Cathy takes elegant to the next level today with this one-layer masterpiece…

Ready to create this look yourself?
Here’s how:

1) Mask off a rectangle in the center of the card. Add Memento Inks to an acrylic block, spritz with water and add colors randomly to paper to create background.

2) Ink Poppy Parade with Rhubarb Stalk and Bamboo Leaves markers spritz with water stamp and color using pens adding water to blend and spread design.

3) When dry re-ink stamp with markers again and stamp onto project without adding water (this will give flower definition). Stamp sentiment from Kind Words set using Versafine ink, highlight the centres of the flowers with the IrRESISTible Pico embellisher, flick walnut ink over design to age and then remove masking tape to reveal finished card.

This one-layer watercolor creation by Heather gives a whole new look to our T for Transparent set 30-225 Petal Power.

To create this effect, the stamps were inked in two tones of Memento ink, spritzed, then stamped onto watercolor paper. More color was added and blended with a paintbrush. The same inks were splattered over the panel with a paintbrush and finally a sentiment was added.

Join us tomorrow for more one-layer fun!

Heather created this watercolor scene by first stamping her flowers in pale yellow and then applying watercolor inks in a loose, wet-into-wet manner. A few ink splatters finish the design.
