Two index cards for you today…

The first one is super simple and uses a technique I’ve been meaning to play with but always seems to get put on the back burner. Amy Tangerine originally did it  with watercolours but I broke out my Twinkling H2O’s, of course!

I didn’t use gesso first so getting the paint to move proved to be a bit of a challenge but I really like how it turned out. Once that part was done, I didn’t want to cover it all up and so was a little stumped as to what to do next. I googled quotes and found this one which seemed perfect. I printed it out on Martha Stewart kraft stickers labels and adhered it, then inked the card edges and was done.

I finally got a picture of all the shimmer and shine that are in Twinkling H2O’s! Isn’t it amazing?

My second card got gessoed and heat set to make bubbles, then had all sorts of stuff thrown at it until some combination worked! There’s some stamping, some misting, and some Twinkling H2O’s. Add in the paper piecing and word stickers and we’re done!

I love how this finally turned out and am really glad I went back at the last second to paper piece the last top hat man.

Back tomorrow with another one! And there’s another post today so if you missed Tuesday Techniques, scroll down!
