Hello everyone! I have a technique to share using E-Z Dots® Repositionable Refillable Dispenser and watercolors to make a watercolor dots card. This card has an abstract and kind of funky background! Let your imagination run wild with this technique!
As you can see my background is pretty abstract and funky!
How to Use E-Z Dots Repositionable as a Mask
First, I placed my E-Z Dots® Repositionable Refill in my E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser (All the E-Z Runner refills can be used in any of the E-Z Runner Refillable dispensers). I used it to apply wavy lines of adhesive over a piece of mixed media paper. I chose that paper because it handles moisture well. Watercolor paper could also be used. I placed it on scrap paper so I could run the adhesive off the edge. The E-Z Dots are being used as a mask, not as an adhesive!
Then I brushed on watercolor, starting with blue.
Then added yellow…..
and rusty orange…
I dried it with a heat gun and then rubbed off the E-Z Dots® Repositionable adhesive with my finger. Just a gently swirl removes the dots to reveal the white paper.
Replace the E-Z Runner Ultra refill into the E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser and use it to fasten it to a white card.
Stamp the verse with black ink on white cardstock. After I cut out the pieces, I brushed rusty orange watercolor along the edges. The verse pieces were fastened with E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser. The narrow adhesive line is perfect for small pieces!
To finish the card, I added black accent lines at edges of the verse pieces with Neon Amplify! Simple card design with fun background!
Here are 2 cards with plaid looking backgrounds using the same technique.
I challenge you to have fun with this technique!
