So for today...I thought I would show you a quick step-by-step overview of how I made this card. By watercoloring my die cut, I can transform this from a silhouette and bring attention to certain areas of the resulting image if I want to.
Watercolored Die Cuts:
- Gather Supplies: You'll need a die cut image cut from heavy weight card stock or watercolor paper, Distress Inks or Markers, and a paint or aqua brush. I've used, the Birds & Branches Frame die, Wplus9 White card stock, and the Heartfelt Holiday and Strictly Sentiments 4 stamps sets to create this card.
- Press ink onto acrylic block, dilute with water and brush onto tree branches with paint brush. I've used Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo Distress Inks.
- Repeat the same process for the leaves. I've used the Crushed Olive Distress Marker.
- Keep repeating this process to paint the remaining areas. I've used the Tumbled Glass Distress Marker to color the blooms on the trees.
Once the Birds & Branches Die was dry, I adhered the frame to the front of my card base and stamped the sentiment from Strictly Sentiments 4.
At the bottom of the card I adhered the fussy cut foliage image from Heartfelt Holiday and stamped the sentiment from the Strictly Sentiments 4 to finish off my card.
I hope I have inspired you in using the new April Release products.
Have a Fabulous weekend creating :)
