You are Amazing

I fell for this set from pti but I was being a bit tight and only bought the dies, of course when I came to use the dies without the stamp didn't work, so of course I had to get the stamps, I sometimes wonder will I ever learn lol.

I have wanted to try the watercolour background for a while but I don't have a lot of watercolour paper to practice so I found some old papermill card and decided to give it a whirl, I have to say I'm very impressed it reacted with the water brilliantly, die cut like a dream and is now enjoying a new lease of life in my craft room.

I used three distress inks for this background, evergreen bough, salty ocean and tumbled glass. I smushed them onto my craft sheet, spritzed with water then just dropped and smushed the paper into the ink, once it was dry I pounced it back into the pools of ink to get a more concentrated colour. Such an easy process I can't believe I've not done it before.
