Here's today's card which is a demo that I did on the recent Hochanda shows -
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.
Working on my first piece, I placed the Prism Effect 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 Tzar 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
This technique is adpated from a technique in the Dyan Reavely Distinctly Dylusional A Guide to Art Journaling Book (due in stock on my website very soon and available to order bere).
I cut the largest die in Sue Wilson's Ecliptic Edger into Coconut White Card 5 times to create a background. I glued it to my misted background using CS Glue in a Woodware Fine Tip Glue Applicator.
I made a frame out of Coconut White Card using dies #2 and #4 from the Square Stitched Peg Board Die Set and added it to my backgrounds using Woodware 3mm Foam Tape.
My sentiment has been created using the Alphabet Grid Die with Coconut Whte and Black Card. I added the tiles to my card using CE Mounting Cushion.
Pinwheel Floral Die Set.
Thanks for stopping by.
