Glossy Paper Watercolor Wash: Colorful Seasons Bundle & High Tide

Today I'm sharing we did for my Stamping Club.  I offer both local and TO GO Club Opportunities.  You can check them out here:  Dawn's Clubs

For this month's class, used the Colorful Seasons Bundle for all 3 projects.  We did a Spring, Summer & Fall project.  This was the summer project.  What says summer more than a beach landscape?  The Colorful Seasons Bundle pairs beautiful with the popular High Tide stamp set  to create this relaxing seaside landscape (it's like they are meant to go together)!

Create a seaside landscape with Stampin' Up! Seasonal Layers Framelit, Colorful Seasons Bundle, High Tide by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping

For this card, I reached for Glossy Paper and decided to experiment with the Watercolor Wash technique   The look came out a little different on the Glossy Paper, but I liked it!  See instructions below...

Colorful Seasons Beach Landscape card:

  1. Stamp greeting (Colorful Seasons stamp set) with Soft Suede ink near bottom of 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" Glossy Paper.  Let dry.
  2. Squeeze Crumb Cake ink pad to transfer ink to the lid.  Open ink pad and add water from Aqua Painter to pooled ink in lid and mix up.  Then pick up ink with Aqua Painter and wash color onto stamped panel.  Repeat with Island Indigo Ink.  Let dry.
  3. Stamp images from High Tide
    • grass=Crumb Cake
    • birds=soft Suede.
  4. Optional:  flick some of the extra ink/water from the Aqua Painter brush onto panel to add a little texture(see close-up photo below)
  5. Adhere completed panel to 4" x 5-1/4" Soft Sky cardstock.  
  6. Wrap Linen Thread around twice and tie in a bow.  Then adhere to folded 11" x 4-1/4" Crumb Cake card base.
  7. Die cut chair from Soft Suede cardstock using Seasonal Layers Framelit Dies. Adhere with new Mini Stampin' Dimensionals (these were a hit at the class!).
