Hello Blogging Friends!
Today I am on the Joy Clair Blog with a card I made using the newly released Prayer Warrior stamp set.
To start my project I stamped the girl from the Prayer Warrior stamp set with black ink onto some white watercolor paper and then I colored her in with watercolor pencils. After I was finished coloring her all in I took a small paint brush with just a little bit of water and ran the brush over my coloring to blend the colors and smooth it out.
Since I got some of the paint from my brush onto the white background, you see it on the right side next to her feathers, I decided to fussy cut her out instead. Sometimes I start out with a plan but I make a mistake and have to alter my plans, you learn to go with the flow! So I fussy cut her out instead. I decided I needed to add an arrow to the card, so I stamped the arrow with Versa mark onto some more white watercolor paper and then heat embossed it with black embossing powder.
Now it is time to paint the arrow and I decided to use a different water coloring technique, so I got my distress ink, a clear stamp block and a water brush to paint the arrow.
First I take the Aged Mahogany distress ink and rub some on the clear stamp block, then I squeeze a little bit of water from my water brush onto the block and swirl that around and paint the arrow with the water brush until I get the color that I want.
I do the same thing with the Cracked Pistachio distress ink and then when the arrow is all dry I fussy cut it out and get ready to stamp my sentiment.
I picked my sentiment and now it is time to color the background.
I decide that I want to use the Tattered Rose distress ink and the Evergreen Bough distress ink to color my background. So I take my blending tool and rub the two colors onto the background. Now it is time to position the girl and the arrow.
After I decide on their placement I glue them down on the background. Then I get some Kraft card stock for the base of the card.
I inked the edges of the inked paper with Tattered Rose distress ink and attach it to my Kraft card base and my card is done! I love the way the colors all came together on this card!
