Hello! Today I am excited to be Guesting with Concord & 9th for their new February 2018 release!
Featured here are the new Everyday Tintables card pack…this is a pack of beautiful watercolor cardstock with images pre-printed on them that will resist ink! I wanted to show the versatility of these background cardstock pages, so here I have tried 4 different techniques with them.
The first is watercolor. I did a simple watercolor wash using three different colors of Gansai Tambi watercolors. Look how beautifully that resist works on this background!
I have also used the Everyday Circle dies and the Everyday Greeting Stamp set to create a focal point. I heat embossed the Thanks sentiment with glitter embossing powder in three colors to match my background.
The next background features Distress Ink blending. I used only three colors here: Abandoned Coral, Fossilized Amber, and Mermaid Lagoon…and they blended great on this paper and created the look of FIVE colors.
Again, I used the Everyday Circles die, but I cut it out of both black and white papers….see the black “frame” around the white circle? It cuts that small thin frame as a bonus…so you can frame your circle in a different color to give it a layered look! So cool.
This next background was created using the ink smooshing technique. This might be my favorite one of all…I love how it plays well with the background design that is already on the Concord & 9th papers!
Notice how the circle die has some designs cut out…there are many mix & match designs with this Everyday Circle die set! I love this one because it shows more of that amazing background. For the hello die (also part of this set), I cut it out of black foam and popped it up for that 3D effect.
Here’s a closer look:
My last card features the confetti background from the Everyday Tintables Card Pack using Distress Oxide Ink. These inks also blend well on this card set. For this one I popped up a birthday ribbon for the birthday boy (or girl) to wear!
I stamped that Happy Birthday sentiment from the Everyday Greetings Stamp Set with Distress Oxide Inks and then clear embossed over the top. For the background I inked blended Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Salty Ocean, and a little of the Wilted Violet Distress Oxide inks. I added a few sequins to add to the confetti celebration feel.
I also used those striped dies with the circle and paper pieced one of each of the colors into the circle.
