Now for my project. I'm excited to show you a card I made with the some of the newest Sheena stamp sets, A Little Bit Festive (they will be available in just a few days)!
I stamped the images on white card stock, colored them in with Spectrum Noir Markers and then I decided to use my ink refills as paint. Buy just dropping some ink on a stamping block or an empty CD case and adding some water, you can make your own watercolor creation!
I also dry embossed the card stock before I started adding my paint. I simply dipped the brush in water, swirled it around on my palette with a touch of the ink and started painting at the top in a circular motion. I added less and less ink as I went down the page to give it a little bit of a gradient effect.
I made sure to put a scrap piece of paper underneath it so nothing else got too messy!
I let it dry a little while and then I put a heavy book on it, so it would dry flat. The water makes card stock curl, so don't forget this step!
Once it was dry, I took some brown ink and rubbed it onto the raised portions of the card and adhered the bird with some adhesive dots. For a finishing touch, I spritzed some white spray mist onto it!
Thanks for stopping by today!
