OLW 167 Just add water

OLW167  watermarked

This week’s One Layer Wednesday challenge is to add water to your design some how. I chose to spritz the stamp before printing and also to flick droplets of water onto the panel.

I masked the top of the card front so I could brayer a blue base of Memento summer sky ink. I then stamped some snowflakes in the same summer sky ink; the effect is so subtle you probably can’t see it! Before stamping the snowflakes again in Memento Paris Dusk I spritzed them with water resulting in some of the smudgy images. I then added the small snowflakes and sentiments and strategically placed some water droplets to look like they fell there by chance. I sponged the edges with Paris Dusk before removing the mask.

Sorry I was not able to leave comments last month on all the submissions; there was too much going on in my life. I look forward to your submissions this month. Have fun splashing that water around!

OLW 167 Rules

1. A one-layer card is defined as a single layer of card stock folded in half. No other layers of paper allowed.

2. Make a card using water somehow in the design or process. It could be spritzing, droplets or watercolour painting.

3. Post your card somewhere online and link back to it here using the InLinkz button on the sidebar. If linking to a blog post, please be sure to link to the specific post and not your blog’s home page.

4. The most important rule of all…HAVE FUN!
