CAS-ual Watermarking


I was very happy to find out that we were going to do a collaboration with CAS-ual Fridays, and as soon as my goodies came, I made this project right away. There are prizes to be won, and all of the details can be found on the Imagine Crafts Blog and on the CAS-ual Friday Blog. This is a HUGE hop, so sit back, relax, and enjoy all of the crafty goodness! 

Supplies:
Imagine Crafts:
Walnut Ink: Eucalyptus, Terra Cotta, Java
VersaMark ink pad
VersaMagic: Tea Leaves
VersaFine: Spanish Moss, Vintage Sepia
Goosebumps Dauber
Clear Embossing Powder


Others:
CAS-ual Fridays: CTSS-13-020: Wonderful Words
Stampendous: Fitted Frames Set B
Whisker Graphics: Divine Twine
Beacon Adehsieves: Zip Dry Glue
Recollections: Ivory Card Base, cream cardstock
Artist's Loft: Watercolor Paper

Directions: 


1.   On watercolor paper, stamp the large flowers from the Wonderful Words stamp set with VersaMark and emboss with clear embossing powder. Repeat steps with the smaller flower.


2. Spray the embossed watercolor paper with Eucalyptus, Terra Cotta, and Java Walnut Inks. Don’t go too heavy with the coverage. You want to be able to see the different colors. Rub the paper with a paper towel while the sprays are still wet to slightly blend the colors and remove the spray from the embossed areas. 

1.   3. Using a sentiment from the same stamp set, stamp it on to cream cardstock using Vintage Sepia VersaFine ink. Die cut the sentiment using the small “H” Fitted Frame.  Ink the edges with VersaMagic in Tea Leaves, and then ink a smaller border with Spanish Moss VersaFine. 


4.  Once the ink is dried, go over the sentiment with Original Goosebumps with the dauber top to give the piece some sheen and texture. I gave it 2 coats.

5. Using the Tea Leaves and Spanish Moss inks again, ink the edges of the card base. Wrap the mat originally made with Divine Twine, and tie a knot. Adhere all layers together using Zip Dry Glue.
