Here's today's card -
Watercolour Card cut into 2 x A5 pieces. I added 10 drops of Citrus Lime, Deep Plum and Rose Pink CS Intense Pigment Stains to 3 Mister Bottles filled with water. I misted all 3 colours onto 1 piece of the Watercolour Card. I misted a little plain water on top and then placed the other piece of Watercolour Card on top. I peeled the pieces of card apart and blotted excess off with Kitchen Roll. I kept my second piece for another project (tomorrow's post).
Working on my first piece, I placed the Puerto Rico Blocks Mask on one half and misted through with water. I lifted the mask off and turned it over and placed on the other half of my background to get a negative water print. I blotted off with Kitchen Roll. I then misted through a section of the Prism Effect Mask with the Citrus Lime. I turned it over to get a negative print from the excess ink in another section of my background and blotted off with Kitchen Roll. I repeated in another area of my background. Finally, I repeated the process with Deep Plum and the Tzar Mask.
I cut Sue Wilson's Celebrations Shadow Box out of Coconut White Card and added it to my background using CE Mounting Cushion. I added a frame cut from Coconut White Card using dies#4 and #5 from Sue's Stitched Square Peg Board Die Set. I matted onto Coconut White Card, Black Card and then another piece of Coconut White Card.
I used the Triple Happy Birthday die cuts left over from yesterday's card all around my Shadow Box.
Craft Sheet. I used them neat and painted onto Coconut White Card. I cut the elements from the Shadow Box and the So Many Candles Sentiment from them. I cut the plain dies for the candle and hat out of Coconut White Card, colouring in the flames using Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade Distress Markers.
I completed my card by adding an 8mm White Pearl to each corner.
