Winnie & Walter – A Week to Die For – Day 3

Hello again!

Its Day 3 of Winnie & Walter’s A Week to Die For, which means more fun showcasing the dies that came out from the January Release!

Today’s focus is on the Big Bang Confetti Cutaway and The Party Confetti Cutaway – here’s my card:

I began by trimming out a piece of white cardstock using the largest frame die from the Essentials: Katherine set to give me a bit of texture around the edges. Then I ran this panel through my die-cutting machine twice with the Big Bang Confetti cutaways, whilst the dies were still intact.

I stamped a sentiment from The Party in the bottom right hand corner with black ink, and then set the panel aside to work on the brightly coloured background. I trimmed down a piece of watercolour paper using the same frame die and spritzed liberally with water to prepare the surface. I took one of my largest acrylic blocks and painted on some colour using different shades of Dylusions Ink Sprays – the pigments on these are really intense!

I took the inked up acrylic block to the watercolour panel and laid it face down onto the wet surface – I began smooshing it around to let the colours bleed all over the entire panel. Surprisingly, the inks moved really freely and blended beautifully, whilst retaining all that intensity! Once I was happy, I heat set the panel – I can see myself using this technique again, purely because I could whip up a background so quickly 😉

I foam mounted the die-cut piece onto to inked panel and then adhered that down to a white card base. To finish, I added a few sequins from the 1st Birthday Bash Sequins Mix.

Be sure to visit the Winnie & Walter blog for more inspiration for using your cutaways from Julie, Shay, the guests and the rest of The Talent.

Thanks for stopping by 😉

    This card is eye catching and dynamic, I love the bright colors and the repeating shapes of dies cuts, the stars and sequins. I imagine that this would be a joyful surprise for anyone. Beautifully done!
