Today I have my card for week three of my April guest designer month at SugarPea Designs. I suspect that many of you are starting to feel the weight of the global restrictions and I am no different. While I have been on reserve (on call) for United, I have not flown now for a month. I miss my office window! So you can see that in my project for today.
I reached for the Meadow Motifs stamp set again. While I love happy spring colors, I was feeling the call of watercolor paints and focused on blues and a gray green. I stamped lots of the beautiful images from the stamp set onto watercolor paper and got to watercoloring. Something about the imperfection of paints seemed to fit the chaos of my house.
Once completed, I cut all of the images out with the coordinating SugarCut Meadow Motifs dies. After laying them out in a grouping, I used Press’n Seal Wrap over them to hold them in place. Then comes the fun! Choose a shape die (I used an oval) and lay it over your wrap then cut. On the inside of the shape you will have the pieces still held in place. I added foam tape for extra dimension and then attached to a watercolor paper base. Carefully peel away the wrap and magic! You see the shape but didn’t have to do any piecing. The sentiment is from Everyday Sentiments stamp set and I cut it out with coordinating SugarCut Sentiment Strips.
This gorgeous stamp set was truly perfect for the Press’n Seal technique (which has been on my “to try” list for a long time). I hope you will be inspired to give it a go too. Thanks for stopping in to visit today! Back tomorrow with the latest from Freshly Made Sketches. See you then!
