I loved the card samples Debbie Hughes created in the “Watercolor Masking” class from the Online Card Class – Spring Card Camp 2020 course which included the “Triangle Elements” die from Simon Says Stamp. She used the die cut as a mask while water coloring her background panel and then added the painted mask to a second card.
I CASED her card using similar colors and elements. Ironically, the lesson was on masking, and that is the only thing I did not do – lol! (I did not have the spray adhesive, and the die cut mask curled as it got wet so I water colored my background and die cut separately.)
I had so much fun painting and splattering – two techniques I rarely do – and made a few more samples:
and here is one painted in brown and gold…
This last one was done on a scrap used to blot off my black versafine ink pad when I was getting a lot of fibers on a project I was working on. I followed Bonnie’s lead and used my scrap instead of throwing it away!!
I used Kuretake GANSAI TAMBI Water Color paints (blue/green samples were No 54, 58, 62, 64, and 10; brown samples were No 47, 44, and 90). The stamped greeting was from “The Wetlands” set by Gina K Designs. The white, heat embossed greeting on the brown sample is from the “Tiny Words” stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and was cut with the Stampin’ Up “Word Window Label” punch (retired).
Thanks for checking out my card projects!
