This Emboss Resist Watercolor Easter Egg Card was fun to make! The other day I got out the Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Paper and played with it. On some pieces I stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder, then watercolored with reinkers and my Aqua Painter. When you use Watercolor Paper you can move the color around and work with it, which you cannot do with regular cardstock. I also spritzed the Watercolor Paper with water to help move the color. You can use the Stampin’ Spritzer or any plastic spray bottle. A couple of the pieces of Watercolor Paper I just spritzed with water, dropped on some reinker colors, let it flow around, maybe spritzed some more, and dabbed the excess with a paper towel. This resulted in just multicolored paper, which I then die cut with the Oval Framelit Dies for the “plain” eggs on this card.
The card base is Daffodil Delight cardstock. The background layer is a piece of the Sale-A-Bration Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper. The grass is the Cherry on Top Cotton Paper, cut with the Fringe Scissors. (Even though the Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper is one of the Limited items, at this point in time it looks like they still have inventory so you can still choose it as your FREE Sale-A-Bration item.) The Happy Easter greeting is from the Easter Lamb Wood-Mount Stamp. Love that lamb stamp! It will still be cute to use after Easter on baby cards or other things!
