Hello, friends! I’m excited to share two projects featuring Spellbinders Die D-Lites. One of the things I love about working with Spellbinders products is that most of them are dies that force me to think outside the box. It gets me to try techniques that I don’t usually do when playing with just stamps.
For the first card, I used Die D-Lites Fishing Trip Etched Dies, which include dies for a fish and fishing tools. There are so many ways to play with such dies, but I decided to watercolor.
I looked up watercolor fish inspiration on Pinterest and set about making some random patterns on 3 fish that I die-cut. I used Mijello Mission Gold watercolors for the background sea. One tip to get some patterns is to use a wet wipe and dab on colors. It got a little messy, but that’s okay. I liked how it turned out. I stamped the sentiment from Neat and Tangled’s A-Mazing with VersaMark ink on black cardstock and heat-embossed in white. I trimmed it down and mounted it along with the images with foam tape for dimension.
For my second card, I used Die D-Lites Beverages. I die-cut them and decided to watercolor in rainbow order. I added some details with a white gel pen and finished it off with texture using Amplify, which is a pigment ink that is thick so can be used to create foam, snow, etc. For my base, I added a stroke of gray watercolor and some black and gold paint splatters. The sentiment was stamped from Mama Elephant’s Picnic with Friends, and I felt it was appropriate to go with beverages!
