Hey everyone. How's it going? Today I have a Thank You card for a dear friend. I watercolor-stenciled the front and back base mats.
SU and Springhill Digital card stocks
Water color paper
A Colorful Life Lace stencil (front)
Dylusions Shattered stencil (back)
Distress Oxide reinkers, diluted 50/50 with water
Funky Fossil stamped sentiment
Versafine Clair ink
Trimcraft Santoro Mirabelle EF Folder, embossed on DCWV card
Altenew Embroidered Blooms Stamps and Dies
I used this Splitcoaststampers sketch for my layout design, resizing to A9.
The way I did the watercoloring was, I put a drop of Cracked Pistashio, Tea Rose and Scattered Straw DOX reinkers in palette wells and diluted each one with a drop of water. I did the back mat first, using a wet brush. I got some seep-thru so I changed to a sponge finger dauber for the front mat, squeezing out the liquid onto a paper towel before stenciling. I ink-distressed the dry-embossed card with Scattered Straw DOX.
The back along with a stamped, water colored and circle-punched siggie.
And final view.
Now some food for Rain's Art & Dinner Date.
We made brunch last Sunday. Scrambled eggs with cheese, bacon, toast and hash brown patties with ketchup. Sometimes I don't mind the ketchup touching any of my other food, but sometimes I do mind. So I make a little dam to segregate the ketchup, lol. Salsa is another matter. Had I thought of it, I'd have pulled our big jug of Pace Picante Sauce out of the fridge and poured it on everything. 😂😋😍 I am well aware it's tomato-based like the ketchup but I love those spices and chopped up bits of veggies. At any rate, this is a meal we always enjoy.
Thanks for visiting me today - have a good one!
