As we'd been warned it was going to be very hot yesterday I decided to craft for just a short time in the morning and spend the afternoon watching Wimbledon.
I decided to do some batch card making so I die cut four of these 'spikey' circles with a die from an
X-cut set from watercolour paper.
I used Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed and Abandoned Coral Distress ink. I wiped some of each of the colours close together on my craft mat and spritzed with water. I waited a moment then pressed the circle onto the paper instead of swooshing it.
I wiped the ink off the craft sheet after each circle was coloured and re-applied the ink. Although I used the same three colours each time all four circles turned out different colours Here are just two examples.
I used a Hobby Arts sentiment stamping off the circle then I placed the circle onto some white card to find the right position. After removing the circle I stamped the sentiment onto the white card, and stuck the circle back, matching up the sentiment on both the circle and the white card. I trimmed the white card, mounted onto some black card and stuck my topper onto a 5 inch square card. I added the gems for sparkle and balance.
Thank you for stopping by. Please do come again.
