Better With You No Line Watercoloring

Wow!!  What a quick and easy FUN technique!  I finally tried the “no line watercoloring” and oh, my–I loved it!!  I used the Better With You Clear Stamp Set to create this adorable little birdie card.

I stamped off the little bird and the decorative element stamps on Watercolor Paper in Crumb Cake, then colored the bird with Balmy Blue, Pear Pizzazz, Cajun Craze, So Saffron, Soft Suede and Early Espresso.  I used ink from the Stampin’ Ink Pads and the medium Aqua Painter Brush.

The Sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso.  The base is the Tea Room Designer Series Paper.  And Linen Thread provides just the right finishing touch!

Such a fun technique with such an adorable stamp set!  The variety of sentiments stamps makes it even more versatile.

Try it for yourself, or just contact me and I’ll give you more tips and tricks for this card and technique.

I ALWAYS look forward to hearing from you!!

The Blessed and Happy Stamper,

Dixie

That’s right.  It’s FREE with any $50 Product Order!  This can help you make such beautiful projects, and it’s so versatile!

 

For this card, I used Powder Pink Stampin’ Ink and Cardstock.  I inked the Country Floral Embossing Folder with Powder Pink Stampin’ Ink, then placed a piece Whisper White Cardstock in the Folder and ran it through the Big Shot.  I loved the subtle elegance!  I ran a piece of the Powder Pink Cardstock through the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the base, then punched out a piece of it from the center using the Story Label Punch, a Sale-A-Bration Coordination Item available for purchase.  The sentiment is from the Part of My Story Cling Stamp Set  and is also a Sale-A-Bration Item FREE with any $50 Product Order.

I just couldn’t resist pairing this folder with a piece of the Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper Sale-A-Bration Item.  I used a piece of Lemon Lime Twist (retiring soon!) Cardstock and the Tea Room Ribbon Combo Pack for the ribbon.  An elegant touch!

I love working with Stampin’ Up’s Vellum Cardstock, so I ran it through the Country Floral Embossing Folder, then used Stampin’ Blends to add touches of color to accent some of the elements.  The sentiment is from the Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set found in the Occasions Catalog. The Calypso Coral Twine is from a past Paper Pumpkin Kit.
