Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
Welcome to the My Favorite Things March Release Countdown Day 4.
Today I am featuring the Birdie Brown Strike up the Band stamp set.
For my first card, I made a watercolour card with the Strike up the Band set. First I 1) Die cut a piece of watercolour paper using Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics. 2) Die cut Paris Skyline from masking paper, then placed the mask die cut over my watercolour paper panel and blended around the mask area with Distress inks using mini blending tool – I used Tumbled Glass, Twisted Citron, Wild Honey, Worn Lipstick Distress inks. 3) Removed the mask and brushed the blended area with water. 4) Masked the same area once again, then stamped Music Background (as shown in the picture) on the panel using Natural dye ink. 4) Stamped the bunnies from Strike up the Band set on watercolour paper using Antique Linen Distress ink, coloured them with Peerless watercolours, then die cut them using Strike up the Band Die-namics. 5) Mounted all elements as shown to A2 white card base using dimensional foam tape. 6) Embellished with a PPP clear sequins.
Here is another card with the Strike up the Band set. For my soft blue sky background, I used the Stitched Cloud Edges Die-namics. I die cut Stitched Cloud Edges from scrap paper, placed the cloud die cut on white card stock, then sponged around the die cut with Tumbled Glass Distress ink using a sponge dauber. Lastly I trimmed it using Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle die in the Blueprints 27 Die-namics. For the bunnies, I stamped them on watercolour paper in pigment black, coloured them with Peerless watercolours, then die cut them with Strike up the Band Die-namics.
