Hi friends! The Trend Challenge over at Just Us Girls this week is to use powdered dyes.
I haven't used these Color Burst powder dyes in a while, so I was happy for this challenge. I decided to use three colors (yellow, crimson, and blue) and just go wild on a piece of watercolor paper. I spritzed it with water and dried it with a heat tool. Then I die cut it with this harlequin cover plate. I also cut another piece of watercolor paper with the die and insert the watercolor piece into the frame. I used Stick It so that the frame and pieces would stick to the black base. I die cut the word die from black cardstock four times and stacked it. I embossed the word "wishes" on vellum and adhered the die cut to it as well as the sequins. There's shimmer on the die cut as well.
Because I die cut the cover plate twice, I was able to make two cards. Here's the reverse of the first one. Same design, different look.
And here they are side-by-side. I have a few retirements to go to and I think these will be perfect for them.
