Tropical Party color wash card
You can view a color wash video here. Using her technique, here is the card we can up with. To do the color wash is so easy, just scribble Bashful Blue, then we chose to use Night Quite Navy (instead of Taken with Teal) and finally Soft Suede on Stampin' Up! Watercolor paper. Using a very wet Aqua Painter spread the color using a back a forth motion, to blend. Clean your Aqua Painter between each color, by simply wiping off on a paper towel. The Palm trees were stamped on Whisper White using markers, cut out and popped with Stampin' Dimensionals. I decided that I wanted to add writing in the sand. You will notice that I stamped my "Love you" with Soft Suede, then decided that, you need to stamp off first to get the right effect, see Denise's card below. Except for cutting out the Palm trees, this is a fun fast card. this card is also a part of July's Stamp camp, since you had nothing to cut out on the "Because I care" card. Try this technique out, I am sure you will love it.
