Global Stamping Friends Bloghop - Anything but a Card!

Hello and welcome! Today I am participating in a global blog hop with other Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world. This month's theme is Anything But A Card and since I love pocket page scrapbooking I just had to share this one:

Lovely as a Tree stamp set is so versatile! The pine tree was perfect for a watercolour technique for this pocket page. After inking the pine tree with Emerald Envy ink I spritzed it with water and then stamped onto the watercolour paper. That created the darker more smooched trees. For the other versions I inked up the stamp, stamped it on my grid paper and then spritzed it with water before stamping on the watercolour paper. It's fun to try different combinations of ink saturation and water saturation! To get the splatters I used my Aquapainter and Emerald Envy ink and tapped the Aquapainter to spray the colour onto the watercolour paper. After it was dry, Wink of Stella was added to give the trees some shimmer.

Supplies
Stamps: Lovely As A Tree
Colours: Emerald Envy, Whisper White, Tranquil Tide, Basic Black
Accessories: Watercolour paper, Basic Black Bakers Twine, Layering Circles Framelits, Seasonal Layers Framelits, Lovely Words Thinlits, Wink of Stella, Aquapainter, Memories and More Journal Pens, Softly Falling Textured Embossing Folder
