I’ve had so much fun with the super cute Honeycomb Happiness stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration 2016 catalog.
For this card, I used a Lost Lagoon card base and a Shimmery White card layer. I used Aqua Painters to watercolor with Daffodil Delight, Watermelon Wonder, and Lost Lagoon reinkers mixed with water. I completely dried the background with my heat gun.
To get the droplet marks on the watercolor, I used a Stampin’ Mist sprayer and sprayed the surface once. They I used the Aqua Painter to drop little water droplets on the painted surface. After about 30 seconds, I blotted the surface with a paper towel. Stampin’ Up ink is reactive to water, so the water droplets and spray picked up some of the color, adding more detail to the background.
I stamped the little chickie in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I colored the chick with Copic markers to get a shaded look, and cut it out. (I really wish Stampin’ Up would produce more coordinating dies!) I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen to attach it to the watercolor background.
I stamped the sentiment “You’re so Sweet” (from the Honeycomb Happiness set) with Lost Lagoon ink, and attached the watercolor layer to the card base with Fast Fuse adhesive.
The finishing touch is a Honeycomb Embellishment from the 2016 Occasions Catalog. So darling!
This was a really fun project!
