I thought I would share the same technique as I did in my Case Study #157 card with watercoloring on a die cut instead of a rubber stamp (for the background).
The “Chevron Pattern” die cut is the perfect background for anything. I choose to water color the die cut using Inktense colored pencils and a water brush (without the water) gives you that hand colored special effect on your card.
After die cutting I like to carefully lift the die off the cutting plate so a few pieces fall off…. I like the random look. All you need to do is tape the paper together keeping all the pieces intact.
Cut the feather dies to make them more feathery. Fluff the feathers. Add more color if needed.
Scrap Dots is the perfect application to pop the back of the feathers.
