It's a brand new month, the first Monday and so that means it's time for the Creative Cutting Challenge #42 - Thanksgiving
The file I'm using for this card is Grapevine from the Creative Pointe store. It's easy to use and so adaptable - I chose to only use part of the 'vine' and keep the focus on the cluster of grapes. I cut the elements on my Sizzix eclips2 using all white paper for those elements of my card.
Coloring of the vine and cluster was accomplished using the eBrush and some markers. Once those elements were all colored, I added some glitter for just a little more dimension and bling I set them aside while I worked on the watercolor background.
Using a versamark marker in the ebrush, spray using the stencil you choose. I chose a doily I found online. Once you've sprayed, you may need to huff a little before you add the embossing powder. Using a heat gun, set the embossing powder. You can now watercolor your watercolor paper.
I lightly spritzed the paper and then using the ebrush sprayed the paper. the closer to the paper you spray, the deeper the color. You can wipe the color off of the embossed areas for a crisper image.
Once you are satisfied, let the paper dry. If it curls a bit, you can put it under a couple of books and it should flatten out. Just make sure that the paper is completely dry.
Adhere the watercolor paper to the card base. Add the grapevine elements and for my sentiment, I chose to use a clear tag from an old set I had in my stash. I used a glue dot to adhere it and then added a gem I colored with one of the markers.
