This past weekend I reached out on Facebook for advice on how to color in the By The Dock images for today’s card.
There wasn’t a clear winner, so I decided to go in a different direction…
Directly stamp on watercolor paper and use an Aqua Painter to color them in.
My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock. Next I took a panel of Balmy Blue cardstock and embossed it using the Corrugated Embossing Folder.
I then took a panel of Watercolor Paper and stamped the images from the By The Dock Stamp Set in Stazon Black ink. I used an Aqua Painter to color in the images – Soft Suede for the dock, Crumb Cake for the boat, and very subtle Balmy Blue around them.
I then matted this on Soft Suede cardstock.
I stamped the sentiment from the By The Dock Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Soft Suede cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it. I cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies. I adhered this down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Today’s card was inspired by this week’s FabFriday Challenge.
