Technique Tuesday – Watercolor Ray of Sunshine!!!

Happy Tuesday!!!! That means I have a fabulous technique to share with you today and it includes the best stamp set ever – Work of Art!!! You probably could have guessed that one, right? 😉

Work of Art Sunshine, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Supplies Needed: Work of Art Stamp Set, Watercolor Paper, Spritzer with Water, Island Indigo Ink, Daffodil Delight Ink, Pear Pizzaz Ink, Coastal Cabana Ink, and Soft Sky Ink, Sequins, Itty Bitty Punch Pack

Starting with a piece of Watercolor Paper measuring 3-3/4″ x 5″, you will stamp the long image from the Work of Art Stamp Set 2-3 times in each color. I started straight up and down with Island Indigo, then Coastal Cabana, Soft Sky, Daffodil Delight, and Pear Pizzazz. As you go along, you will want to angle them like rays of sunshine! Then you will need to place the paper into a box or on a towel and spritz ALL OVER! I really mean all over. The colors will start to run and bleed and that’s a good thing. The piece of paper will also start to curl and that’s okay! This will take some time to dry or you can use your Heat Tool! Once it is completely dry, it is time to assemble! I added it to a piece of Daffodil Delight (4″ x 5-1/4″) and then my card base of Island Indigo (4-1/4″ x 11″). I stamped the Thanks three times from the Lots of Thanks Stamp Set! I added a few Daffodil Delight flowers from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack and some Gold Sequins (adhering them with Mini Glue Dots). Of course when working with watercolor, no two will come out alike so don’t worry if your’s doesn’t look exactly like mine.
