Watercolor Lifting Technique – Thinking of You Card


watercolor lifting thinking of you

Tuesday morning, I was minding my own business, eating my Kashi, and blog surfing. Jennifer McGuire had a new post about Watercolor Lifting . I had to try this technique ASAP!

I pulled out a sunset stripy background I made a while ago, and embossed a retired Stampin’ Up! background stamp (Paisley) over the background. I wanted the stripes to be horizontal, so that limited my background stamp selection. Next time, I will one of my vertical background stamps with more open space.

After the heat embossed paper cooled, I added water, and started blotting with a paper towel. Amazing how easily the watercolor paint comes back up!

I added a sentiment on black.

LOVE the finished card.

Supplies: Stamps – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Canson watercolor, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, ink – Papertrey Ink Fresh Snow, VersaMark, watercolors – Kuretake Gansai Tambi, die – My Favorite Things (pierced rectangle), embossing powders – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, Ranger Silver Pearl.
