HI All, Welcome to my blog post for Create By Me Studio. I have created a fun & vibrant card using some new products from Uniquely Creative. I love that the bunny stamp has an array of accessories to accompany this wonderful stampset. For today’s card I have used the bow and cake as the accessories for the bunny.
I love heat embossing for a resist technique and wanted to give my card background some added texture with the ink smooshing technique.
I have used WOW Embossing powders in clear regular, once heat set I add the Zig Clean and Clear Makers on a clear plastic, spritz with water and place the water colour cardstock on top. I love that these markers don’t loose any vibrancy in their pigment when water is added. Now, if you don’t like waste have another piece of cardstock handy to smoosh over the top to pick up any remaining ink.
Mount the watercolour panel on a black top folding card base.
TIP: I have stamped all images including with Versafine Onyx Black ink as this is my preferred archival ink for watercolouring.
To watercolour the bunny, cake & bow I have used the Zig markers again but this time scribbling the ink on a clear block and picking it up with an aqua brush which I then coloured in the stamped images. I fussy cut these images up with some fine tip scissors.
I have stamped the Block Sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black Ink on a strip of white cardstock and filled it in with a Gelly Roll Black pen to create a solid sentiment. This is another great way to stretching the use of this stampset.
Before I placed all the pieces together I have added a scalloped circle die cut vellum as an added layer, this acts as muted piece to make the images pop out which doesn’t get lost in the vibrant background.
To finish the card off I have added a bit of shine with clear wink of stella adding some sparkle.
I have created a a You Tube for you to watch the process unfold.
Thanks for watching and hope you enjoyed today’s card creation.
