Today's card has been inspired by Loll over at
Here is a video link to The Splash Water Colouring Technique...
This technique would be great for backgrounds
but I wanted to try it in a different way.
As soon as I saw, a new to me technique, I'm in....
I started by cutting a stencil with a die cut
and then had fun splashing my distress inks,
drying in between, which the masking paper did not like and kept creeping up...
I popped the fairy mask on and hi-lighted the wings firstly with gold acrylic paint.
I then spread some gold stickles onto my mat
and using a paintbrush hi-lighted further.
I always forget to use the stickles this way.
I stamped the crackle effect at the bottom of the card and heat embossed in gold,
finishing with stamping the sentiment in black first and then gold on top.
I have had this sentiment a little while and not used it
but when I got this new die, I thought they went so well together....
I was quite surprised that I only had some seepage,
especially with the masking paper creeping up.
I had fun with this technique and thank you Loll for the inspiration to give it a try.
