Watercolor Paper and Dragonflies...The Perfect Mix!

Did you see the dragonfly posting from the other day?  No?  Well just check out a previous blog post this week...and check it out.....
 
How about this stunning card?
 
This card was created by Shelli Gardner from the recent On Stage Event.....are you wondering....
 
How Did She Do That?
 
Let me tell you...SUper Simple!
 
 
The background CS is Watercolor Paper and all she did was using a few of our new Watercolor Pencils....WHAT?  WHAT?????   Watercolor Pencils?????
 
Yes...that's right...they are coming back...in the Occasions Catalog....OMG...are you excited?
I am excited...I always loved our Watercolor Pencils...actually I hoarded mine (remember them...they came in a tin?)...the unfortunate part of the previous Watercolor Pencils were that they didn't match our colors...but HELLO...these do! 
 
Okay.....sorry.....I got off track....
 
So to create this technique.....take multiple like colors and scribble onto your Watercolor Paper (have you used this paper....you must!).....You can do as little or as much as you would like closely together. Like this....

 
Then with our Stampin' Spritzer filled with plain ol' tap water.....spritz the paper with the water....it will kind of bead up and then bleed out....(no worries...no cardstock was hurt during this technique)....and it gives you that watercolor look....be sure to set aside and allow to dry...or you can use your heat tool and help it dry quickly....

 
Let's take another look...shall we?
 
 
Interested in trying this technique?  Let's plan a Play Date....and gather together some friends and we can all create this fun card...and learn something new as well!
 
I'm currently opening dates for in home parties (your place or mine)...or a private class...for you and your friends/family...Contact me today....and let's plan it!
 
Have a SUper Stampin' Day!
 
Glimmer Hugs!
