Case Study #144

I love crafting with friends, and my good friend Tori came over so we could get our craft on.

Case Study #144 it was:

I knew I wanted bold colors and simplistic look so  I cracked out my Tim Holtz ink pads and decided to go with a watercolor-ish styled background. So, a little dabbing on my craft mat with a light spritzing of water and a press of the paper and you have a beautiful "watercolor-ish" background. If you want it to have a stronger meld of colors just spritz a heavier coating. I love doing this technique because really play around with the inks and water to get different effects. I stamped a peacock feather on top with some staz-on ink. For dimension I added some little jewels and a sentiment.

Our inspiration

My Take
And both of ours together. I am so in LOVE with how Tori's came out. Wanna know how she did her background? Head on over to her blog to find out at Tiny Bits Of Something.
