The House That Stamps Built; Designer Choice Challenge
It’s the second Wednesday of July and that means it’s time for a Designers Choice Challenge at The House That Stamp Built! Today, Patti is hosting our challenge and she has chosen “White Plus 1 Color.”
For my “White Plus 1 Color card” I chose to do some liquid masking. This is a fairly simple technique, it just requires a little patience, which I usually don’t possess.
To begin, you stamp your image with permanent ink. I used Repeat Impressions “Spring Blossoms 1320-M with Archival Black Ink. As I was going to use a watercolor medium, I stamped my image on 140lb Strathmore watercolor paper. If you don’t get the stamp even in all areas, you can touch it up using a Copic Multiliner.
The next step is to apply liquid frisket or any other masking medium. Did you know rubber cement would also work? Once you “paint” the stamp with your liquid mask, allow to completely dry. I then applied a combination of red and white pearl watercolors from my gorgeous Kuretake paints all over the image without worry as it’s protected by the mask. It created this beautiful shimmery pink. The edges were created by taping my paper down and carefully lifting the tape off once all was dried.
I finished off by stamping Repeat Impressions “Birthday 1113-D” and finished off with pearls and sequins.
I sure hope you break out your creativity for “White plus 1 color” this week at The House that Stamps Built. Happy Wednesday!
