Love You Lots card detail by Dawn Thomas #crackedpotstamper #stampinup
hoppin' off the card
  • First, there are actually 3 frogs not 1-layered using Stampin' Dimensionals to give him some "lift"
  • Secondly, I used a technique that I'm calling the "Spritz & Swish" on the top 2 layers before I snipped and layered them.

"Spritz & Swish"-you're probably wondering if I've lost my ever lovin' pea pickin' mind!

I haven't. But I do love this technique.

  • Simply "spritz" your watercolor paper with water-making sure it is relatively moist.
  • "Swish" on some ink using your Aqua Painter.
  • And then "spritz" a little more water on.
  • Let dry completely
  • Stamp your image and proceed
  • Enjoy you one of a kind masterpiece!

I love this technique for lots of reasons but mostly because it is fun!

No 2 pieces will turn out the same-kinda like us, we are each unique and beautiful.
