Watermarked in bluePosted: August 14, 2013 Filed under: CAS, Queen Anne's Lace, Watercolour 14 Comments
You may know blue is a favourite colour of mine as is Queen Anne’s Lace a favourite flower and watercolour a favourite technique. So when I saw this weeks Case this sketch I decided to use all three favourites to complete the challenge.
The panel and the card base are both watercolour paper (details below). I sponged the panel with nautical blue ink then painted the stamp with water and stamped it onto the sponging. The image created by “water stamping” is quite subtle and in the background. I then stamped in nautical blue, once the whole stamp as well as a few partial impressions. The final touches were some water droplets and some ink droplets.
Stamps: Queen Anne’s Lace, Wishes (PB)
Inks: Memento Nautical Blue (Tsukineko)
Cardstock: Fabriano Hot pressed 25%cotton watercolour paper
BEAUTIFUL blue watercolor! I usually add silhouettes in black but I like them in blue. I’ll have to soon try that. TFS 🙂
So lovely, like a night sky. Well done!
This is gorgoues! Thanks so much for sharing your process!
beautiful card, lovely effect with the way that you did this one. TFS
Lovely card Heather!!
I have my supplies ready to try this. Thanks.
Gorgeous card, lovely waterstamping! Have to try this!!
Wow, I don’t know how you did it, but such an interesting perspective — like lying on the ground and looking up at the sky. So pretty.
Gorgeous!!! LOVE the blues…so pretty and soothing! By coincidence, I was sponging yesterday and thinking of you the whole time. You’ve got this technique down pat, and my own efforts are a bit iffy…but it’s a fun and satisfying process nevertheless. Thanks for inspiring me!!!
This is just lovely!! Gorgeous!
Congrats on a beautiful card.
No question this was another winning card, Heather! Congratulations on the honor from CTS!!
Your cards are so beautiful and I get such inspiration from them. I particularly love your collages and have tried a few. Thanks for sharing. I have a blog if you would like to visit some time. sierrastampin.blogspot.com.
