Greetings! Thank you for visiting. Today I’m sharing another tutorial using new stamps & dies from Catherine Pooler Designs. If you missed the first two projects I created for this release, you can view them HERE and HERE. Let me show you how this card came together…
Step 1: Stamp & Emboss
Step 2: Coloring
If you don’t have reinkers, you can squish your inkpads onto an acrylic stamp block with a drop or two of water to create your own watercolor palette like I did. Then use a water brush to color in and slightly outside the embossed images.
Step 3: Splatter
Once the painting was done and had time to dry, I used a wet brush to pick up more color and flicked it over the painted panel.
Step 4: Die Cutting
Three “So Berry” sentiments were die cut in black using the “So Berry” die and glued together creating a thick and sturdy sentiment.
I also die cut a circle from vellum and trimmed the watercolor panel down to 4″ square, so it would mat nicely on a 4.25″ square card base.
Step 5: Stamping
Step 6: Put it Together
“So Berry” was glued to the vellum circle which was then secured to the center of the card front using vellum adhesive so it didn’t show through. A bit of twine was added to create a bow as well.
Step 7: Finishing Touches
I really hope you love this one as much as I do. I think this one would be easy to create with little ones since you don’t have to be very skilled to paint with this technique. What do you think? Have you tried this technique or will you try it?
Thank you again for stopping by. I hope you’ll consider subscribing. You can also see more projects in my Gallery, on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and YouTube as well. Until next time… stay crafty!
