Hello again! Back with another post today...this time I'm playing along with Lexi Daly and Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday challenge. Lexi shows in her video how to do a fun watercolor resist technique using rubber cement...of which I have none. After thinking about it for awhile though, I thought why couldn't I use clear embossing powder as the resist...just like Jennifer McGuire showed in a video a few days ago?? So I tried it and really liked the results! I used a red, pink, orange, and yellow Zig Clean Brush marker to color a sheet of watercolor paper, and then ran water across the whole paper to blend the colors. After drying, I used Versamark and the leaf stamp from Songbirds, along with clear embossing powder to create a background. Next I used clear water to wash over the whole layer, and then used a paper towel to blot up the excess water, and as a result, a lot of the bold color....except for the color that was still trapped under the clear embossing powder! Take a look:
So technically I know this isn't the same as making cool squiggly lines like Lexi showed with the rubber cement brush, but I still think it turned out neat looking! I pop dotted the new Splits: Just A Note stamp and die cut over part of my background and then added a few enamel dots to finish off this kinda CAS card.
Make sure you check out Lexi's fun video and great cards right HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by again!! :0)
