Today I have a card using a technique I’m calling mosaic watercolouring, or should that be spotlight watercolouring? Hmmm, hopefully, you can see where I’m going with this anyway. I selectively watercoloured areas of the Centre Cut Kaleidoscope Background from Simon Says Stamp. I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used.
I started by stamping the Centre Cut Kaleidoscope Background in clear embossing ink on Arches Hot Pressed watercolour card and white heat embossed. Then using Daniel Smith watercolours, I selectively painted areas of the pattern in a soft blue and green colour combination.
I made sure to vary the depth of colour and tone as I painted different shapes within the pattern to give variety.
For the sentiment I stamped the Joy and matching greeting from the Stained Glass Greetings set by Simon Says Stamp in clear embossing ink and white heat embossed. I used the matching die to cut out the Joy and trimmed the coordinating sentiment into a skinny strip.
I cut the panel with a Wonky Rectangle and mounted it onto a Desert Storm card base. I then added a Maryanne and Kate snowflake which I die cut from white card, rubbed with Ranger Multi Medium Matte and dunked in Rock Candy Distress Glitter. I foam mounted the sentiment pieces over the snowflakes and then accented with a few Snowfall sequins.
