Hello everyone!! Its Feature Week on the YNS blog this week and the theme is Summer Fun!! I LOVE the summer!! It is the best time of the year for me. The weather is fantastic and I get to stay outside and grill!! Perfect for me!!
This week the Design Team has been challenged to create a project that is all about summer fun. I wanted to used the Zero Calories stamp but wasn’t sure what to do. As I was sitting at my desk, a new youtube video popped up in my cue and it was Nichol sharing how she created a watercolor card using a set of popsicles. I couldn’t believe it. I watched it and said yes, she gave me an idea.
Take a look:
Inside of creating a card, I decided to create a postcard that could go right in the mail. I too decided to watercolor my popsicles. I used Tombow Dual Brush Markers Primary and Brights to watercolor. I’ve never used them in this way before so this was fun.
I simple stamped the images with Versamark ink and covered them with Clearsnap Colorbox® white embossing powder.
Then I heat set it.
After that was set, I used Tombow’s Dual Brush Markers to watercolor the popsicles.
Then I let the postcard air dried before attaching the happy die cut. I adhered that die cut with liquid glue.
Then I realized I didn’t watercolor the sticks, so I went back in and watercolored around the die cut.
I added the gumdrops and that was that.
This postcard is on it way to a friend. I hope she likes it.
What do you think? Would you give this technique a try? I would love to hear from you below.
I’m all entering Virginia’s View Challenge!
Thanks for stopping by!
