I am back today with a quick post for you (at least I shall try to be quick)
I sat down wondering what on earth to do today, and after changing my mind about 300 times, I decided to make a card with liquid masking. Put your sunglasses on!
For me, liquid masking is much the preferred way to create a watercolour background with a single image when I don’t own the dies, and it is a little fiddly to cut masks. And it is very easy. I stamped my image using a waterproof ink and then applied a thin layer of liquid masking fluid over the image using an old paint brush. Make sure you clean it immediately afterwards or it will set :).
Once dry (you can see this by tilting the paper to the light and spotting any wet patches), I then added some water around the image and dropped different distress inks into the water, making sure to keep the pink and green separate or they will end up a nice muddy brown.
I let the panel dry and then added some more colour. I didn’t worry about harsh edges, the stamp is bold and can take it. I added some water spatters and picked them up with a dry towel just to add a little bit of variation to the pools of bright colour.
Lastly, I added a white heat embossed sentiment, a few pretty sequins and mounted the whole thing onto a black mat and then onto the card panel (A2 American). I love how the image stays black and white, and of course, I always love bright colours. They make me happy!
Enjoy your weekend, I hope you get a little crafting in.
