Here is one last card that I made using the postcard technique shown earlier this week.
On this particular card after I used a brayer to apply the Tsukineko Kaleidacolor ink in the "Tomato Vine" colors and sprayed it with water, I dried the paper with a heat gun.
Then I put some water on my fingers and flicked it on to the watercolor paper panel. The longer you allow the water to sit the more ink will be removed. I allowed it to sit for about 30 seconds, applied some heat from my gun and then blotted it with a paper towel. When this was completely dry, I stamped it with a phrase stamp by Rubber Stampede and Impression Obsessions Gardening Tools stamp. StazOn Black ink is my favorite permanent ink. After this was completely dry I glued the card to a black piece of card stock and then adhered the entire panel to a blank white card. I tied an orange and white piece of bakers twine on to the cards crease. The final touch was Tsukineko Goosebumps applied just to the butterfly for a little extra texture.
Thanks for stopping by today. Please leave a comment if you have time, I love hearing what you think. Have a great day and stay warm!
