Brushless Watercolor & Floral Card Tutorial

Well hi there!
So glad to see you here again...
I am taking online Tim Holtz class on Creative Chemistry. Very slowly...because I am still on day 2... Ha-ha!
I decided to make a project one or two with new techniques I'll learn.
Here is my Brushless Watercolor Card...
It is very easy to make... I will show it to you. Lets go!
For this project you are going to need: papers (cardstock & watercolor), die cut of Tim Holts frame, print or stamp of saying...
With the papers... I am not going to give you sizes, but I will explane how it works.
Decide which stamp are you going to use, now cut matching size from watercolor paper (I like to leave some space around image, if something you can cut it down). From here the size of watercolor paper is  your base. Now couple layers are going to create a mat for your brushless watercolored image (cream & blue on the picture). Blue ging to be the first mat, so the size of it slightly larger about 0.5 inch on both sides. For example, if your watercolor paper is 4 by 6 inches, blue would be 4.5 by 6.5 inches. Next cream wll be 5 by 7 inches... Now you can cut base of your card. Fold piece of paper in half and cut to 5.5 by 7.5. Depending on horizontal or vertical image size of the card would be 5.5 by 15 inches ( or 7.5 by 11 inches)... Hopefully I explained myself proper...

And yes, I have two more colored mats. Those are for inside card mat for you journaling. The only difference  is that 1st is cream and 2nd is blue (see sizes above). It is easier to wright on lighter color paper...
With tools you are going to need: disstress inks (any color you like or have), mist with water (use sprins bottle), heat gun, paper glue, stickles and stamp...

Now we all ready, lets start!
1. You need to ink stamp with all colors of inks
2. Spray inked stamp with water. Let inks to blend a little bit...
3. Stamp wet stamp on to watercolor paper and lift it up almost immediately...
4. Dry ink using your heat gun...
Your piece of art is ready. Now we can start to assemble the card...
5. Mat brushless watercolored image disstressing the edges and gluing layers to layer using paper glue...
6. Now you can decorate front of the card by assembling frame with gems or pearls...
7. Finish your card on inside and you are done...
I hope you like it and will try it yourself!
My appology for misspalling.. vacation....
You can watch video on this project...


Hugs & Kisses, Natasha
