Things With Wings and Rainbow

CUTplorations May Challenge

Hello everyone…This whole month of May, we are the 31 Days of Celebrating Spring at STAMPlorations Blog. All the blog hop, linky partyies and challenges have one theme: Things With Wings. And today I have another Things With Wings card (plus some rainbow) to share with you.

On my card, I used For The Birds For The Birds DiesLuggage Tags Nesting Dies from STAMPlorations. For the background, I created a watercolored wash with watercolor paper, Distress Ink Oxide Ink and water using smooshing technique. After that I trimmed it and added it on white card.

Then, on another watercolor paper, I painted the rainbow colors with Koi watercolored paint. I only use 3 primary colors: Red, Yellow, Blue. I blended them to create the secondary colors: Orange, Green, Purple. This is a fun and quick way to create rainbow, and my daugthers LOVE to do this with their own watercolor paints.

I dried the watercolor panel with craft heater and then I cut it using the Luggage Tag die.

After that, I stamped the sentiment from For The Bird stamp set on the tag with Versafine Onyx Black using my MISTI, and I also stamped another sentiment on a white cardstock and trimmed it into sentiment banner.

I die cut the bird using the For The Bird Dies out of black cardstock, and after that I added some white acrylic paint splatters with fan brush. For the branch, I used the negative die cut that I cut out the image from previous project as a stencil. I traced it with Faber-Castell Black PITT Artist Pen. Then, I added the bird on top of it. (go here to see the project)

I added some more white acrylic paint on the tag with fan brush to give some extra texture on the background.

My tag is done. I hope you all get some inspiration today to create a project to share with us at CUTplorations May Challenge. For more inspirations, make sure to head over to the STAMPlorations blog to see the projects from the team.
