PTI 11th Anniversary Day 7: Dies Only Challenge
This was an interesting challenge. Use only dies! No stamps at all. I pulled out the Framed Friends die by Papertrey Ink for my card.
I sponged three colors of Distress Oxide ink on a piece of watercolor paper. I wanted color. Bold color. It's been overcast and rainy a lot recently, so I chose three bright shades: Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean, and Wilted Violet. After randomly blending them onto the paper, I spritzed the piece with water and lifted it off to create the texture. Then I splattered some Kuretake Pearls watercolor paint on top. Finally, I sponged Black Soot Distress Oxide ink around the edges.
I cut the large word frame from True Black cardstock twice and layered them together for dimension. Then I simply glued it in place onto my card front. The whole thing was adhered to a black card base. I love how it turned out! You can see other cards for the Papertrey Ink dies challenge on their blog here.
