Barbara is our hostess this week and she has chosen: cherry cobbler, mossy meadow, pool party, and for dessert: snow. I used the Su! colors as well as zig markers to match as closely as I could because I was doing a faux watercolor technique.
I used the technique that Jill Foster demonstrates on the Penny Black blog for my "Berry Kissed" image; Basically, it involves stamping with the MISTI multiple times, adding ink and spritzing with water before stamping (some of the times) for the watercolor look. Then, without moving the stamp, you stamp again with versamark and clear embossing powder, and heat set. This preserves the watercolor image and allows you to sponge the bg. After sponging the bg with Pool Party, I splattered with diluted acrylic white paint (for a snowy look) and some cherry cobbler. Matted in black before attaching to card front.
