Using Stampin' Up's New Water Painters

Hi Everyone. Today I wanted to play around with the new 'Water Painters' from Stampin' Up!  These new water painters replace the 'Aqua Painters' from previous catalogs.  I LOVED the Aqua Painters, so when I saw they were being replaced I had to put the new version on my first order. I was curious to find out if they lived up to the older version and I am happy to announce that they do! And, the new set comes with a set of 2 round brushes AND a flat wash brush!  The set of three Water Painters are just $12.00.  I used the flat wash brush for a variety of backgrounds and it worked so smoothly, I was really pleased with it.  I made several backgrounds and used them for some Birthday cards.  All the cards use the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set.  I really like this stamp set because of the "Happy (a little bit late) Birthday.  I try to be timely but I must admit that I am often a few days late with my birthday cards! This stamp is perfect for me!
Here is a video of how to make this simple watercolor backgrounds.

 This first card uses the wide flat wash brush to make some stripes on the background.  This card uses Night of Navy and Magenta Madness.  The cute tiny flowers are from the new Confetti Flowers Border Punch.  The sentiment is embossed in white embossing powder.

This second card also uses the Confetti Flowers Border punch. The colors for this card are Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay, and Night of Navy.  I used an emboss resist technique on this card.
 This next card uses the Wink Of Stella pen to achieve some fun splatter patterns.  The colors here are Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay, and Gorgeous Grape.   The sentiment is embossed on Basic Black.

This card uses  Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape, and BlackBerry Bliss for the background. I added some sequins from the Artistry Blooms Sequin assortment. I used an emboss resist techniuqe on this card. 

I made a couple additional cards using some scraps of water color paper that I made while practicing with the Water Painters. This card uses the watercolored paper under a die cut from the Stitched Triangles dies.

This last card also uses the Stitched Triangles dies.  These dies are really fun and I can't wait to show you them in more detail in a future video.

I hope that you will check out these new brushes. I am sure that you are going to love them.
