Sale-a-bration on Sunday – Watercolouring with Irresistibly Yours

Hey! Welcome to another Sale-a-bration on Sunday!

I am loving Sale-a-bration this year, there are so many lovely products for you to choose from when you spend £45 in either the Annual or Spring/Summer catalogues. Although I love all the stamp sets that are available, I think the Irresistibly Yours Designer Series Paper is my absolute favourite item!

Stampin' Up! UK sale-a-bration SAB irresistibly yours designer series paperThis paper is patterned, but with glossy white patterns, making it perfect for emboss resist techniques – just like this one!

I have made a video tutorial for this, however it is super simple – I smoosh (technical term!) my ink pad face down onto my glass worktop, a large acrylic block would work just as well, and add some water to make a Stampin’ Up! coloured watercolour! and use a large flat brush to apply this ink/water combo into the paper. The glossy areas resist the ink and so stay white, rub over the piece with a cloth or piece of paper towel to clean the ink off though. The piece needs to be left to dry (or dried with a heat tool) for about 10 minutes before attaching to the card.

The card I make in the video uses Rose Red ink, and a Mossy Meadow Card base, while the other just uses Night of Navy. I would suggest that a deeper colour works best for this technique so that the white areas really pop.

The stamp is also a Sale-a-bration item – the Simply Wonderful stamp set, which coordinates with the Extra-Large oval punch!

Thanks for joining me for Sale-a-bration on Sunday, see you again next week for some more great techniques and crafty projects.
