Hi everyone! June is flying by just like these butterflies! I had so much fun revisiting the napkin die cutting and painting technique by Memory Box owner, Dave.
You’ll find the video HERE.
I did it just like he did except this time I used Distress Ink refills for the paint. I used a drop of refill ink and drops of water, sometimes more, sometimes less.
Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters and Forest Moss.
I used Gansai Tambi gold watercolor for the gold accents, I’ll link everything below.
The A2 cardbase doubles as the background. I inked it with the NEW Speckled Egg Distress Oxide with a little Tumbled Glass Oxide brushed on also.
Then water droplets, dried with the heat tool, then spattered with White Distress Oxide Spray. I just unscrew the bottle and tap the ink off the tube with a paintbrush a few times. I dried again with the heat tool because I wanted to finish putting the card together.
I used the thin mounting squares cut in half to mount the frame die cut and a few behind the leaves.
The sentiment from the Peony Garden Corner stamp set is heat embossed on black TE Oreo cardstock and cut out with the Scan and Cut machine.
I’m linking to some challenges…
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – anything goes
Simon Says Stamp Instagram Challenge for June – Ink blending
Happy Little Stampers – anything goes with dies
This card is perfect for this time of year! We’ve had plenty of rain and everything is so GREEN! The sky is so blue! Still no hydrangeas on my three bushes though. hmmmm I hope you don’t tell me I have to go talk to them! lol
Fun to be back sharing with you… I have a couple more cards coming soon! Thank you for clicking over!
Here’s what I used to make this card…
