An Aqua Painter Background with the Peaceful Moments Bundle

Card Measurements and Supply List for this project are found at the bottom of this blog post.

For this month’s Stamping Lovelies Team color challenge I broke out my aqua painter and the Poppy Moments dies.

Start with a Calypso Coral cs card base. Cut a Bermuda Bay cs panel and a Whisper White cs panel. On three acrylic blocks add a small amount of Calypso Coral ink, Bermuda Bay ink, and Pacific Point ink from ink refills. Add water to the inks with aqua painter. With a damp (not wet to prevent pilling) aqua painter add Calypso Coral ink to the Whisper White cs (if you like it more wet use Watercolor or Shimmer paper) to create a color wash background. When completely dry glue the colored Whisper White cs panel to the Bermuda Bay cs panel. Wrap the panels with Whisper White Flax Ribbon and use glue dots to secure the ends to the back of the panels. Glue the wrapped panel to the card base.

Die cut out the flower pieces (one big and one small) from the Calypso Coral cs and Pacific Point cs with the Poppy Moments dies. Use glue to build the flowers. Die cut out leaves from Bermuda Bay cs with the Poppy Moments dies. Use your aqua painter to add a small amount coordinating color to the flowers and leaves giving a soft watercolor effect on the cs. Add Wink of Stella to the flowers centers.

Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the large the flower to the card front in the lower right overlapping the ribbon. Use glue to tuck the leaves around the flower.

Stamp the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Bermuda Bay ink on Whisper White cs. Use paper snips to closely fussy cut out the sentiment. Use your aqua painter to add Pacific Point ink to the edges of the sentiment panel. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the sentiment to the card front on the left of the flower overlapping the ribbon. Pull two strands from the Whisper White Flax ribbon, tie a small bow, and use glue dots to attach it to the card front below the sentiment. Add rhinestones to the card front.

Don’t forget to add a Whisper White cs inside panel. I stamped the sentiment, added Calypso Coral ink color to the bottom with my Aqua Painter, and the small built flower to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.
