3 Techniques To Add Splatter and Watercolor Effects without using ink or watercolor paints.

I’m still playing with my Nuvo Embellishment Mousse.  It is truly addictive.  Now I just want to see how much I can do with this medium.

It’s a challenge and I’ve accepted it!

For today, I had heard that you could watercolor with these mousses, so I had to give it a try. With my own twist!Stamping Imperfection Nuvo Embellishment Mousse Techniuqes2


The card I created for today has 3 fun techniques that are quick to add to your card.

I create a spray mist in a mini mister, then I added big splatter drops with a paint brush and finally, I watercolored a strip of paper with the colors.

Can you believe all the things you can do with this mousse?

I have so many more things to share with you over the next couple of days as well!!

The Create die is from Catherine Pooler Designs and the sentiment is from the Altenew Crafty Friends stamp set.

I created these little strips of watercolor rainbows stripes by adding water to a spatula of the mousse.  I mixed it to dissolve the mousse and then just used a paint brush to add the color to the paper.  When it dried, I got a lot of shine and texture.  I didn’t try to lay the color on perfectly. I left my brush strokes and I just loved the texture that I got when it dried.

I stamped over the dried mousse using Altenew permanent black pigment ink.  I tried StazOn as well since that is a permanent ink that works well on all surfaces.  Both inks stamped over the mousse.   I did end up embossing the bookmark with black embossing powder because I wanted it to be shiny.  I plan on laminating this and using it in my journal.
