Make it Monday #256 Papertrey Ink

Once I got over the shock of Melissa making a one layer card 🙂 , I started to look through my stamps to see which one I could use to spritz watercolour.

My first attempt was using the snowshoe and sled from Two Feet Deep.  Both items were shades of brown and just seemed so dull when I watered them down.  Attempts to add brightness and shine seemed off the mark, so I started over again.

This card is the result.  I think I like it better although the snowshoe one is growing on me.

Just for comparison, here is the Sled/Snowshoe one.

  2. Two fabulous cards here Deb! A snowy card in this heat and humidity sounds pretty good right about now. I can’t wait to try this technique!

  3. I like both of them. Your spritzing is perfect for that watercolor look. I had some trouble getting the right amount of water.

    How did you do the stitching on the first card?

    • It is a cross-stitch rectangle die (set of different sizes) from Memory Box. Selena was able to bring in a similar set from Lawn Fawn for a customer if you are interested.

  5. Both cards are just beautiful, Deb. Spritzing sure gives cards a whole new dimension with a watercolored look.

  6. Two beautiful cards Deb! Your apple turned out fabulous and I love the plaid background…makes me think of starting school and COOLER temperatures! And I think your 2nd winter card turned out just as pretty…sometimes we really are our worst critics!!

    • You are very kind. I seem to be always critical of anything I do that it is a loose style. I just need to do more of it I guess, to get comfortable with the lack of control. Where i live we have had rain rain rain so today’s sunshine is very welcome.
