Today I'm joining the Watercoloring Challenge ... which is to make a card using a technique (there's no mention that it has to be a birthday card, so hopefully any Neat & Tangled stamps will work).
Last weekend during my Quilt Walk adventure, I discovered a children's toy store that had an entire rack of Faber Castell art supplies for kids. I picked up a set of Gelatos in wonderful primary colors. I decided to see how they would work with an emboss resist technique ... and the answer is ... fabulous!
I then colored with my yellow gelato on the remaining scraps of watercolor paper and blended with water and a paintbrush. I dried the paper with my heat gun and then stamped the Little Tangles Curlicues and Kindness Matters Sentiment in India ink and clear embossed for a bit more pop ... love the vibrant color.
The Sketch is from Paper Players. I dyed a wooden arrow with India ink, and placed it more towards the top to work with the starburst design. I finished with some orange gems to give the same feel as the pointing arrows in the sketch.
