One of the new sets that I just had to have is this adorable Mouse Tea Party. I used the emboss resist technique to stamp a strip of background to "ground" my images.
I started by masking off a strip of white cardstock with painters tape, white heat embossing the small images (butterflies, flowers, greenery) in this set, and blending Broken China Distress Oxide Ink over the images. After Copic coloring my mice, I used the Mouse Tea Party Frame Cuts to cut out my images. I added them to my emboss resist strip with foam adhesive and stamped my sentiment.
My next card uses the NEW Deep Ocean Liquid Watercolor. Using a piece of Bristol Smooth watercolor paper, I did a wash of clean water and then dropped color in and let the water do it's thing. Before it was completely dry, I laid a paper towel over the panel and lifted some of the color. The result was perfect!
For the focal point, I used the Color Layering Butterflies Bundle (includes stamps, dies, ink). I used the green inks in this bundle for the larger butterfly and the inks from Kelly's Flowers and Jayne's Blush. I stamped all of them using my mini Misti. To finish, I used the Hello Stamp & Cut set for my sentiment.
Now for those NEW liquid watercolors.......you need them. Here they are all together.......gorgeous!
