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!
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.
