I have been playing with the Sale-A-Bration set By The Bay. Have you noticed it in the catalogue? It hasn’t had much of a showing on blogs and Pinterest that I have seen. This is actually the first card I made with it although I shared a card in the last post. This one I have coloured with the Watercolour Pencils.
Firstly, you need to stamp on Shimmery White card or Watercolor Card with Stazon Ink when watercolouring. I prefer the Shimmery White as it doesn’t have the texture on it.
Take your time when colouring. Lightly colour an area and wash over it lightly with the Aquapainter to smooth out the colours then let it dry. It doesn’t take too long to dry but once it is then you can go back and add some more colour to intensify the area or add highlights.
I have to say I am no expert at colouring and I am learning a lot as I go. Picking what colours to use is always hard. I coloured most of it and left the wall and the path/wall to last as I wasn’t sure what colour to use. The path was Ok in the grey but I am not really happy with the wall. I did try lifting some colour off but was starting to mess it up SO … you just have to go with what you have. Right?? 🙂
For the sentiment I stamped that on white card and cut it with one of the dies in the Bottles and Bubbles Framelits and cut a larger one in black with the larger die. I think I have to use these dies a little more often for these small sentiments. They are just the right size. I coloured a Rhinestone with a Black Sharpie as I wanted a black embellishment.
To put the card together I cut the Thick Whisper White in Portrait orientation. So cut down the length on the narrow side (10.5cm or 4 1/4″). Score at the half way point on the long side (14.8cm or 5 1/4′). Cut off 3cm or 1 1/4″ on the bottom edge. On the inside of the card I stamped the seagulls twice across the bottom.
