For this month's projects we focused entirely on different techniques using the Watercolor Wonder Crayons!
First, we made an ornament/gift card holder with the Holiday Line-up stamp set. Everyone got to choose which image they wanted to use, then we used the WWCs to color the image. For this technique, we colored onto a hard plastic surface with the WWC and then used an Aqua painter to pick up the color and transfer it onto the image.
This fabulous gift card holder idea was passed on to me from my upline, Alecia Connelly!
Our second project was a desktop calendar. You can find a tutorial for this nifty idea here! We used the Friends Never Fade stamp set and a color combination of Regal Rose, Rose Red, Always Artichoke and Early Espresso.
We used two different WWC techniques on this project. For the background image, we used the crayons to color directly onto the stamp and then we misted the stamp with some water before stamping onto the watercolor paper.
For the sentiment, we first stamped the image in Early Espresso craft ink and then applied embossing powder and heat set it. Then we used the crayons to directly color onto the paper. Lastly, we blended the color using an aqua painter.
I got the calendars we used in our project here, and they can also be purchased in other sizes and varieties here.
For demonstrations of all the different watercolor techniques we used, watch this great video from Stampin' Up!
Lastly, I wish each and every one of you a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!!!
