As I was designing the Triple Time Card Kits, I asked myself, “If you can Triple Time Stamp, Brian, then why can’t you Triple Time Water Color?” A new challenge was born. Here’s my Triple Time Water Coloring project:
Here’s how I accomplished the look:
I trimmed the water color paper using the measurements found in my Triple Time Stamping Tutorial. Here’s what the water color paper looked after I stamped the images with StazOn:
Water coloring technique. With my AquaPainter, I pulled color off the flat bottom of the Riding Hood Red watercolor crayon and filled all the petals of the poinsettias. It’s OK if water puddles on the petals as long as it stays inside the lines. It’s that little bit of puddling that gives your project such a great look.
After the Riding Hood Red color was applied, I added a layer of Cherry Cobbler, a darker and richer color. I added the Cherry Cobbler, pulling from the center of the leaf and dragging toward the outside of the flower petal. I only pulled halfway down the flower. This adds depth to the colors in the flower.
Did you add too much color? No problem! Just clean off the AquaPainter, get some water on the tip and swipe the image. Spread out the color or pull it off the paper all-in-all.
Adding metallic brads. I added four gold brads to the centermost layer of this card. To make sure they are all lined up properly, I used the ruler on the paper piercing pack to punch the holes (I punched at the first hole when the ruler is aligned with the edge of the water color paper):
