Ellen Hutson/Avery Elle Watercolor Mini Blog Hop

Hello!  We are so excited to be hopping along with our friends at Ellen Hutson today.  We are featuring projects using our NEW Liquid Watercolors and are SO excited to show them off in action.  Avery Elle’s liquid watercolors come in 10 gorgeous shades that can be used on their own or easily mixed together to create custom colors.  For an intense shade use the watercolors straight out of the bottle.  If you want lighter shades, just add various amounts of water to get the color you desire.  The possibilities are endless.  Be sure to check out all of the details of the hop as well as how to be entered to win one of TWO FULL SETS of our Avery Elle Liquid Watercolors over on the Ellen Hutson Classroom Blog.

 

So let’s carry on with the hop.  You should have arrived here from the amazing world of Julie Ebersole (major fangirl here).  If you’re lost and want to get back to the start, the list is all the way down at the bottom of this post!

I have been having SO much fun with these watercolours since I got them and just love their versatility.  If, like me you’ve jumped on the latest alcohol ink trend then I you may be interested to know that a lot of similar, but more subtle results can be achieved with these water colours.  Grab a cuppa and watch this short video to see what I mean 🙂

Avery Elle … SPLASH

Hey there,I’m over on the Avery Elle Blog today starting off a week of inspiration featuring the Splash clear stamp set and co-ordinating Elle-ments.  Lately I’ve been having a LOT of fun with the new Avery Elle Liquid Watercolours (look out for a video coming very soon) and have created a perfect backdrop for my chilled out bathing beauties!

I used a thin Yupo paper (picked it up on Amazon) and spritzed it with a fine spray of water before adding Aquamarine liquid watercolour onto it with a paintbrush.  I wasn’t too careful or precise as I wanted the background to have some movement and appear more … watery!  The paper was put aside to dry naturally which does take a bit of time so it’s a good idea to create a few background panels in advance so you have them on hand and ready when you want to put a card together!
I stamped a couple of ladies and their floaties of choice onto Neenah white cardstock and coloured them with Copics and then die cut them.  I glued the dried watercoloured panel onto a white A2 card front (landscape orientation) and then added the ladies and a few clear droplets here and there.  I finished of by cutting a strip of aquamarine coloured card and white heat embossed the Birthday Wishes sentiment from the Critter Crew set and tied it off with some Aquamarine twine.

Avery Elle … Large Pierced Scallops Elle-ments

Hello, today I’m sharing a card featuring the new Large Pierced Scallops Elle-ments.  This collection of dies has so many uses but I particularly love how you can create a perfect frame for your 41/4x 5 1/2″ cards as well as a smaller frame.  I’m really into neutral colour schemes at the moment (maybe the time of year) so used a very natural palette for my card today.

I used Avery Elle Truffle Dye Ink for all my stamping and added some colour using Copics.  There are a couple of little dots in this set so I added some polka dots to the roof of my windmill – now I want to cover everything in polka dots!!!

I curved the sentiment on my MISTI so that it would follow the line in the banner and then used foam tape to give everything a wee bit of dimension.

Supplies used:

Large Pierced Scallops Elle-ments

Windmill Clear Stamps

Windmill Elle-ments

Picket Fence Elle-ments

Truffle Dye Ink
