Watercolor Collage

Well hello there, I’m so happy you’ve stopped by today! I’m sharing what I call a “watercolor collage”, using stamps and dies from Neat and Tangled, as well as products from Hemptique. This post is part of a special collaboration between the Hemptique and Neat & Tangled teams.

Hemptique has some beautiful handmade papers available in their store, which I have used here on this card. I love the rough texture of this paper; much like watercolor paper, but a lot softer in feel.

I stamped images from the My Heart Sings Neat & Tangled set onto the paper with Versafine Black Onyx ink; I also gold stamped my sentiment using the Paris stamp set (also by Neat & Tangled) and Delicata Golden Glitz ink.

For watercoloring, I used Tim Holtz distress inks; Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry. I also watercolored some hearts and added a bit of shimmer using a Wink of Stella glitter brush.

I decorated my panel using a mixture of sequins and beads from Lucy’s Little Things and Neat & Tangled; I also tied a length of hemp around the bottom portion of the panel and adhered a gold, wooden heart on top. The wood heart was created by die cutting a piece of wood veneer with a heart die from Neat & Tangled (included in the Hand Stitched die set); I colored it gold by smooshing it into my Delicata Golden Glitz ink pad.

To finish things off, I layered my watercolored panel onto a pink striped card base with some yellow pattern paper.
