Welcome to another post and this month it's all about water colors!! We all loved getting smeared with that colorful liquid oozing out of the water color bottles when we were kids, didn't we?? So it's time yet again to get that little one inside you and bring on some splash of colors with the same element! The ever lovely and vibrant... WATERCOLORS!!!
Check out all about the challenge here
and yes you can now you can link to a maximum of 10 challenges, including ours, and that I know is an awesome part!
Here's what I have for the challenge. I took up the Emboss Resist technique to be the focal element with watercoloring and here are my cards.
All of these have been done using the emboss resist in different manners and lets check them out individually to see how each one was done! And there is one super cool technique explained below. Do remember to first find it and then check it out.
This lovely rainbow card is sure one of my most loved one from the lot. I embossed the sentiment with black EP and then completely smeared the watercolor paper with water and that's where all the fun begins. As you drop each color and make some trails with your paintbrush, you'll watch the colors blending with the water and also with each other. Be as random while making the color swatches and you'll love the end result.
I did the same process as the above card with this one, but using gold EP and then colored it with a dark shade of purple and dark blue blending each with one another in the coloring process. The dark shade works wonders with the Gold colored peacock in the front. Totally loved this one!
This card is another one that I like and I like the process by which this is made too!!I have not used any Embossing in this card !! I simply stamped the lovely rose image and then colored it using the markers and now comes the fun element. I used Glossy Accents all over the image and let it dry for some time and then painted it all yellow!! (Oh between, this card has around three coatings of the yellow color to make it smooth and even).
I'm sure this one technique you will love trying out(The super cool technique *wink-wink)
I made this all GREEN card with first making all this flowers with the White embossing powder and then dabbing the complete paper in green watercolor and I loved the result!! Totally worth stamping all this flowers again and again with the versafine ink!! I just jazzed it up a little with a yellow watercolor strip and a lovely sentiment!
All done!!! Well, I focused a little more on what all things can we do with the Emboss Resist apart from the flowers! I know, they look amazing with the watercourse technique, hence I thought of taking a road less taken and focused more on the other fun elements. I hope you liked my cards as much as I do!
Do enter into the challenge here and get those paint brushes rolling to make some lovely creations!
Do drop me a comment on how you liked my cards, I would love to know your feedback!!
