Masking Liquid & Watercoloring with Re-inkers

For today’s “Ways to use it Wednesday” let’s use our dies in a different way! Let’s liquid mask a sentiment then watercolor over the top to reveal a beautiful clean white sentiment when we are done. I can’t wait to show you how fun and relaxing painting on masks are!  

Last week I showed you how to create the ‘alcohol effect’ without using “alcohol inks”. However, I never did post the cards I made with the results of what I made in the video. I did pull them out in the beginning of the video so here they are to view again.  

The umbrella was fussy cut out of the yellow. Yes, fussy cut… I forgot I have the coordinating punch! haha You know you have too many supplies when… Lastly, I cut out some paper to resemble a “Polaroid” to nest the chick in and stamp the sentiment. Dorbs!

For the “Chick Card” I used the blue background I created on photo paper. I was looking at the background and thought it really looked like a rainy day. I even created a “Raindrops” Stencil on my Cricut then blended some rain over the background. Then I covered each droplet with Shimmery Crystal Effects. I used the top part of the Pineapple Die from “In the Tropics Dies” for the grass, which I die cut out of the green background I did on watercolor paper.

For the “Pineapple Card” I couldn’t help seeing the yellow background on photo paper and feeling like it was representative of a sunshiny day so I used the Stitched Rectangle dies and cut that out the same way I did for the blue background on the “Chick Card” The pineapple itself was cut out of 2 different backgrounds from the watercolor paper. Doesn’t that pineapple look real? I just love how it turned out. 

Anyhow, enough about last weeks cards.  Here are the links to last weeks video & blog post mentioned in the video down below.

This card was just as much fun! Can you see that shimmer in the watercolor rainbow? I love, love that effect. It’s so shimmery and soft. It really does add just the right amount of “Umph” to the card. It is so easy to create the inks with shimmer and blend them on the watercolor paper. Now, just a note, I did use Strathmore Bristol Smooth for this card. As I find it is smooth enough to get a nice crisp outline where I applied the liquid mask/drawing gum. You will also want to use a nice smooth paper. You will see in the video how I applied the Pebeo to create this awesome background.   Wasn’t that cool? I can’t wait to hear if you try this and how it turned out.   

Question: Did you notice this card looks just like the bunny card I posted on Sunday?
 I did them all on the same day. Work smart not hard! haha.
