Penned & Painted and the Color Wash Technique

Penned & Painted Stampin' Up!

 Hello Friends,

Do you enjoy learning new stamping techniques?  It's fun step outside the box and try new thing.  The Penned & Painted stamp set by Stampin' Up! has some pretty outline stamps that look fabulous using the Color Wash Technique.  

Color Wash Technique

Color Wash Technique

The trick to coloring on a dark card stock is a technique called Color Washing.  First, stamp and heat emboss your images.  This gives you a nice outline.  Next, paint on a layer of Whisper White Ink inside each outline.  After the White Ink is dry, color your flowers with either an aqua painter or a clear Wink of Stella Brush.  See the video below to see how to watercolor with the Wink of Stella Brush.

 The flowers take on a translucent look using this technique.   And painting with the Wink of Stella Brush gives the flower a shimmery finish as well.  The flowers are gorgeous and they look even better in real life.

I used the Wink of Stella instead of an Aqua Painter to color my flowers.  The subtle glimmer is gorgeous.

Lift Me Up Hot Air Balloons

Lift Me Up! Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Have you ever gone Hot Air Balloon chasing?  It's quite the adventure.  Who knows where the balloon might land.  The last time we went on a Hot Air Balloon chase was a lazy evening just before dark.   A beautiful Hot Air Balloon was riding low over our farm house.  Curiosity got the best of us.  We hopped in the car for a balloon chase.  Believe it or not the Balloon landed in a cow pasture a few roads over.  The cows just stood there chewing their cud staring at the strange new arrival.

Today's card brought to mind that dusky evening balloon chase.  The Lift Me Up Bundle captures the beauty and the romance of ballooning and was a perfect choice for making today's card.  It's a must have stamp and die bundle for all Hot Air Balloon lovers.

Lift Me Up Hot Air Balloon Stamps

To get the look of a dusky sky, I heat embossed white Hot Air Balloons, then sponged Soft Sky and Wisteria Wonder ink across them.  This Technique is called Emboss Resist, because the embossed areas resist the ink.  Next, I stamped Wisteria Wonder Clouds and cut them out with the Up & Away Thinlits Dies and my Big Shot and scattered them across my sky.

The Wisteria Wonder, Soft Sky and Wild Wasabi is this week's Splitcoast Stampers color challenge.  I'm happy to announce that I've been asked to be a Guest Designer for the Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge for the month of February.  Be sure to stop back, every Tuesday for a new color combo.
