I had my first play with our new Water Colour Paint set today and it was FUN! I have opened the lid of the paints several times but I’ve been too scared to have a go.
After chatting to a couple of consultants at our state training day yesterday I was encouraged to just try something small and easy.
I simply painted 3 shades of blue across a piece of white daisy cardstock, let it dry, stamped on top of it and then trimmed it down. It’s not perfect but I quite like the effect.
This is what I learned…
1. If the water colour paint isn’t drying fast enough for you, use your heat tool or hair dryer to hurry it along.
2. If you use said heat tool the paper will curl so you will need your Bonding Memories glue pen to stick the paper to front of the card.
3. Don’t move the wet brush over your project once you’ve stamped because a drip will land on your flower.
I used this month’s Stamp of the Month, Paper Garden (S1509) and 2 sets from the Hello Life special stamp sets (CC1040 & CC1041). When you order any (or all) of the Hello Life stamps this month, they count toward your $75 total to receive the Stamp of the Month for just $7.50. Start shopping here
