I am so very happy that Touches of Texture carried over to the new Annual Catalog.  And with losing Gorgeous Grunge we definetely need the splatter and other background pieces.

My card today is a very simple background.  I made this card for a swap at OnStage and did 14 backgrounds in about10 minutes.  I put drops of reinker onto a clear block and then used the aqua painter to spread it on the Shimmery White card stock.  The Shimmery White is perfect for this.  Don’t get me wrong, I love watercolor paper but I find it hard to get a clear stamped image sometimes.  With the Shimmery White, you easily get a clear stamped image and the added bonus of the “Shimmer”.

Her is my card:

Touches of Texture, watercolor, Shimmery White, basic pearls, Stampin' Up!, Jackie Beers, Independent Demonstrator

Touches of Texture, 143251, $33.00

 

I hope you like this as much as I do.  This is such a simple technique.  It would be easy for beginner stampers and can be stepped up if more pizzaz is wanted.The unevenness of the watercolor makes it unique even if you are doing 14 like I did. No two look alike and that is great.  I added two different sizes of the basic pearls to the open flowers for some added texture.

The layers are basic layers of base = 8 1/2 X 5 1/2, next layer = 4 X 5 1/4, watercolor = 3 3/4 X 5.  So easy !!
