HLS March Mixed Media Challenge - Water

Hello everyone! Welcome to another edition of the Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media Challenge, the theme for March is Water.
Use water on your mixed media projects, you can interpret it anyway you like, use Faber Castell Gelatos with water or use distress stains with water, or any other medium with water! You can make anything you like - this challenge is definitely not limited to cards!
The challenge is sponsored by Happy Little Stampers
The winner will get one stamp set from HLS. You don't have to use HLS stamps to enter.

For my card I used Faber Castell Gelatos with water on smooth, glossy card stock. I first scribbled onto the glossy cardstock with 3 shades of gelatos and then added some water and blended the colors a bit with my fingers. Then I added big drops of water onto the colored area with a big round brush. Since the cardstock is glossy it does not absorb the water and we get gorgeous colored puddles. I moved the water around on the background and then dried it with a heat gun. I finally stamped the sentiment from the EveryDay Sentiments stampset from Happy Little Stampers and heat embossed it. I also added some chevron patterns from the Mix Mash set also from Happy Little Stampers and finally finished the card with some glitter enamel dots.

  4. What a great watercolour technique Juhi. I have never tried Gelatos but they look so vibrant and pretty. I love the contrast of the black stamping and card - very stylish!
