Hello and welcome to Altenew’s July 2019 Stencil Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing brand new Watercolor Brush Marker Refills. If you arrived here from the talented blog, Janette Kausen, then you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog.
Take a look at my watercolor embroidery canvas:
I love it when experiments go the right way, LOL! When the Tropical Fiesta Watercolor Brush Marker Refills showed up at my door, I wasn’t sure what to do with them. I tossed many ideas around and thought they weren’t out of the box enough. That’s when a light bulb went off, and I thought would they look good on fabric.
So, I tried, and I was excited when it went right!
Here’s how I created this colorful watercolor embroidery canvas:
Place a piece of linen-cotton canvas fabric on a glass mat.
Use a glass mat just in case the water or the ink didn’t absorb in the fabric. It would be easy to clean up.
Once the water on the fabric, start adding ink to the material.
Add as much color or different color as you desire. I used four different colors: Frest Lemon, Sunkissed, Turquoise, and Crimson.
Let the color take their time and move before you pick up the fabric.
Once you have the desired look, pick up the piece of fabric carefully; remember the mat is glass, so the liquid is sitting right on top of that glass.
Clean off the residue and place the piece of fabric back on the glass mat. Hoop it so it can dry. I used a heat tool because I was impatient.
Once the fabric dries, cut away the excess material, and now you’re ready to add a sentiment.
Before that could happen, I realized that I loved the backside of the fabric because it was a bit more subdued. So I changed it.
Now its time to add the sentiment.
Die-cut the word blessed from the Mega Blessed Die Set and adhere it to the front of the fabric.
Beautiful, easy, and fun to create. It’s a fantastic wall hanging home decor piece.
