Stretch Your Stamps #2 Day 1 Video #1

Here are my 4 cards based on Video #1 for day 1. This video was from Kristina Werner called

Multilayer Emboss Resist – Regular Background Stamps

 Here I used the background stamps from my day 1 video #3 cards  I heat embossed it with Hero Arts white embossing powder but first I used my anti static bag. I used good old Vera Mark ink.
 I used my Koi water colors in 3 different colors, a bright red, a bright orange, and a bright yellow. As you can see on the bright yellow on the bottom I put a heavy amount of the bright yellow in each shaped area and then I took a wide paint brush with some water and pulled up the color to meld with the orange.
 Finished piece after the first colors added, I let them air dry.
 Here is my second piece, I am using a bright green, a bright blue, and a bright purple. I do love these card classes because I tend to make multiples to build up my collection.
 After they have dried the first time I went in with the same bright colors and added them back to the one line for each. See the picture explains it better then my words.
 Here I am using the big you die from Simon Says Stamp.
 I am using the hello you stamp set from Simon Says Stamp as well, its on the right.
 I used my trusty Tombow Mono Multi Glue to adhere all my pieces to my projects, its a strong glue especially since I did water coloring.
 Its hard to see but here I am testing some black glitter glue and some black scribble 3D paint to see which I like better and with the silicone craft mat all I have to do is wipe it off with a baby wipe.
Finished 2 cards, I ended up going with the Scribbles 3D black paint, I applied a nice thick layer.

I did die cut the you four times from scrap black card stock and glued together to give extra dimension, I also corner rounded the bottom corners with my 1/2 inch corner rounder and used Versa Fine Black Onyx for my stamping.

Finished 2nd set of cards, I covered the water colored pieces with glossy accents. I also added the black strip to break up the water colored pieces.
Close up, again used Versa Fine Black Onyx ink for the stamping.
