Hey there, ‘Fetti Fans!
It’s Stacey here with a “gotta wear shades” bright and sunny card using some happy Reverse Confetti goodies for this week’s WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS post!
So, how did I create that BRIGHT watercolored background?!
First, grab 2-3 coordinating colors of ink pads. I used Ranger Distress Inks Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Festive Berries. Stamp the distress pads directly on to a craft mat using very little bold color and more of the more subtle color, then spritz liberally with water.
Next, press (and smear to desired effect) a piece of watercolor paper over your inked and water-spritzed craft mat.
Reveal the beauty and keep pressing into color until desired color and boldness is achieved.
To speed up the drying process, you can blot with a paper towel or use a heat tool.
It’s that simple! Hope you’ll give it a try!
To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment near the bottom of the main panel, attached a couple of waves and a tag, and detailed with a bow and a few sequin sprinkles!
Creating your own watercolored background is sure to put a SMILE on your face!
