Small Moments

I’m thrilled to be the Guest Designer for the JUGS challenges this month.  What a talented group of ladies!  Our challenge this week is a technique challenge…water colored backgrounds.

My background has been created using Distress Stains and a water mister.  The background stamp was dabbed with three colors of Distress Stain and then lightly misted with water before stamping on my water color paper.  Then I simply dropped the three different  stains from a couple of inches above my paper to create the splats.

While that was drying, I inked the same background stamp with Versamark and clear embossed the card base.  Next, I lightly distressed the edges of the water color piece.  The butterfly is die cut from the same paper as the card base and kissed with some Wink of Stella marker.  A simple stamped sentiment, a smattering of gold sequins and done!

Here’s what I used:
Paper:  water color paper and SU! Red Rose
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black and Versamark
Stamps:  Mama Elephant Everyday Greetings and Hero Arts Fresh Cut Pebble Pattern
All the other stuff:  Big Shot Pro, Simon Says Stamp Leanna butterfly die, Picked Raspberry Distress Stain, Squeezed Lemonade Distress Stain, Dried Marigold Distress Stain, gold sequins, distressing tool, adhesives

Challenges entered:
JUGS #236 technique challenge:  water colored background

Back soon with more my friends…

  1. That background looks fantastic! Love the color combo and those added splats and sequins. The butterfly with the Wink of Stella and the clear embossed base are the perfect compliments to the watercolored background. You are an awesome GD!
