{Thu} Technique: Club Scrap Nov Technique Challenge

Friday, November 13, 2015

Hello, Crafty Friends!

Club Scrap has a monthly Technique Challenge...and this month is about Watercoloring!
Check Club Scrap's Blog for a video and photo tutorial! Link your projects there for a chance to win a prize!

If you watch the video or read the tutorial, they use grey ink to stamp the images and watercolor pencils + brush to color...since I haven't unpacked all my supplies yet, I have no idea where my watercolor pencils are! =)
But I have these ArtBars by Derwent that work just like the pencils...so here's what I did:

1. I stamped the medallion from Moroccan Spice Borders & Backgrounds stamp set on white cardstock and matted with a brown cardstock. I used a wet brush to pick up color from the ArtBar and watercolored the images using different colors:

2. I worked from the outside to the inside. And I also used yellow in the center of the medallions:

3. I added more stamping (Moroccan Spice Greeting stamp set), the bronze medallion and sequin (from the Deluxe Kit) with a brad. Adhere it to the card base and finish it off with a sentiment!

2. DL.ART Thankful Thursday #168: Thanksgiving...alternative Thank You


I have a second card to share:

The card was inspired by RetroSketches #189...
I used my washi tapes for the background, stamped the star (Homemade Holiday stamp set) and watercolored it, cut it out and adhered with foam tape.
I added the ribbon, sentiment (with foam tape) and glittery dots (dimensional fabric paint).


Thanks for stopping by!
