Happy Tuesday everyone! It’s time for tea with Twiddler’s Nook over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers today. I had some fun with powdered watercolor and stencils over the weekend. It’s quite addicting. I could easily sit and make bunches of backgrounds at once with this technique.
Obviously, I started today’s card with the background. I took watercolor paper and laid my Miss Ink Stamps Jitters stencil over the top. Then I sprinkled powdered watercolor over the stop and spritzed it with water. I carefully removed the stencil and smooshed another piece of watercolor paper on it for the negative so I have another background the play with later on. I set those aside to dry and stamped out my images which are also from Miss Ink Stamps. They are from Big Mugs and Brewtiful. I colored them with my copics and used the scan-n-cut to cut them out.
Using the Newton’s Nook Framework dies I cut a frame and adhered vellum to the back. I heat embossed my sentiment from Big Mugs on it and lined the back of the frame with foam strips. I popped it up on the watercolor background and moved on to my images. The strip of coffee beans are adhered with liquid glue and the other images are popped up with foam squares.
For finishing touches I added glossy accents to the coffee beans that are popped up and to the gnome’s mug.
I think this is such a fun card and the colors I used represent the college team we root for at home so I know exactly who this card will be going to.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
