It's time for another Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge and the theme this fortnight is Favorite Technique. I absolutely love watercolor resist! For my first card I chose the Abstract Triangles stamp and some warm shades of Distress Ink to create a coppery design.
I had a stack of already cut out Sizzix Brenda Walton Peonies and decided to create a matching flower from my tutorial HERE. I used a Basic Grey brad to coordinate with the copper embossing. I just received the Autumn Blessings die in the mail and simply had to use it on this card. I used kraft core in copper.
I cannot get enough of these triangles! And I always enjoy using Fossilized Amber on anything!
For my second card I used my new Spring Flowers, embossed in white and watercolored. I applied all of the stamps in the set to a giant acrylic block to speed up the stamping/embossing process.
I fussy cut each design and then gave it a spray of Glimmer Mist, which you can see if you click to enlarge.
I raised the oval die to "frame" my arrangement, then sponged with Cracked Pistachio and stamped the stitches in the same color. The tiny "Hello" die by Sizzix was a gift from my dear friend Madelyn. Thanks Mad! You can see below how I barely glued the petals down to add some dimension. I hope you've enjoyed these projects. Thanks for your visit!
