Water Color Robots

July 23, 2017

I was using blue ink on my acrylic block one day. When I was done, rather than cleaning it up, I sprayed some water and smooshed it on to a panel of water color card stock. I had used the side of the block with the etched in grid lines, it gave the panel some interesting texture.



Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began with my water color panel; I trimmed it down and rounded the corners. Then I stamped, colored and cut some images on a scrap of water color card stock. I used Distress Inks to stamp with and as water colors. While cutting, I left a small white border on everything.

Then, I began assembling my scene. I found a scrap of green card stock that I used to ground my robots. I adhered the robots and gift with foam tape. I adhered the balloons flat to the panel, but did let a few hang off the panel for interest.

Lastly, I adhered the water color panel to a grey card base.
