Watercolour Burst + Believe Stamp Set by Simon Says Stamp

October 31, 2017

Hello everyone,   I was creating background panels using  Brusho Crystal Watercolours and  Frozen Fractals stencils by Simon Says Stamp and I noticed that  the impression produced by one of the stencils looks  like a flower.  That made me think that I could create  a card for any occasion with that background so I reached " SSS Believe Stamp Set" to create this incredible easy and quick encouragement card.

This is also an idea to use  winter - Christmas supplies to create something else and also  to show you how you can control the watercolour powders flow over the paper just by applying different amounts of water.

I made a video to show you how to use the powders . For the card today I applied very little water so I got slightly different results.

Check out related video 

"You can control the way this watercolours burst  just  with the amount of water you spray on the paper.  I like the  effect produced when   applying just a bit of water because the watercolour powders  doesn't burst  that much and instead the produce a beautiful texture "

I embossed the sentiment using Nuvo  Gold Fine Detail embossing powder and I stamped the rest of the sentiments with Simon Stamps Black ink and  I   mixed  Ultramarine Brusho powder with a bit of water  on a pallet  and  I applied color to the fonts using a brush.

That's all!  happy crafting and thanks for stopping by.
