Hi everyone! I’m back for a quick post. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter (@carissawiley) you probably saw that I have been on vacation with my family. We had such a wonderful time together. We arrived back home last night and today I am off to CHA in Las Vegas.
I wanted to bring you a cool new technique that I am calling Watercolored Letterpress. I’ve been thinking about trying this technique for some time…and I finally got around to it. I realize that I used a spray to create the “watercolor” but it works just the same using some watercolors and a brush and then letter pressing over that. I've also been successful with letter pressing images first and then watercoloring them with watercolors and a brush. This is especially beautiful with flower images.
The background was inspired by the ocean and reminds me of a mermaid’s tail. The photo just doesn’t do it justice. We went on a cruise to the Caribbean on our vacation, and I’ve had all things sea and nautical on the brain. I just love this background.
I have posted a video walking you through the entire creation of this card. I have also linked the products I used in this card below. If you head over to Lifestyle Crafts to do some shopping, use the coupon code GLITTER at checkout to receive 20% off your order.
I hate to rush off so quickly, but I’m off to Vegas BABY with my bestest friend. Hope to hear from all of you soon!
Have a fabulous day!
