Hello everyone!! I’m here today with Papertrey Ink’s Make it Monday #171: Pop Up Die Cuts, AAA Cards Game #10 Watercolor techniques and Virginia’s View Challenge #5
I’m so excited about this weeks challenges because they combine my two favorite things. Water-coloring and my all time favorite die, Life is Beautiful Butterfly die.
Yayyyyy, I get to use Watercolors for this challenge!!
Besty Veldman showed everyone how to use our dies to create partial cuts!!
Die Cut, perfect!
Take a look at my card:
I created a card like this in the past, when I was taking my Online Card Class on Water-coloring. It was fun so I decided to do it again with different colors, die, and sentiment. You can see my original card here.
To create the watercolor dots, I used a new pencil eraser to transfer the ink from the pad to the paper.
Then I die cut the butterfly over the dots. I only placed the cutting plates over the wing section of the butterfly. That way the body of the butterfly will stay in tack.
I stamped the sentiment and added some heart enamel dots.
Can you say pretty!!! I can!!! Creating this card was very easy and everyone should try water-coloring and partial die cutting.
So what do you think? Please leave a comment letting me know if you like my card creation today.
Thank you for stopping by and visiting me!
