applying pearlex with an Aquapainter filled with Future Floor Wax.
Stamps: Winter Post, Sincere Salutations
Inks: Chocolate Chip
Papers: Holiday Treasures DS Paper, Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Naturals Ivory
Accessories: Felt Stitched Ribbon, Pearlex (Russet, Gold), aquapainter, floorwax
Note: Sparkle in the pearlex can be seen in picture below
