Hello, Kraftie Friends!

This month, Club Scrap's Artist Team Challenge is to incorporate Watercolor Techniques into our projects!

I love the watercolor look, so I grabbed my Derwent Artbars and put them to work:


I used Orchard Today's Special Stencil with brown ink for the background.
I stamped and watercolored the image (Orchard Jumbo unmounted stamps), trimmed and adhered it on the card.


I stenciled the printed paper (Orchard Today's Special Stencil) with brown ink, and adhered a strip of printed paper on the bottom.
I stamped the sentiment (Orchard Greeting unmounted stamps), cut it out, and inked the edges before adhering it on panel.
I stamped 2 pears (Orchard Greeting unmounted stamps), cut them out, watercolored them and adhered them on panel.

This is another way to achieve a watercolor look...use stamps! I stamped splatters (Orchard Art Nouveau unmounted stamps) on orange panel:


I stamped basket and fruit (Orchard Jumbo unmounted stamps), cut them out and watercolored them.
I used my craft knife to cut an opening on the basket and put my fruit in there.

I stamped and inked sentiments (Orchard Greeting unmounted stamps) and text (Orchard Art Nouveau unmounted stamps).
Then, I adhered the images onto the panel.
