You are here Home / Splatter card using Aqua Painters
Hello there! I have been in a blue mood lately-Marina Mist, Island Indigo, Dapper Denim…I’ve been pulling those out more and more! Maybe because I’m seeing such lovely holiday cards using blues and silvers? That’s my favorite holiday color duo, so maybe my subconscious is just sending me to those colors in preparation for holiday card making. Who knows? In any case, I’ve a lovely splatter card for you today!
Splattering is one of those great techniques to have on hand, as it gives you a different outcome every time! Grab your Aqua Painters, your brayer, some ink pads, and you are set to go! This may get a little bit messy…
First off, I brayered (a brayer is kind of like a paint roller, just smaller!) using Dapper Denim, Bermuda Bay and Pool Party on watercolor paper. I tried to make it gradient like, making sure the colors overlapped so to create a more streamlined gradient. Then, using the same colors, I did some splattering with the Aqua Painters. I think most of the splatters were Dapper Denim and just plain ol’ water! You’ll want to dry this with your heat tool before you assemble your card.
Finish the card off by adding die cut elements from Swirly Scribbles, Dragonfly Dreams, and (whoops!) the retired Hello You sets. I am usually pretty good about taking retired product out of my current product stash, but somehow this die set missed the cut! You could use any sentiment that you have on hand, or make a banner or punch out a label using the Pretty Label set. Finish off by putting some Glitter Enamel dots around. Man, I love those things.
