For day 5 we are focusing on watercolored backgrounds. You know I love these, so I went right to work!
The twist is to use a die cut: first as a stencil and then as a die cut over the inking on the second card.
I used Fabriano Extra White watercolor card stock, and Distress Inks painted on with a brush for the colors.
For both cards I used the Inside and Out Berry Branch Die (The Greetery).
For the first card the die cut was used as a stencil. It was spattered with paint but when I removed it the leaves outline remained. I loved the way this turned out.
I took the stencil and adhered it over the background on the second card.
For both cards, I added accents of the die cut leaves in white to add brightness and texture. The lovely sentiments and coordinating die cut are from the Cotton Comforts set (The Greetery.)
Thanks for visiting!
