Adding Multiple Colors with Faux Watercoloring

As you’ve seen in other posts, this is my art side coming out. Veterinary Dentistry is the arts and crafts of veterinary medicine.

This post is part of a series started many months ago in regards to card creations we are using in the office (and showcasing my creative outlet).

In Altenew’s class, “Polychromatic,” different ways to add color were reviewed. My favorite project in the class was the monochromatic one, but I chose to utilize the faux hand watercolored effect technique in my project.

I know this faux hand watercolored effect as ‘rock and roll.’ Use a solid stamp, inked fully with a lighter colored ink, then using a rock and roll motion add bits of color to the edges of the stamp with the darker color. Spritz with water and stamp.

The word thanks was die cut and layered to raise the text.

Gold sequins were added.

If you are the recipient of one of these cards from my office, I hope it brightens your day!
