I am addicted to Pinterest & craft blogs!! Thought I would start with a little confession first. :P I can't believe the amount of HOURS I spend on those sites. But in my defense, they are addicting & they just hypnotize you. :) Ok, maybe not hypnotize but they sure captivate my attention. And I continue to be amazed at the creativity & techniques that crafters use. I tend to stick to stamps, patterned paper, & ribbon. At times I also use my sewing machine.
So I decided to experiment with other techniques and I have to say that I was frustrated at times & giddy at others. I'm trying to figure out how to "age" paper without using coffee, tea, or others items that destroy the archival-quality of the paper. I welcome any ideas you may have.
Another new technique I tried is watercolor. I added some watercolor to watercolor paper & after it dried, I embossed it with a Tim Holtz embossing folder. I was trying to create an ombre effect with the watercolor. And of course, I added ribbon & a stamp sentiment.
There you have it- my first card with watercolor. I would love to hear about your favorite technique(s).
Thanks for stopping by & have a great weekend.
