Sticking with more water-coloring, our next class involves water-coloring die cuts. We die cut five images from the Quiet Meadow die set on to watercolor paper. Acrylic blocks were stamped with ink and became our palettes for using aqua painter brushes to watercolor the die cuts.
Ink palettes are made by inking the corners of the acrylic blocks with the various inks we are using. And an aqua painter or water coloring brush is used to color the die cuts. For the most part we try to water color the die cuts while still attached to the card they are die cut from (sorry, I didn’t get a photo of that). However, I will use this technique for water-coloring die cuts in the future.
While Stampin’Up! has discontinued the 3D brick embossing folder, you can still find the Quiet Meadow bundle of stamp set and dies at my online store. And to see other card samples with this bundle, click here.
