Colorful Seasons

This was really one of my MUST HAVE sets from the new catalog and I was sooooo happy to see that it was on the pre-order list!

The SUO Challenge theme this time is ‘watercoloring’ and well…let’s just say ‘watercoloring’ is not high on my list of things I like to do.  I think part of my issue with watercoloring is that it looks ‘messy’ to me.  I am definitely one of the those ‘color inside the lines kind of gals!’.  LOL!!!  So I decided for my ‘watercoloring’ to use the acrylic block method to ‘watercolor’ a background for my beach chair!

Here’s the details –

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Color Theory dsp stack – two pieces – one 1 1/4 x 4 1/4 and the other 1/2 x 4 1/4; add to card front
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 1/4, ink acrylic block using Crumb Cake, Marina Mist and Soft Sky, spritzer and stamp onto paper – hold down allowing the ink to spread; let dry
  • Stamp frame of chair in Soft Suede and seat in Dapper Denim; stamp breathe in Dapper Denim and just in Soft Suede; add to card front just dimensionals
  • Add some glitter enamel dots to finish off

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see their wonderful creations!

  1. I just Love this card! I plan on making it at my New Catalog Open House. I’ve wanted to try the acrylic block watercolr technique for a looong time. However, I’m having a hard time getting the ink to transfer nicely. Do you have any tips? I colored the block with markers, spritzed with water and held it in place for some time. It didn’t come out like a nice square the way yours did.
