One design: Three ways.

Hi there!

I had so much fun in my craft room yesterday combining Silhouette cuts with watercolor, like I did last week with THIS card!

After I finished the first card with the colorful background, I used all the bits and pieces that were left over and created another watercolor background to use those pieces. It was almost like building a puzzle :)

I have cut an extra flower frame to use for the rough planning and positioning of the colors for my background. It picked up some of the colors from the background, and a third card was born!

So here's number one:

Number 2:

Number 3:

The collection:

I used distress inks, rubbed on a piece of acetate , spritzed  with water. and smooshed the paper onto the acetate. I repeated the process several times until I had something I thought can work.

I added a birthday sentiment from Altenew, stamped with Versafine ink and my Misti.

The Calla Lilies are a design from Tanya Batrak Design ID #208553, in the Silhouette store. I cropped the image by welding a frame to it.

I have this perception that Calla Lilies are "funeral flowers" but decided to break away from that thought  and use happy colors to make birthday cards!

Love the way all 3 cards turned out... I would love to hear which one is your favorite ?

Birthday card

Hi there!

When I saw the lovely new dies released at Simon Says stamp, it reminded me of a cutting file I had in my Silhouette library. I challenged myself to see if I can create something similar in the Silhouette studio.:)

The flower is called Fancy Flower by Tanya Batrak ( Design ID #147866 )

 I created a frame for the flower in the Silhouette studio, and 'welded' the flower and frame together to make this card:

I used distress inks to create the smooshed watercolor background and added a label sentiment I also designed in the studio, using the font : Impact label.

It's been quite a while since I last shared a sentiment... so here it is :) You are welcome to use it on your projects! (right click & save to your device)
