What’s hot right now? Triangles, chevron, gold, watercolors – just to name a few. This card showcases so many current trends while still effortlessly blending them into one lovely card. Following every single trend can be costly and take up a lot of space though! If you want to hop on the watercolor trend, you don’t need to invest in paints. Thanks to this tutorial from Design Team member Kimberly, you can create the look of that soft color wash with ink pads you already own.To begin, stamp the Patterned Triangles Background onto white card stock with Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink. Heat emboss with white embossing powder. Make sure to examine the image closely before heat setting to ensure there is no stray powder that will mar the final image when you add color. If necessary, remove any excess embossing powder with a small paintbrush.
- Work in a triad with the colors. This means to apply the colors in a triangular pattern around the card stock base.
- Add more ink over each color section as required. It’s easy to layer colors with this technique.
- Allow the colors to overlap and blend together. This creates a beautiful, smooth transition between them.
- Use foam adhesive tape on the back of your card stock panel to help smooth out any curvature of the paper from the water.
