Watercolored Caddy Bag

Welcome, I am so excited to share with you today!!!

This month on Eileen Hull's blog the team is using Eileen's Color Box Blends inks by Clearsnap®. The team is trying all different types of techniques. We would like to inspire you to try your Blends in different ways! So make sure you check Eileen Hull's Blog all month long for new techniques!

My thought was, "I wonder if the Blends would work like a water color?" 

YES! Yes they do and they look how awesome!

What you will need to make this project

Color Box Blends by Cleasnap®

  • Sunshine
  • Golden
  • Nutmeg
  • Beach
  • Leaf
  • Stop
iCraft Easy-Cut Adhesive
Watercolor Paper 
Permanent Ink - Black
Paint Tray
Stamendous Stamp Fran's - Daisy Thanks

Here is how I did it!

Using the Sizzix die Caddy Bag by Eileen Hull, I covered both sides of Sizzix Mat Board with iCraft Easy Cut Adhesive and adhered the watercolor paper. Once covered I cut it out.

Stamp your pieces using permanent ink. You don't want any smearing once your water is added.

Using my plastic paint tray, I sponged the Blends onto the tray and started to paint. I just dipped my brush into water and then picked up the color of choice with the wet brush. 

Here is how the layering began. I just started with the Sunshine, added Golden and shaded a bit with Nutmeg on each of the petals. Centers are Nutmeg with a touch of Ebony. Background is Beach. (wish I was at the Beach) LOL! I really wet my brush and added Beach to it and gave the pieces a splatter.

You can blend these together to make other colors! I made orange by mixing Stop and Sunshine! 

Works great! 

Look at those cute little note cards to put in the "Caddy"! I simply cut card stock 3 1/4" X 3". Took a swipe of water and Beach to the top corner, added a splatter and let dry and stamped sentiment.

I love!!! 


We all LOVE easy!

I hope you enjoyed the technique I fell in LOVE with! I sure hope you give it a try!
