How are you readers ?
the sunny bright is how I've got today and what a beautiful day!
so it's my pleasure to popping and say Hi!!!
Today I have a card for sharing, because today my friends at MDUC have a new challenge with Tic-Tac-Toe board I will give my card for inspiration there and I choose :
(using) Metal - Wet embossing - Clean & simple
and here is my card,
This is a multi greeting card, that you can using on Birthday, Congratulation or just for saying hello to your friend! 4" x 6" is my fave or the note card shape, and for me this shape so easy to send by mail. On the sunny day who doesn't like water ??? it seems I need to take a bath many times a day because of the hot weather .. so, what the relations to my card .. yep! I think for water coloring background to make the sky :)
Before I'll let you know what I did for water coloring the sky, here I show you where is the metal I used. That is craft wire with black color .. I use wire to replace the balloon's thread
Do you see the cloud ? it was another fun way to put some clouds on card.
I cut a piece of scrap thick paper using Pti dies - clouds but here I used the negative to have my homemade stencil and then stencil over it using embossing paste. here I didn't cover it all smooth surface but I made some texture on the bigger cloud
you can noticed them ? different surface between the small cloud and the big one. You can do all for smooth or all for textured is up to you :)
this step is the most step I love! .. yey!! time to watering .. LoL!!!
using big brush I covered the surface with lot of water to make them so wet.
I use Faber Castell water color palette, but any water color you may have can be use also.
Blue color is mixed from blue and white , I adding more and more water on it! start out the watercolor on the cloud's edge and let it flow their own by moving the paper .. let it flow... and flow....... use a heat gun to dry faster or simply let it dry for hours. You can see the beautiful water coloring result when they are completely dry!
Please note : Using the water color paper that have minimum thickness 140 lb / 300gsm and be generous with water :)
After my background ready, I just simply place it on my base card, also made a great place to give a word .. "Hi ya!" is from Pti stamp and it was so cute don't you think ?? so perfect for saying Hi! especially on the beautiful sunny day :)
Okay, that's for me today. Thank you for stopping here and I'll see you again!
