For Day 2, we are showcasing the Newton’s Umbrella + Coordinating Dies with the Rainy Day Doxie + Coordinating Dies.
I started by stamping the images from Newton’s Umbrella and Rainy Day Doxie with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the images in with alcohol markers and used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out.
The background for this card was made by using a flat watercolor brush and my FAVORITE, Prima Mixed Media Pastel Dreams Watercolor Confections. Aren’t the colors to die for?! I basically just swiped the colors and used my Heat Gun to speed up the drying process. I adhered this panel on some top-folding notecard.
Next, I used the Land Border Die to die-cut two strips and foam-mounted this onto the card for added dimension. I adhered the focal image also with foam adhesive and liquid glue to secure it in the middle.
I finished my card design by stamping the sentiment from the Uplifting Wishes stamp set with some Versafine Claire Nocturne Ink.
The next project is exactly the same process, except that I added the Spring Blooms Pattern Paper onto the background, before adhering the watercolor panel. I only used the blue color from the Prima Mixed Media Pastel Dreams Watercolor Confections.
The texture was added using some “watered-down” Aged Mahogany Distress ink.
I finished the card design by adding the sentiment that was stamped on some back card stock with Versamark Ink, and heat set with the Heat Gun. I used the Banner Trio Die to die-cut the strip and adhered to the card with liquid glue.
