Hello everyone!! Today I'm sharing some inspiration using Inspired By Stamping digital images. First, let me show you my card:
I wanted to show you how easy and quick it is to make cards with these digital images. I started by printing the digital image on my watercolor paper. I decided to watercolor the butterfly with Distress Ink Peacock Feathers. I have an inkjet printer and the ink is not suitable for watercoloring. So I had to be very careful not to go over the printed image. As always, I smooshed my Peacock Feathers ink pad on to the acrylic block and used wet on wet technique. I wet a segment of the wings with water and applied the teal color with my wet brush. One little trick I like to do is, when I wet the paper first, instead of using plain water, I used a watery mix of the teal color. That way, you have a light color wash already in place. So when you add more color to the already wet paper, it creates a beautiful gradient. Here's my colored butterfly. Trim it to 4" x 5.5".
Now, I took the Peacock Feathers ink pad and inked both the left and right edges of a top folding A2 card base with it.
Then I adhered the watercolored panel on to the card base, leaving a 1/8" border on the left and right, so that the inked edges are visible.
That's it! This is a quick and simple way to make cards. Please make sure to see all the beautiful digital images that are available in the Inspired By Stamping Store.
