Today, the spotlight is on our sponsors Crafty Scrappers and Gerda Steiner Designs who have generously supplied prizes for our celebration.
I'm using a digital sentiment from Crafty Scrappers' Ms. Cupcake stamp set for my card.
First of all, did you know that you can watercolour with digital stamps? I did not, until I watched an informative video by Ishani here where she demonstrates some clever ways to use digital stamps. Well, I just had to try it out myself. I started by applying my static powder bag over a piece of watercolour paper. After sizing the digital image, I printed it out onto watercolour paper with my inkjet printer. Right away, I added clear embossing powder and heat set it with my heat tool. I have yet to master the technique of heat setting without warping the paper. I placed the panel under some stacks of paper to flatten it out. To add colour, I used distress inks - cracked pistachio, peacock feathers, shaded lilac applied with a water brush. I added a few sequins for a bit of sparkle.
Hope this is something you might try yourself. It's a nice option for working with digital images.
