Vintage Page Designs: Watercolored Dictionary Page

April 28, 2012

Watercolored Dictionary Page

It's busy, busy here at Vintage Page Designs.  I'm working on something new and exciting.....some Vintage Page Kits!  Look for a sneak preview tomorrow......

This past weekend, I got out the watercolor paints and covered some dictionary pages with color.  It was really fun!  Once the pages were dry, it was time for stamping.  I stamped images with Versmark ink and heat embossed them with a fine black embossing power.



The first card uses one of my all time favorite stamps from Crafty Individuals and a sentiment from Amuse.  Here's a closer look:


The second card uses the same watercolor on dictionary page technique with a Magenta image and some yummy vintage seam binding.



I'm entering these cards into several challenges:

Sunday Stamper - Summer Colors
Fashionable Stamping - Embossing
Crafty Individuals - Time for Summer
Inspiration Journal - Watercoloring

 Thanks for stopping by!  Come back tomorrow for some fun news.....

Love this, Ali. There's something so special about old paper. I have started a new miniature building, and it's taking up space in my brain these days as well as on my work table. I'm going to be doing some original art for this new place, so my collaging will be very small for awhile! I have some information posted on my blog and will try to post "work-in-progress" shots every week. Fun stuff. There might just be a little watercolor dictionary page there sometime... 8-)
