To create a watercolor look simply dab a little distress paint on your craft sheet and dip your watercolor brush in the paint and apply. This creates a bold pop of color! The Umbrella Man umbrella is cut on Mat Board and yep, more Distress Paints Weathered Wood and Bundled Sage.
I wanted to make it look like it was raining. I used the Dot Fade stencil, Faded Jeans distress marker and the Spritzer. I created a mask to put over the umbrella and bird.
I cut "cherish" on watercolor paper from the new Thinlits Love die.
Tip; Using the magnetic plate, layer your paper, some wax paper and the Thinlits die. Run through your die cutting machine 3-4 passes to get a good clean cut. The multiple passes and wax paper help your paper pop right out and reduces tearing.
I wanted to spruce up the inside. I stamped Celebrate from the new Handwritten Sentiments and stamped again from Simple Sayings, Life. Another bird is tucked into the corner.
All layered on Core Paper adds that grungy feel.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you will stop by The Funkie Junkie Boutique and check out our Friday Focus page to see all the yummy Distress Paints. This is my take on a Sympathy Card. I prefer creating celebration cards!
