It's day 2 of my PTI parade...I sat down and finally inked up my new PTI goodies, yesterday was the Phrase Play stamp/die, today is Circle Scribbles:
This is definitely one of those learning cards....I found the technique over on the Neat and Tangled blog by Yana...HERE is the post.
I'm super weird about my watercolor papers...whether it is my Fabriano cards or the large watercolor pads that you can get at the craft store. It's one supply that I save every single piece of scrap and work hard at making things work and not to waste anything.
Well, if I would have re-watched the video, rather than winging it ( ← I wing it too much), I would have realized that Yana created her watercolor background before stamping on it.
Mister Huey's Sherbet/Splash & Garden
...like I said, it's all a learning process and I didn't feel the need to re-do the card, I'm really loving the movement of the colors, just not necessarily happy with how the Zing embossing 'took to it'.
note to self:
create watercolor background first and then heat emboss with white.
This is when I tell you that Darin loves this card and was quite impressed with the technique (Thanks Yana!)...he joked that I should be one to paint the airplane...ooohhhh....watercolored look...wouldn't that be awesome?
The sentiment is by Reverse Confetti.
I originally was going to mount the panel on PTI kraft but it seems to dark and heavy so I went ahead and cut out a full size panel from my watercolor stash.
I was inspired by
and or course
REALLY excited for Virginia's View Challenges...they are going to pull me out of my comfort zone and that's what we all need to grow.
