Watercolor “Bokeh” easily!

July 5, 2020

Hi,  Joyce Schmidt here! I am so happy to spend this year designing with Elizabeth Craft Designs!

When I think of photography the first technique that come to my mind is the “bokeh” technique. This phenomenon occurs when too much light enters the lens and the picture is blurry, but the beautiful circles of light that are left are beautiful! I wanted to replicate that using watercolor.

Here’s how I created the Bokeh backgrounds:

1. Cut six pieces of Elizabeth Craft Designs watercolor paper into two 4×5″ pieces.

2. I used a washi tape (or painter’s tape) to tape a border around my yardstick and to hold it down as a frame for the background. (tip: this makes your piece look cleaner but it is not essential.)

This is how I prep my card stock to paint this technique

3. Saturate the paper with clean water and a soft brush. You want the paper to be really wet layer color on a little at a time so that the colors and blend with the water.

Layer color on a little at a time so that the colors and blend with water.

4. I used my Elizabeth Craft Designs watercolor set to drop on color allowing it to spread onto the paper naturally. All you do at this point is watch is spread and add color or water as you want.

5. After it is completely dry, then use stencil to create dots. I created a stencil with different sizes of circles so that I could replicate the bokeh look. It needs to have many different sizes no bigger that 1.5″ in diameter.

6. Use a good quality white pigment ink and sponge dauber the ink into the circles, overlapping them and variegating the intensity of the ink you add to each circle.

7. After completing your bokeh dots, dry completely with heat tool. this will allow you to not smear your dots!

8. To complete the card I stamped it with the “You got this” stamp from Sue Smith’s collection of Stamp from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

For more information on how to do this technique, make sure to watch my video tutorial HERE.

I hope you feel inspired to try this fun technique yourself. Choose some pretty colors and create your own Bokeh background – The possibilities are endless!

Hello Sunshine

March 29, 2020

We can all use a little sunshine in our lives right now. It’s Sandy Diller here with you today. I just received my ECD Watercolors in the mail and had to use them right away. I am not a watercolor artist by any stretch of the imagination, I’m a crafter. That being said, I had lots of fun creating this card and love how bright and sunny it is.

There are some fun details to share with you – so let’s get started!

I began with the ECD Watercolor Paper. It is 4″ wide so it’s perfect for an A2 card.

I put the paper in my Misti tool and placed this lovely background stamp where I wanted it. The stamp is much bigger than the paper so it was positioned where I have the images I want. The stamp was inked up with VirsaMark ink and stamped. I added white embossing powder then heat set it.

Since I’m new to watercolor, I had to go out to the garage and find a board that would work. I found an old shelf from a wall unit we no longer have so it was perfect for this use. The shelf is laminated – so it’s great for watercolor. The paper was taped to the board in order to keep it flat. OK, ready to go!

The watercolor set comes with a water brush so mixing up the paint couldn’t be easier. I simply dropped some water on the color. The only extra thing I needed was a piece of paper towel. I covered the entire embossed image with pink and then dropped a little yellow here and there. Then came the hardest part, waiting for it to become completely dry.

Once the background was dry, I began painting the additional colors on the flowers and leaves. When adding the additional colors, you will see how the pink and yellow base coat combines with the new colors. Then once again, wait for it to dry.

While my watercolor panel was drying I gathered up the rest of the card elements. I made the base of the A2 card by cutting a panel from a pretty yellow cardstock that was 5.5″ by 8.5″ and then scored down the center. Using the Rounded Stitched Rectangles – a white panel and then the watercolor panel was cut. “hello sunshine” was stamped and then cut with the Stitched Fishtail Banner die set. Now all we need is easy assembly for a bright and sunny card.

Once everything was dry, some clear ECD Craft Drops were added. Weather you are an artist or crafter, this watercolor set is something you will want to add to your supplies.

Thanks for joining me today,

Sandy

You are my Guiding Light and how to create custom-made Sentiments

March 25, 2020

Hi there,

it’s Tanja here and today I would like to show you how to create this card and how to make your own custom-made sentiments:

Step 1: Die Cutting

  • die cut a background panel and a wave border from watercolor paper with one of the Stitched Rectangles and one of the Ocean Edges
  • die cut the Lighthouse elements from white Soft Finish Cardstock

Step 2: Add Color

  • color the background with Distress Oxide Ink (Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans) and a Blending Brush
  • add water droplets for more texture
  • add color to the wave border with Distress Oxide Ink (Salty Ocean, Chipped Sapphire) and add some splatters with watered-down Distress Oxide Ink Chipped Sapphire
  • for the seafoam ink up the edge of the wave border with Versamark and heat-emboss it with WOW! Seafoam White embossing powder
  • color the lighthouse with Alcohol Markers

Step 3: Assembly and Finishing Touches

  • assemble the Lighthouse and the background – use clear double-sided adhesive and liquid glue
  • add white highlights with a white gel pen

Step 4: Create a custom-made Sentiment

  • there a several ways to create custom-made sentiments: you can use calligraphy or just your handwriting or a Labelmaker … in this case I used a Vintage Typewriter to type my sentiment onto sturdy white cardstock
  • cut the sentiment apart and ink up the edges with Distress Oxide Ink Pumice Stone
  • adhere the panel to a grey cardbase

I hope you got inspired.
