I’m trying a new challenge this week with Papertrey Ink’s Make It Monday challenge. This week’s project included a fun technique using a watercolor resist. There is a great tutorial by Lexi Daly that shows how to combine watercolor and rubber cement to get a fun swirled effect on your paper. I used an ink pad and an aqua painter to achieve my watercolor base.
The technique takes a bit of time as Lexi mentions, but it is fun and the results are nice. Here is my original piece with my items cut out. I’m sorry but I was excited to put my card together and forgot to take a ‘before’ picture.
- Paper: Black and White All Over–Papertrey Ink, black cardstock and watercolor paper
- Diecuts: Botanical Builder–Stampin’ Up
- Sentiment: February Paper Pumpkin– SU
- Embellishments: Rinestones–Recollections
- Ink Colors: Wisteria Wonder, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mombo–SU
I do not have a source for the kite. I looked through several sites and could not find it. My guess would be Papertrey ink, but it may no longer be available. In my search however, I did find some cute kite dies that are available.
This was a fun challenge and I will definitely try this watercolor resist technique again.
I appreciate comments and would love to hear from you. I’m especially curious about the vertical sentiment. Is it to distracting slanted with the vertical lines behind?
Thanks for visiting!
