Hi all, Vicki here.  Today I am showing you my tried and true effect to achieving water coloring the faux way ;).

Here is the finished card;

To achieve this water colored look, here are the steps;

I started with these products; water color paper, water spray bottle, distress inks [Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Peacock Feathers, IBS stamp set; Happy Fall. [I also used Flower of the Month; Easter Lilly for my sentiment.]

Step 1 – ink up stamp [solid images really work well with this technique], mist with water

Step 2 – stamp

Keep adding stamped images however you like.  Once done and dried, I used black archival ink to stamp the framing (this type of ink will not bleed), and cut out with Fancy Label Dies 2.

I like the surrounding water colored images to the frame, and that it is also inside the frame.  I added some washi tape, and another panel for layering. To get dimension on my card, I use mounting tape on the back of the panels.

A fun Fall card.  I sure we we could see these pretty colors in Arizona!  Meanwhile I’ll see them on my cards.

See you next month~
