08-30-20…..Happy Sunday, everyone! Today, I’m excited to share a card that I created using a watercolor technique, along with the Playful Alphabet Dies! I hope my card will inspire you just a bit, and you have fun experimenting with the with this fun technique! I would love to see what you create!
For this card, I started with some Whisper White Cardstock, embossed it with the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder, and adhered it a slightly larger piece of Whisper White Cardstock, and used a few Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it to a Daffodil Delight Cardstock base.
To create the colorful paper that I used with the Playful Alphabet Dies, I started with a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper. I misted the paper with my Stampin’ Spritzer, and then used a Water Painter to add some Crushed Curry, Granny Apple Green, and Bermuda Bay to the paper. I misted the paper again, allowing the colors to run together, added more color where needed, and used a Heat Tool to dry the paper. I also added some speckling by “flicking” the thick of my Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends Marker against the edge of the marker cap. (Place the tip of the marker on the inside edge of the cap, and “flick” outward towards your paper.)
I used the Playful Alphabet Dies to cut out my letter from my watercolored paper, and adhered them with several Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. (I cut the Dimensionals in smaller pieces so that they would fit on the back of the letters.)
The sentiment (from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set) was heat-embossed on Basic Black Cardstock, using my Versamark Pad and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. After I cut out the sentiment, I popped it up with a few more Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also added a Black/White Baker’s Twine (from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack), and sprinkled on a few Whale of a Time Sequins.
