Throwback Thursdays with PPP


Hello (again)!!  I am so excited to be sharing a new monthly feature over on the Pretty Pink Posh blog called 'Throwback Thursdays with Amy".  I could just pinch myself at the opportunity!  It's a time for me to showcase an older product with so many creative uses!

Pretty Pink Posh

I am starting off my feature with a fun die called Peek-a-Boo die which was released last year.  When I was coming up with a design using this die, I could not get the image of Morning glories out of my mine.  (That's ok if you don't see it.....just go with it for me!)  I diecut the Peek-a-Boo die multiple times in a random pattern onto Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock.  Using the die image as a guide, I watercolored Wild Honey, Hickory Smoke, and Broken China Distress Inks over the top.  I used lots of water to blend out the color so they weren't so vibrant.  Once this panel was completely dry, I adhered it with foam adhesive to a top folding notecard.  


For my senetiment, I used a "thanks" die from Simon Says Stamp diecuttin git out of Broken China Distress inked watercolor paper as well.  I love that the sentiment extends across my watercolor background!  As for those sequins?  I had to use my favorite Sparkling Cear Sequins in 4mm and 6mm to finish this off!


Thanks so much for sharing a part of your day with me!  I'll be back next month with another older die showcase!
