New Plastic Wrap Watercolor Technique with Pigment Sprinkles and Beautiful Day Stamp Set - Stampin Up

The other day I ran across a YouTube video from K Werner Design where she used plastic wrap over watercolor paints to create a kind of tie-dyed look. Today I wanted to try that same technique but with the Pigment Sprinkles and some other of my favorite products that are retiring on June 2, 2020. I love strong graphic images and the butterfly and flower from the Beautiful Day Stamp Set really make a card pop when used with this watercolor technique. I would love to see your finished creations that are inspired by this tutorial! You can tag me in any social media post using @creativechelsey or #creativechelsey.

Plastic Wrap Watercolor Technique
1- Begin with a piece of plastic wrap. Scrunch it up a little to create wrinkles. Sprinkle Pigment Sprinkles over the area about the size of your paper and spray with water.
2- Place paper on top. Fold up the sides of the plastic wrap. Turn over and move the water and color around with your fingers. Keep the wrinkles. Set aside for a minute to let the color soak into the paper.
3- Unwrap and let dry or use a heat tool.
Create the card:
1- Use the Embossing Buddy or a dryer sheet to remove static from the paper you want to stamp the butterfly or flower on. Stamp with the Stamparatus so you can double stamp with VersaMark to make sure you getting a good image.
2- Add your choice of Black or White embossing powder. Tap off excess, and heat with heat tool. Repeat the stamping and embossing so you have 2 images.
3- Fussy cut out the images.
4- If using Black cardstock as your background use the Aqua Painters and White Craft Ink and add some splatters on the top.

5- Place the black white stripe strip on the left or right / top and bottom of the 3 ½” x 5” piece. Add to your card base.

6- Wrap the metallic thread around your hand 5X and adhere to the back of both butterfly (silver) or flowers (rose). Add these to your card with dimensionals. Trim off any part that is off the cardbase.

7- On Black Cardstock stamp your greeting in VersaMark Ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder. Fussy cut. Place in an open area on your card with dimensionals.

8- Use Wink of Stella to add a little glimmer over the butterfly / flower images.

All Done!
