Here’s another card we made in my Sympathy and No Sentiment Cards class.
We used my favourite technique for making a stunning background – watercolour smooshing! Apply the desired colours of ink to a clear block, spritz with some water and then smoosh the block onto some cardstock. We used Basic White, which works quite well for the straightforward technique. If you want to go on and manipulate it some more (adding more water, or colours or other media) I recommend using our Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper or even our Shimmery White cardstock. But for one quick smoosh Basic White works quite well.
Here it is with the optional sentiment. Using the Stitched Rectangles Dies was a quick way to make all the layers. I chose to add texture to the Balmy Blue layer with the Hive 3D Embossing Folder.
Here’s what we used to make this card. A quick note for anyone who’s interested in the Beauty Of Friendship stamp set and coordinating Beautiful Trees dies: the stamp set will be in the new Annual Catalogue but the dies are retiring…get them as a bundle while you can and save 10% in the process!
