The Elegant Shorebirds pose as flamingos and the Cat Tail Sunrise frames a watercolored sunset on a summer card today. Hello, Jean Okimoto here sharing a sunny-day idea that takes Memory Box dies a bit beyond their original, intended designs.
Spritz a light mist of water onto watercolor paper. Paint it in pale, overlapping shades of pink, yellow, and coral - and a light tinge of gray in a few areas. Imagine Crafts Kaleidacolor Dye Ink Refills were used as liquid watercolors here. Air-dry it, then spritz it with a fine mist of Imagine Crafts Gold Sheer Shimmer. Heat-set the inks.
Cut it with the 2-¼" x 3-½" Rectangle Basics die.
Cut gray cardstock with Cat Tail Sunrise. Trim it with the same Rectangle Basics die - keep the cutting edge of the rectangle away from the delicate circle. Trim the spikey tips of any cattails that were cut off.
Attach the diecuts to a top-folded A-2 card of coral creme cardstock. I've used the smoother side of textured cardstock here
Cut little coral glittered hexagons with the Honeycomb Square. It's the perfect size for bright sparkly accents - try it with mirror cardstock too.
We appreciate your support of Memory Box designs and hope you'll experiment with different ways to use them - as intended, or in your unique creative ways! Thanks for visiting...see you soon!
