Have you tried creating a watercolor effect on a scrapbook page or a card lately? For some reason when people say “watercolor” I get all nervous – like only highly trained artists can create a fun watercolor effect. I am also very guilty of purchasing all kinds of fancy things with the word watercolor on them in hopes that they might some day turn me into a watercolor artists! LOL! Okay I just solidified to you all that I am slightly crazy!
The Web Show
When Kelly Klapstein filmed this webshow with us a few months back I was excited! Easy watercolor effect is only a STAMP away!!! YAHOOO! Pair that up with ink, the Brother ScanNCut and some Tombow Dual Brush pens and voila! You got yourself an EASY, ANYONE can re-create card! I love it.
The base of the card is Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock. A heavy weight cardstock that can absorb a lot of different mediums without warping.
Stampin’ Up! is famous for producing high quality stamps in trendy cutting edge themes. This watercolor stamps is no exception. Flawless background everytime.
The Brother ScanNCut 2 electronic cutting machine is absolutely incredible. There are so many different things you can do with this machine. From scanning, to cutting to drawing – you name it. Kelly used the ScanNCut to create the intricate butterfly on her card. A few buttons pushed is all it took to create a layered butterfly that would haven taken HOURS to fussy cut. Also – no storage issue with endless containers of dies. Everything is electronic and therefore your collection of die cut images, shapes and words is truly ENDLESS and can grow to “infinity and beyond.” LOL
The next thing on my need to learn list – is hand lettering. Kelly created the title “dream” using Tombow Dual Brush pens. Everything on the card was also stuck down using Tombow adhesives.
Watch as Kelly walks you through each step of creating this beautiful card.
