Stained Class and Watercoloring

Here is one of the card shares for this month clubs.

I used an aqua brush in ink to watercolor the back ground on white card stock. All you need to do is squeeze or hug you closed water based ink pad to get a little puddle of ink in the lid, then drip a bit of water from the aqua brush in the puddle, and then pick up that ink and scribble it across your card stock. The trick is using plenty of water. that will make the ink move and smear across the card stock. You can use water color paper, but remember it is more pores and will absorb more water, and making it a little difficult to smear the ink like I did in the sample. The white card stock from Stampin Up worked great for this look.

Then I embossed the flower with white embossing powder on card stock vellum and water colored the back side of the vellum giving the image a stained glass look.

You can order all your tools toys here! I cannot say enough great things about Stampin Up's Aqua Painters. You may gasp at the price... but let me tell you..... I and others have had the cheaper models and they stink! I use my Aqua Painters nearly everyday... especially in my art journal book. The bushes are long wearing, they do not leak, they distribute the right amount of water. You get a large and small tip brush. Stampin Up's Aqua brushes are Artist Quality and in my book well worth every penny spent.  TIP: Use only distilled water so bacteria will not build up.
