Negative Watercoloring & Splattered Foil – Video Tutorial, Blog Hop + Winners!

When I think I can’t stretch my craft and art supplies any further, I find myself playing and creating fun new things I had not thought of before! Today I’m sharing a mini video tutorial with quick tips on how to create this negative watercolored background with yummy, detailed splattered foil!



Supplies used:
Amazing Things Rubber Stamp Set
Acrylic Stamping Block
Passionate Pink Premium Dye Ink
Cryogen White Cardstock
Marie’s Watercolors in Rose and Gamboge
Medium and Fine tip Water Brushes
Deco Foil Adhesive Pen
Wild Dandelion Deco Foil
Westcott 12″ Titanium Bonded Paper Trimmer

This card might as well be one of my favorites… I just enjoy painting backgrounds so much and I love the negative watercoloring using these two colors! Such an inspirational stamp set surely needs a colorful canvas to complete its sentiments!

I’m not sure how the foil splatter came about… This watercolored background was very instinctive and it was such a natural process for me. I usually like to splatter watercolor to add an organic touch to my watercolor washes so I guess somehow I thought splattering foil would work -and it did. I love how that yellow foil matches the Gamboge Yellow on the background and at the same time breaks the monotony of what would have been a simple watercolor wash adding texture and glimmer!

If you love this kit you might as well want to check out the entire new rubber stamp collection by Graciellie Design for Unity Stamp Company. Today’s stamp set is called Amazing Things, and it’s one of my favorites!
