Secret Garden Rose Frosted Watercolour

Sorry if I appear to have been MIA for the past few days. In fact, I have been ultra busy with the annual Dare to Get Dirty Challenge Week on Splitcoaststampers. This set of challenges is for Fan Club members only and offers challenges each day over the week by the SCS design team members. This year there are 42 challenges. It is now the end of day 4, and I have completed all 23 challenges to date. I will showcase all of them here over the next little while. I cannot give actual details of the challenge – for that you will need to become a Fan Club member of Splitcoaststampers. It is well worth the small outlay for all the extra goodies you can access. For example, you get access to Fan Club only templates, tutorials and patterns, just to name a few things.

For today, I have a Frosted Watercolour card to share. I took a piece of Crumb Cake and punched the sides with the Pinking Hearts Border Punch [sadly retired]. Some flowers and stems from Secret Garden were stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with White EP. They were then coloured with an Aqua Painter and Whisper White Craft Ink. When the ink was dry, I used an Aqua Painter and Rose Red [for the flowers] and Garden Green [for the stems] to colour over the white ink. This produces a pretty frosted effect. The panel was layered onto a base of Rose Red and some Basic Black added down each side to frame the art panel. A sentiment from Teeny Tiny Sentiments completed the picture.

  1. Hi Linda
    Thank you for your comment. It can take a while, depending on the weather and how wet the card stock is. I usually get impatient and use a heat tool to set it within a few minutes.


  2. This is really pretty. How long do you have to wait for the white to dry before you can add other colors?



I would love to hear what you think of my blog. Thank you for your comments.
