If you are looking for the Color My Heart Color Dare #94 card please go here.
There is a nautical theme challenge at Cards 4 Guyz and a Maritime theme challenge at Keep it Simple that interested me so I combined this theme with the current Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch #167 that I really like. I've been taking the Online Card Class for Watercolors so I chose to paint my background instead of using strips of paper (although I do plan to try this sketch with patterned paper soon).
First thing I did was put Versamark ink on the positive side of a Cuttlebug folder. Next I pressed the Bristol paper against it and rubbed with my fingers and then sprinkled Clear Embossing Powder on it and heat set it.
Masking tape was applied to create the white area while I painted the stripes from four different Close To My Heart ink pads. (Acrylic block stamped with ink and then spritzed with water to create the "watercolor paint".)
