I made a couple of cards, featuring one of the original stamps I bought from Viva Las VegaStamps! a number of years ago.... Diver from Board :
Isn't the diver great. I stamped him in memento black ink and colored him with copics and fussy cut him. I added some white gel pen highlights.
I wanted to create a splashy watery background for him, and this is how I accomplished that :
I used water color powders, sprinkling them onto my water color card stock :
Then I spritzed it with water :
and used a straw to blow the water around.
I love the richness and unpredictable effect you get, a perfect backdrop for my diver.
The words are typed on my typewriter. The card front is matted onto a blue card base.
I made two similar cards, although adapted one image so he's wearing a swim cap :
Thanks for stopping by x
Great effect ! It really looks like the water splashing up as he dives into the water !ReplyDelete
