I've a couple of cards to share today (one's that didn't get picked up for a recent magazine call) using a water blending technique and dye inks. It's super easy. I stamped the houndstooth background (from Heirloom Patterns by Waltzingmouse Stamps) using a mix of Memento Danube Blue and Bahama blue and then just misted with water, I allowed it to bleed and let a few drops run to achieve the watercolor effect. I blotted any excess water with a paper towel.
I die-cut the tag using the Sizzix Tags Scalloped Combo #2 die and the sentiment is from Compact Sentiments Part 2 by Waltzingmouse Stamps. The Twinery Midnight Blue Navy & White twine is from SRM Stickers.
The flower I made using the Spiral Blossom One from Spellbinders and some layers of red tissue paper. The leaves I made using this leaf tutorial. I used the same technique to create the background paper for my second card. It really is a fun and easy technique.
I used the Dainty Doilies - Large Set from Waltzingmouse Stamps and a combo of inks - Memento Bahama Blue, Rose Bud and Lemon Yellow (Impress). I stamped all the doilies on a larger piece of card, then misted with water and blotted. Once dry I trimmed to fit my card.
The sentiment is from Compact Sentiments - Part 2 by Waltzingmouse Stamps. I added a few buttons as some extra detailing.
We finally got some snow today, we haven't had any in a couple of years! So Isabelle was really excited. Inspired by The Snowman and the Snowdog animation we made a little snowdog! : )
