Thanks for hopping along with us today. For the Color Fusers March 2021 Blog Hop, I will share a card with you using the Seaside View stamp set, and the Watercoloring Technique using Water Painters.
This month’s color challenge seemed perfect for creating a beach scene or masculine card. I love the Seaside View stamp set, but had not used it yet, so it was time to ink it up and create a beach scene. The softness of this color combination was fun to work with, and worked perfectly for simple watercoloring on this card.
With summer just around the corner, a casual beach scene is a nice reminder of what’s to come! So I selected the nice relaxing chair image for my scene. And the line art made it a perfect choice to watercolor.
Fun Coloring Tools
The Water Painters in the Annual Catalog are a must have tool. The sizes work perfectly for almost any project! For today’s project, I used the narrowest tip water brush.
I started by adding a watercolor wash in Seaside Spray for the sky, and a very diluted wash of Early Espresso for the sand. After it dried, I added Early Espresso to the chair, and Gray Granite to the table. A little Seaside Spray was perfect for the glass.
To Create this project:
- Cut a Gray Granite card base 4 1/4″ x 11″, score at 5 1/2″
- Cut a Gray Granite front layer 3 3/4″ x 5″
- Die cut a large circle from Gray Granite Cardstock
- Die cut a large Stitched Circle from watercolor paper
- Cut a 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ strip of Basic White Cardstock for sentiment
On front layer, randomly stamp palm tree image in Gray Granite ink. Emboss layer with the Tasteful Textile embossing folder. Adhere to card front. Stamp chair image in Staz On ink on the Stitched Circle. Color as desired. Wrap Gray Granite Shimmer ribbon around large circle, and tie a bow around ends with Linen Thread to hold in place. Adhere circle layers together and add to card front. Stamp sentiment in Gray Granite ink, and add for card front. Embellish with Elegant Faceted Gems as desired.
