Hello and thanks for stopping by today. Every once in a while I am asked to be a Guest Designer and share a project or two and it’s always a happy day for me. Helping others learn is a passion of mine and getting to interact with new friends is really amazing. Today’s project is special in so much as I was asked to do a tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers. I’m thrilled to share the project I designed to share the “drunken watercolor powders” technique. If you like this project, please stop over to Splitcoast at the link below and show them some love. I’ve been blessed to have been working on the Dirty Dozen Design Team there at SCS and have made some amazing friendships. Splitcoast is a wonderful and unique community for stampers and everyone is welcome.
Thank you, Splitcoast Stampers, for giving me this opportunity to share with everyone.
Drunken Watercolor Powders Technique
This project was created as a featured tutorial at Splitcoaststampers. CLICK HERE to visit now.
measurements for this project
Whisper White cardstock layers: 4″ x 5 1/4″
Whisper White cardstock panel: 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
Glossy Paper + alcohol = Drunken Watercolor
It’s a bit of a silly name but there’s nothing silly about this technique
The project starts with scraps of Glossy White Paper. I used three squares that were leftover scraps. After filling a Stampin’ Spritzer with Isopropyl (rubbing) Alcohol, spritz the glossy side of the paper and then shake on your favorite color of Brusho Crystal Color. Ink refills can also be used but do not give the same look as the crystals in the Brusho. Give the crystals a few more light spritzes if you like and watch the colors burst onto the paper. The results are amazing!
After the panels are completely dry, they can be used as a background, they can be die cut… whatever you like. I chose the stamp and heat emboss these gorgeous flowers from the Beautiful Promenade stamp set, then die cut them out on the Big Shot sie cutting machine with the Beautiful Layers Thinlits dies.
