Technique Tuesday-Simple Watercolor Resist

    Do you recognize this stamp set?  It is one of the free offerings for Sale a Bration.  The stamp is called Pedal Pusher and includes a basket and a variety of items that can be placed inside the basked.
Here is how simple this watercolor technique is.....

1. Stamp the image using Versa mark.

2. Emboss the image with white embossing powder. Make sure to rub the surface with an embossing buddy before stamping to keep the static electricity down.

3. Select 2-3 colors you would like to have in the background and using your aqua painter apply sweeps of color to the background.  Avoid lingering over the cardstock with the aqua painter as it might cause the paper to bead up a bit.

4. When dry rub a paper towel over the white image to remove excess ink.  Simple!

Notice the silver at the bottom of this card.  That is not paper it is the glitter tape that is another free item you can order during Sale a Bration.  3 colors come together with this item, white, gold and silver.

Come back tomorrow to see a WOW Christmas card.
