CAS-ology theme this week is friend, and I finally had some time to do a bit of crafting last night. I made two cards... The first uses Freshly Made Sketch #170, a Sissix die and stamp set, with Close To My Heart paper (Scaredy Cat) for the front panel.
The next card was a technique experiment that really became frustrating.
I had been watching videos for using watercolor/resist technique, and wanted to try it again. I have had a tough time getting my attempts to look right. One video suggested using the heat tool to dry things right away. That really helped the pucker-buckling issue I was having even with the more expensive watercolor paper. I adore the look that others achieve, and will not give up yet.
The paper was stamped with Versamark and embossed with clear powder. Then I applied the watercolor. I attempted creation of water spots...but it just wasn't working. The image was so unclear, that I stamped over the embossing with CTMH Whisper ink which I had used for the sentiment. A few clear sequins, and offset placement on Whisper card stock panel.
I am far from satisfied with this, but perhaps a lot more practice will help!
