Sharing Framelit/Thinlit Tracing and Watercolor Technique by Carolina Evans

I was excited to try Carolina Evans technique of tracing around a framelit lightly with pencil, then watercoloring inside of it with ink and an aqua painter. I did that and a lot more to create this card.  After you do the watercoloring, dry with your heat tool so you can continue to stamp the inner and small butterflies. As those dry punch out the ribbon and try to create rounded corners. Stamp the sentiment with black stazon, then assemble the card. Finish with a coat of Wink of Stella on top of the inner butterflies. Easy to mail card!

Have fun experimenting with different framelits and color combinations.

Sharing the Misted Reinkers Technique by Dawn Olchefske with my 2 new colors combined

I saw Dawn's technique online and just had to try it. Check out her link below to see what she used and how she did it. I changed it up a bit by using different ink colors ( Lemon Lime Twist and Bermuda Bay) and I ended up covering the entire face of the glossy cardstock with the ink dots, then spritzing them with water, then blotting it with a facial tissue. It takes a little while to dry, but I love the result. Make sure you have a large piece of paper underneath to catch the water that will run off the face of the glossy cardstock. The large sequins are not a Stampin' Up! product, but you can purchase them at your local big box craft store.

This fun technique is easy and will look great in many color combinations. Give it a try!
