Crafter's Companion's AquaTint Pens


This is my second post today, click here if you are looking for my Art Impressions post!

I'm stopping by with a card I made featuring Crafter's Companion products that were available earlier this month on HSN. I just checked HSN and it looks like the whole bundle of AquaTint pens are still available! Yay!! You can find more information about the pens themselves on Spectrum Noir's website!

I started by running some watercolor cardstock in the Brocade embossing folder through my die cutting machine. Then I added Amethyst, Pink Garnet, Aquamarine AquaTint ink to a piece of acetate. If you don't use all the ink, let it dry and you can reactivate it with water down the road!!

With a wet paintbrush, I added water to the embossed panel, then added each of the colors to the panel. I wanted the color to be intense, but you could, of course, add water to the ink to light the color. I added water here and there as needed to help the ink spread and mix with each other. When I was happy with the panel I set it aside to dry.

Next, I stamped the Thank You So Much and heat embossed it in white on a strip of black cardstock. The sentiment came from the Joyful Phrases stamp set.

When my panel was dry, I trimmed it up so it would be 1/4 inches smaller than an A2 card base. I added it to the black card base with liquid adhesive and then added the sentiment strip with foam tape. Last I added a few black enamel dots.
