Super Saturday with Pam – Super Samedis avec Pam

Welcome back to Super Saturday.  I hope your new year is off to a good start.  Today I have a project that was inspired by a Kristina Werner video which you can see here.  I decided to experiment with some background pieces that I could use to make “Thank You” cards.

This technique doesn’t require a lot of water so instead of watercolor paper I used Strathmore Mixed Media paper in a variety of colors – White, Black, Toned Tan, and Toned Blue. I also used the Twinkle Tones watercolor paints that my friend Dianne Johnson and I made.  They have a lot of sparkle in them which adds a fun dimension to the cards.  You could use any other pearlescent watercolors such as those made by Finetec or Gansai Tambi.
I used an eye dropper to add water to each of the watercolor pans that I was going to use.  I dipped my paintbrush in a bowl of clean water then wiped off a good amount of it on a towel.  I picked up some paint on my brush and applied it to the paper in random brush strokes.  I followed the same process with several different colors until the piece of cardstock was covered. When the paint was dry I stamped “Happy Birthday” with VersaFine Black Onyx ink and embossed with Black Sparkle embossing powder.  I matted the piece of cardstock with some coordinating paper then adhered it to the front of a white, A2 card. 

I had so much fun with this technique that I created a bunch of card panels.  I experimented with a variety of cardstock colors, paint colors, brush sizes and painting in a variety of directions.  They really sparkle in the light.  If you are interested in learning more about making your own watercolors, you can see Dianne’s blogpost here

What a great effect those stripes on the background with such large bold text. The Twinkle Tones are amazing.
