Technique Twist-Blurred Vision Watercoloring

Welcome to Technique Twist # 14
Blurred Vision Watercoloring and
Technique Twist BLOG HOP

Grab the Badge!

The basic concept of the technique is to stamp an image with classic ink and 
then place water on the edges to make the ink bleed.

My Twist on the Technique went as follows...
First, Die cut a white panel using a Big Shot and the Apothecary Accents Framelits set. I used the Secret Garden stamp set and 3 SU markers....Island Indigo, Wisteria Wonder and Calypso Coral. Each flower had 3 petals marked up with the Indigo and Wisteria markers ( use the brush tip end of the marker to get the best coverage). Next I ran a line of Calypso Coral in each middle. I used my Aqua Painter filled with water to place a light touch of water on each of the inked lines. Once dry it was run through the Big Shot machine with the Polka Dot embossing folder.

I took a piece of the wide BURLAP RIBBON and cut off the long side to reveal the threads which I then pulled off. I tied 1 piece around the stamped panel and then attached an additional looped piece. I love the texture that this creates and matches up with the paper used for the sentiment panel.

The white embossed sentiment on Crumb Cake paper is from the HAPPY DAY stamp set. (Wet embossing instructions click here). The Top Note panel behind the white is die cut using Island Indigo card stock. The card base is using Calypso Coral paper. I kinda have a tropical feel going on, guess I wish I were in Hawaii!
