Hello everyone, Richard here.
I just love creating with our new Arizona Trail Stamp & Die Set. Today, I’m using it to show you a unique way to create a colorful background.
Take a look at this. When you first look at it, you may think it’s created with watercolor. It’s actually silks! Let’s create super cute project together.
You’ll need the following supplies: Arizona Trail Stamp Set SS-0493| Arizona Trail Die Set DI-0353| Cool Pool Silk IP-0105| Sour Lemon Silk IP-0110| Cosmic Grape Silk IP-0117| Citrus Cooler Silk IP-0093| Black Licorice Ink Pad IP-0041| Lemon Grass Ink Pad| Whip Cream Sparkle Tape| Color Splash Sheet| Corrugated Stock| Watermelon Fusion Cardstock| Whip Cream Cardstock CS-0040| Sweet Pear Cardstock| Fashion Gold AC-0292| Summer Burst Buttons AC-0286| Natural Journey Thread AC-0133| Media Tray TO-0122|
Step 1: Grab a Media Tray. Remove the dividers and fill the tray with water. Then choose your four favorite silks.
Step 2: Splash in your silk. I am using Sour Lemon, Cool Pool, Cosmic Grape and Citrus Cooler.
Step 3: Dip a Color Splash Sheet into the color mixture. You can continue to re-mix and re-apply the mixture to your sheet until you receive the look desired. For this type of technique – no one card will look the same. Your colors will mix together differently every time giving you a truly unique project.
Step 4: Finish assembling your project.
Enjoy the Journey,
