Online Card Class - Day 4 - For these lessons we dug out our watercolors. Actually, we had some choices in what we wanted to use for watercoloring supplies. I used my Windsor Newton watercolor paints for some and Distress Inks for others. All the cards were made with watercolor paper.
Kristina taught watercolor blending skills. We created a background and then diecut words from it and mounted over white cardstock.
The letters that were popped out from card one found a new home on black cardstock along with some gold peel-off stickers.
Laura demonstrated using Distress inks on acrylic blocks to smoosh color bands onto watercolor paper. I added text pre-printed on vellum.
Next, we were invited to apply these same colors in a circle on a sandwich bag, spritz with water and smoosh the card onto it. A white diecut medallion was combined with a pre-stamped sentiment strip.
We then did the same technique using a non-stick craft sheet for inking.
Laura next showed how to create a resist background using Versamark ink and clear embossing powder. The craft sheet smoosh technique was used for the inking. I diecut the sentiment 3 times from black and once from white and glued them in a stack for the card front.
When I was done making these backgrounds, I continued to spritz the craft sheet with water and dab a cardstock into it for a bonus background. This one also got a diecut medallion and a pre-printed vellum.
Debby used watercolors to paint big dots, letting them barely touch to allow the colors to bleed. She shared the concept of turning them into balloons with a figure to hold the strings. I didn't have a figure to stamp so I hand-drew the little cat. I also created this sentiment with three black and one white diecuts stacked up.
Since I didn't stay up till after midnight creating these, I get to actually post them on the day they were made.
