MFT September Release Replay

It's time for My Favorite Things Release Replay, when the design team 
shares fresh ideas and more inspiration using the latest release.

I love Release Replay because it gives me a chance to get out of my comfort
zone and try something new. I chose to play with the Big Hello Die-namics
 and use watercoloring as the coloring medium. I was also trying to channel
my teammate Yoonsun, who is so gifted at watercoloring.

I wet two sheets of watercolor card stock with clean water and painted both
sheets with Distress inks, making them nearly identical on color placement.
I wasn't too concerned if the colors blended on their own.

I die cut the sentiment three times from one panel and adhered it to the
second watercolored panel. I popped in some of the letters, but not all of them,
for a bit of interest. Both panels were cut with the rectangle element from
Blueprints 25 and adhered to a card base. I finished off the card with some
white ink spatters and white Nuvo Crystal Drops.

  1. Oh that's a very cool card! Sounds like a fun technique! Good for you to step out of your comfort zone and try something new, but this card is still very "Donna" to me! And that's a good thing! :)

  2. I so like this design idea! Those Nuvo drops add a nice touch, mimicking the water drops.

  3. This card is AWESOME! Your technique is very clever. I'm going to stash that idea away in my toolbox. ;-)

  4. Woweeee! A great card and one I'll have to remember to try out sometime. Amazing!
