More new stuff

Here is the card I made for this week's Workshop Wow demo challenge. The challenge was to use our newest stamp set. I used the Blurred Vision Watercolor technique on the main image. You stamp the image and then watercolor over it; the ink you stamped with colors in the image, and the lines get a little blurred. This image is from Fresh Cuts and is stamped with Kiwi Kiss. I stamped the butterflies from Dreams Du Jour in Basic Brown and watercolored them with Baja Breeze and Tangerine Tango. (Tip of the day: Let one color dry before you apply the other color so they don't run together.) I cut out the butterflies then dotted on 2 way glue and sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds. I used a little Mono Multi to adhere them to the main image.
I also stamped the butterflies onto the cardbase with VersaMark.
For the ribbon, I ran some vanilla taffeta over the Tangerine Tango pad, using a sponge dauber on top to press it in. I heat set the ribbon, which crinkled it up a little; it is a cool look! Believe it or not, the Old Olive twill goes perfectly with the Kiwi Kiss!
Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Fresh Cuts, Dreams Du Jour; Paper: Confetti White, Baja Breeze, Tangerine Tango; Ink: VersaMark, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, Tangerine Tango; Accessories: cutter kit, aquapainter, Dazzling Diamonds, 2 way glue, vanilla taffeta ribbon, Old Olive polytwill ribbon
Happy stamping!
