In Color Love
You guys not since Coastal Cabana or even Baja Breeze have I been this happy with our In Colors! I seriously cannot stop using them. I wanted to make a 'one layer' card. Now it's not exactly a one layer card I do have a couple die cuts on there, but essentially it's one layer. I love that these colors just work together. To create the background I took my inks, Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum, and my sponge daubers and I just put the ink on the card base. It's really that easy. Once my card was nice and covered in ink and my colors were well blended I used my spritzer and made some nice water drops on the card. Have a paper towel handy, you don't want the water to dry on the card. The water will 'bleach' out some of the ink, I left the water on for only a few seconds then used the paper towel to blot the card and pick up that water. I love this look!
As for the die cuts, I used the Sunshine Wishes thinlits. I cut the 'love' from some black glimmer paper and the heart from some vellum. I used 2 pieces of vellum and stuck them together. I wanted the heart to stand out but not so much that it would become distracting on the card, vellum worked great!
