WPlus9 Throwback Thursday Challenge

Saturday, February 21, 2015

 
On the third Thursday of each month Maureen shares projects showcasing an older WPlus9 stamp set on the WPlus9 Design Blog, Throwback Thursday.  This month she has challenged everyone to join her and have a chance to win a $20 GC to the WPlus9 store!  I'm joining in just for fun and to encourage you to play along!  All of the details can be found {here}
 
 
Part of the challenge is to use  Maureen's projects as inspiration.  I chose to recreate her watercolor panel using gelatos.  Gelatos are a great medium, fun and versatile.  There are so many ways to use them.  I decided to lay down color from the gelato onto my craft mat and then pick it up with a wet paint brush.  I painted my color on in a gradient and set it aside to dry.  I die cut my watercolor piece with a die from Sunshine Layers and then stamped some fun clouds from an old favorite, Heartfelt Mix.  I couldn't resist adding in some of the newest stamps and dies from Unforgettable
 
 
In order to stamp my clouds on the card base in the correct spot, I used a stamp positioner.  I stamped the cloud onto the stamp positioner's clear sheet.  Placed the watercolor panel on the card base where I wanted it to be mounted later.  I placed the clear stamp positioner sheet on top of the already stamped clouds and carefully slid the watercolor piece out of the way.  This left the stamp positioner in the exact spot it needed to be for the clouds to match up when the watercolor panel was mounted.  Sounds complicated, but was really quite simple and easy to do.
