The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers #71 ~~ W is for Watercolour

Winter seems to be rearing it's ugly head, time to hunker down and stay warm ~~ and craft woohoo, I can get to do all those techniques I have saved for later.  Watercolour isn't one of my go to techniques, I would like to learn more which is why I did some searching for something different. I found it at Jennifer McGuire Ink and decided to try it for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge, W is for Watercolour.


If I was looking to use NBUS items (never been used stuff) this challenge, The snowflake is from Stampin'up and never been inked so I used versamark and  white embossing powder on watercolour paper. The technique uses perfect pearls in water spritz but I'm not sure where mine are so I unsealed some liquid shimmer paint I just had to have in three colours, none have ever been opened. I put three shades of blue distress ink on my craft mat, spritzed it with the shimmer instead of water then took my fingers and painted. The sentiment is from a package of foil embossed stickers from Dollar Tree. Here is my finished fingers.....


It will eventually wear off as it won't wash off but oh so much fun to finger paint.


Finished inside and layered the sentiment on recollections dark blue shimmer paper and then on white which were cut with Elizabeth Craft Design stitched rectangles.

Thanks for visiting today head over to the main blog and check out what the rest of the team have made and while there take a peek at the rules before you enter the challenge.

What a gorgeous card, and the background is well worth the beautifully painted fingers. Has it worn off yet? I often find nail varnish remover helps.
