A quick post as I should be getting ready to go away. Why do I always forget how much there is to do before you go?
The challenge at AAA Cards is 'Watercolours'.
Here is my card:
I made this by stamping and embossing the swirls in clear powder. The I sprinkled Brushos on and wet it with a spray bottle. I got it really wet so the ink spread about and pooled. Then the trick is to walk away and leave well alone! I used green and yellow crystals and the blue comes out of the green.
When it was dry I ironed off the embossing powder which just leaves the swirls. I used copier paper above and below to soak up the embossing.
To give credit the idea is a combinantion of several I saw on You Tube. One is here and I can't find the other. Oh, you can waste a lot of time on here, some amazing ideas, I just need to remember them. I've tried this one a couple of times and it works really well.
I'm not sure how well you can see but it gives a really cool effect and no-one knows how you did it!
I didn't want to cover up any of the swirls so I just added a simple sentiment.
I hope to get a chance to visit some of the fabulous entries, I love looking at them but must get organised first.
