Water Color Resist With Amazing Silhouettes

Let’s Get Started

  1. Place your Shimmery White paper in a corner of your Stamparatus and then place the tree silhouette stamp in the center. (I recommend leaving the cushion pad in the Stamparatus).
  2. Ink the bottom part of stamp in Misty Moonlight a little over halfway up then using a sponge dauber add Balmy Blue Ink. I made sure I applied some lightly over where the Misty Moonlight ended for a blend of the 2 colors. Then I applied the Balmy Blue heavy to light as I moved toward top of stamp.
  3. Now stamp this onto Shimmery White and press down hard rubbing top of Stamparatus to get all the ink transfer.
  4. Being carful not to displace the stamp, clean it off. Then making sure you paper is still in the corner, apply Versa-Mark to stamp and stamp the paper in the exact spot as before (this is why we use the Stamparatus).
  5. Using Clear Embossing powder heat emboss this imagine.
  6. Using Old Olive, Mossy Meadow, Soft Suede and Bermuda Bay Inks and the Water Painter paint in the negative space to fill in the tree. With a tissue or paper towel wipe excess ink off of clear heat emboss area. Let dry or carefully dry with a heat gun.
  7. Fold card base on score line and burnish with Bone Folder.
  8. Emboss Crumb Cake paper with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder. Adhere to card base at an angle.
  9. Adhere White Shimmer paper with your beautiful Water Color Resist work on it to card front.
  10. Fold a piece of Denim 3/8” Ribbon in half and adhere to card front.
  11. Heat Emboss your greeting on Misty Moonlight in White Embossing Powder and die cut out with Tailor Made Tag Die. Adhere to card front with Dimensionals over Ribbon.
  12. Using you tree silhouette stamp and Balmy Blue Ink, stamp off once then stamp onto Basic White card stock centering it. Now stamp greeting in Misty Moonlight Ink over the Silhouette stamp and adhere to card inside.

And now you have a beautiful card to brighten someone’s day.

Happy Stamping!
