Today I’m sharing a card with you that I’m just a tiny bit obsessed with. It all started when I watched this video from the amazing Laura Bassen, and I decided I needed to master the use of the Polygon Cover Plate Die from Neat & Tangled. Today I have a tutorial showing you how I made this card using Distress Inks and some watercolor techniques. I am not a painter, but this stuff is seriously so fun once you get started. I keep making watercolor panels, even though I literally have no plans for them.
The Love Your Guts above card is also featured today on the Simon Says Stamp blog. I wanted to share the process behind the card here today!
You should know this: I am not a card making expert! I could have done this much more quickly by not even bothering to cut out all the pretty watercolor bits. I just got an email from a very smart cookie who said, “…just glue the white die cut frame onto the painted water color background, run that through your die cut machine to flatten, trim off the edges and adhere to the card base.” I just wanted to have all those little bits flush perfectly with the white frame. But hey, I’m still having fun and learning!
