Happy Birthday Watercolor Scene

In April I attended the OnStage Stampin' Up! event in Salt Lake City.  One of the swaps I received was this one from Betti & Barbra Jotzke-Torrier from Iowa.

This inspired me to try the technique.  Here are my two cards.

These are made using the Timeless Textures stamp set.  The top (green) image is colored with markers - Old Olive, Wild Wasabi, Pear Pizzazz, and Sahara Sand.  The bottom (blue) image is colored with markers - Marina Mist & Tempting Turquoise.  Watercolor paper was dampened by water in a AquaPainter and then the two images were stamped on that dampened paper.  Once the scene is dry - pencil was used to add the birds & Wink of Stella was used to make the water shimmer.  A mat of Tempting Turquoise was added and sentiment in the same ink color.  The scene was popped using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Supplies Used:

  • Stamps: Timeless Textures, Guy Greetings, Butterfly Basics
  • Embellishments: Wink of Stella, AquaPainter, Pencil
  • Cardstock: Whisper White thick, Watercolor, Tempting Turquoise
  • Inks: Tempting Turquoise
  • Markers: Tempting Turquoise, Marina Mist, Sahara Sand, Old Olive, Wild Wasabi, Pear Pizzazz
  • Adhesives: Snail, Stampin' Dimensionals
