This is a repository of snippets from my life out here in Left Field.

Hidy Ho Crafty Peeps!

I'm here today with a lovely project for Crafter's Companion. I used a new die set along with Spectrum Aqua Watercolor Markers and Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens to create a really lovely effect on a card.
The card went together fairly quickly! I used the Watercolor markers on some watercolor paper, then washed them with a broad, flat paintbrush dipped in water. This allows the colors to flow and blend beautifully! After it dried, I added a few additional splats of color to create more interest in the background. I arranged several lantern dies (aren't they terrific??) and then cut out the diecuts with black cardstock. I love the contrast between the black foreground objects and the colorful background. I hand-tore the background paper to size and added a stamped sentiment which I also colored with the watercolor markers. When everything was dry, I kissed the background with a clear sparkle pen here and there.
