June 20

Happy Saturday!

Today we have a great tutorial from Deepti that 
shows a great way to use our Tic Tac Toe Fri-Die 
in a unique way.

Look at this beautiful card she created using that die 
and our Mon Ami stamp set...

Step 1 - Mark along the die, to cut the water color cardstock to the size

Step 2 - Heat emboss the flowers, and leaves with gold embossing powder

Step 3 - watercolor this piece with a watercolor wash technique using distress inks. In the wash technique water is added first to enable a free flowing effect of pigments.

Step - 4 Die cut the piece with the Tic-tac-toe Fri-die

Step 5 - Use the scissor to separate the connected pieces. This step can be avoided if the watercolor panel is cut slightly smaller than the diecut.

Step 6 - Lay the positive of the die cut on card stock as a guide to arrange and adhered the pieces on card base.

Step 7 - After adhereing all the pieces on card base, remove the positive of the die to reveal the canvas collage look.

I love that she finished it off with a pretty sentiment from our Calm and Loving.

Awesome card, awesome tutorial, let's leave her some love!
