Currently, I’m a guest designer for Neat and Tangled and I received this very cool Punchinella die. Sometimes I have ideas in my head but when I craft, things don’t always go as planned. This is one of those kinds of cards.

I first started with watercolor paper and adding random colors from the Mijello Mission Gold watercolors. I die-cut the Punchinella die and was very careful so that the pieces wouldn’t fall out. I added drops of glossy accents on each circle and then placed it over a small black piece. I as hoping to remove the negative, but the glossy accent spread so this is what I ended up with. I like it because it gives it dimension. Then I die-cut some Leafy Greenery in various colors. I stamped and heat embossed the coffee cup and saucer and fussy cut it. The sentiment was stamped and heat set with gold embossing powder (the stamp set is from Clear & Simple Stamps but is discontinued). Then I rearranged all the pieces over a white cardbase.

    So gorgeous! Love the rainbow colors and the way you adhered some of the circles with the negative. 🙂
