Stampin' Up! In the Moment


The simple layers on this card featuring Stampin' Up!'s In the Moment Stamps really create something special with this one.  Even with all the different techniques used on this card, it is still pretty simple, with lots of opportunity to learn something new.

For the red background piece, I started by adding Real Red ink to Basic White Cardstock with a Blending Brush.  Each time I added more ink, I started at the top and worked my way down.  This made the top a darker shade than the bottom of the cardstock.  Then, I used my medium Water Painter to splatter Liquid Glue on the piece.  The first time I didn't wait long enough before adding the Gilded Leafing, so I got some water spots...which adds to the texture, I think.  The second time, I made sure to wait longer before adding the Gilded Leafing.  (This is one of my favorite techniques...I show how it's done in this YouTube video)

The image was water colored using Water Painters and Classic Stampin' Pads.  Before opening your pads, squeeze them to grab a little ink in the lid.  Then, only open them partway so you can use the lids as your ink palettes.
