Pinkfresh Studio - Lost in the City

October 30, 2019

Happy Wednesday, crafty friends! I just wanted to pop in today and share a quick card that I made awhile ago. It was in a masculine feature for Diecutting Essentials issue 52, and I just never got around to photographing my card. In truth, I had kind-of forgotten about it until I was looking for a specific Pinkfresh card the other day and happened upon it. So, I got it photographed, and today is the day to share!

This card features the Lost in the City die, which is a background die that coordinates with the stamp set. I did not use the background stamp, but I did use a sentiment from the Lost in the City stamp set. The letters were cut using the Adore Alpha die set, leaving off the thin outline that it also cuts. Finally, the background was painted in an ombre fashion using our liquid watercolor. This is super easy to do, you just have to be sure to hit each stroke with a heat gun before moving on to the next shade or color, as it will bleed if you don't.
1. Tape a piece of distress watercolor paper down to a water media mat.
2. Paint the strips in ombre fashion, going from Sky Blue to Aquamarine, and finishing with Sapphire.
3. Dry it with a heat gun, then splatter with gold paint.
4. Let those air dry, then cut the watercolor panel with the background die.
5. Diecut the letters 3 times: once from gold glitter paper and twice from white cardstock.
6. Stack & glue the letters together with a Zig glue pen.
7. Stamp the sentiment to white cardstock using onyx black Versafine, then trim into a thin strip.
8. Mount the background to an A2 white card base with foam tape.
9. Add the letters to the middle with foam dots.
10. Add the sentiment strip to the middle of the letters with mixed media adhesive.

Tomorrow is actually the final day to pick up our full set of liquid watercolor at 20% off, as it is the October Featured Product. The savings is already reflected, so no need to use a code. I can't say enough about how much I love using these watercolors. They are so vibrant & vivid, but very easy to tone down. If you struggle with other watercolors, I highly suggest giving these a try. I think you will enjoy using them so much!

That is everything I have for you today! If you have any questions about my card, feel free to leave them in the comments and I will be sure to reply!

Before you move along with your day, I wanted to invite you to follow me on social media. I would love to be crafty friends!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
