The size watercolor paper I buy often leaves me with narrow scraps that are hard to use after I've cut it up for my watercolor images. I've finally found a good use for these scraps as dimensionals. Sometimes I want to pop something off the face of a card or scrapbook page just a little - not as much as a spongy dimensional. Using a layer of another material - like watercolor paper - between layers of cardstock gives me that little bit of space. You could also use some scrap chipboard.
- This design is for Splitcoaststampers Clean and Simple cards challenge. The only stamped image allowed was a sentiment. I just wanted to use up some scrap designer paper.
- I marked vertical lines on my card base to guide placement of the little strips of scrap paper. The strips were 2" wide but only about 1 1/4" is showing.
- The watercolor strips are trimmed down to about 1/4" less than the aqua cardstock.
- I used Tombow Mono tape runner adhesive to hold the layers of watercolor paper and cardstock together.
