I used the Stampin’ Up! Sitting Here stamp set from the upcoming 2016-17 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog to create my card for the Happy Stampers blog hop. We’ve got a color challenge this week and this is what I made for it.
Here are the colors that we’re using this week:
I started by stamping the swing, bird, sentiment and flowerpot images from the Sitting Here photopolymer stamp set (available June 1) in Basic Gray Archival Ink on a panel of watercolor paper.
I used my Aqua Painter along with Sahara Sand, Mint Macaron and Crushed Curry inks to paint the stamped images. Then I stamped the image of the swing shadow from the Sitting Here stamp set in Sahara Sand ink under the swing on the watercolor panel.
I stamped the pillow images from the Sitting Here stamp set in Basic Gray Archival ink on a separate panel of watercolor paper and I watercolored them with Crushed Curry and Mint Macaron inks. Once everything had dried, I snipped the rectangular pillow out and punched the round pillow with the 3/4″ Circle Punch and I adhered them both to the watercolor panel with Glue Dots.
I brushed the edges of the watercolor panel with Sahara Sand ink and a Clarity Stenciling Brush, then adhered the panel to a panel of Basic Gray card stock with Fast Fuse Adhesive and to a Mint Macaron card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a single It’s My Party Enamel Dot (retiring) next to the sentiment to finish the card front.
I inked the swing image from the Sitting Here stamp set in Sahara Sand ink, stamped it on scrap paper once, then stamped it on a panel of watercolor paper inside the card.
