I had seen some gorgeous cards around with a watercoloured effect with the Hummingbird from A Touch of Ink stamp set. I wanted to have a go. I have to say mine didn’t turn out quite like the ones I had seen.
It’s created by heat embossing the images with White Embossing Powder. I used the Shimmery White card for the sparkle in the card. Once it has cooled then watercolour the images using the Water Painters and inkpads. To do this you can create a “well” of ink in the ink pad lid or I dabbed some ink on to a clear block and picked up the ink off that You can build up the colour as you go.
I like the effect. Maybe not the execution of my card. 🙂
I do love the effect of the edge of the card with the Stitched with Whimsy die.
