Watercolor Wash Card: Window Shopping Stamp Set

Each year Stampin Up offers an Incentive Trip to Demonstrators that have accumulated a specific number of points based on sales.  The trips include airfare, accommodations, food, and some gifts.  This year's incentive trip was to Thailand so I chose colors that made me think of Asia and reminds me of pictures I have seen of Thailand in books and on TV.  I think hot, steamy and warm colors, like Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango and Melon Mambo with some Copper Foil for a bit of opulence.  One day I will be making that trip, I am shooting for the 2019 cruise of the Greek Isles.  

  Card Measurements:
 Melon Mambo base 5 1/2 x 4 1/
Crushed Curry layer 5 1/4 x 4
Shimmery White 3 3/4 x  5
Copper Foil paper 4 x 4
Whisper White  4 x 4

Technique Tip: Shimmery White paper can be treated like watercolor paper.  I used my aqua painter with Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo and Tangerine Tango inks to create this water colored background.  Be sure to spritz the paper with a bit of water before you start, it helps to spread the colors.   Let dry and then place under a heavy book to flatten.  The shimmer of the paper is still visible through the ink, I really love this Shimmery White cardstock.

I chose the sentiment from the Window Shopping stamp set because that is what Stampin Up is to me a great friend.  I have meet some fantastic and talented people.  It is a great community of folks that love to Create, Share and Inspire each other.
