Vibrant Love


I really like the camouflaging diecuts technique that I saw over on PTI Make It Monday.  Oh my, that was back in mid-December but feels like yesterday.  And I wonder why I miss so many card challenge deadlines--LOL!  But not this time.  I am entering this in a few card challenges including The Card Concept; this style I would call clean and layered due to the stacked die cuts and having to mount the watercolor paper on a card stock base.

I did a watercolor wash of 3 colors of Distress Inks and set that aside to dry.  It needs to be dry because if you try to diecut it while still damp, it gets wacky, trust me. I cut out the word 4 times and stacked them before putting them back.  It's a cool effect.  I then added the stenciled floating hearts and the sentiment.

The Details:  PTI Love die (I think), Sweet Stamp Shop Across the Miles partial sentiment, Tim Holtz watercolor paper, Distress Ink Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick and Festive Berries, Recollections 110 lb cardstock base, Heidi Swapp stencil, Memento Tuxedo Black

I'm entering this in Inkspirational #74 Ombre, TIME OUT #23 Valentine's Day w Optional Hearts, The Card Concept #27 Love,
