Hello Crafty Friends,
Welcome back and thanks for stopping by at Carson's Creations again. I have been fortunate to have some extra time during the last couple days (no training, no yard work, only a little laundry, etc.), so I have been able to get crafty! I have been wanting to try so many different techniques and honestly...I forget what they are since I have seen so many fabulous projects. Well, I decided to start a list and cross off each technique or style as I try. Here is one that can now be crossed off! Yippee!
My project that I am sharing today consists of die-cut negatives and watercolors.

First, I used the Birthday Bash Cricut cartridge to cut out the sentiment at 8".
Then using Strathmore watercolor paper and Ranger Distress Inks I created the background. I used peacock feathers and mustard seed ink colors. Once it dried I decided to splatter some ink on the top. A couple yellow enamel dots and a present sticker to finish it.
On this next card I used the die-cut from the above negative, but changed the ink colors. I used Ranger picked raspberry, spiced marmalade, and mustard seed inks.
White sequins with a pink tint and another present sticker sit on top of a Swiss Dot embossed frame.
Have you tried using watercolors? What is your favorite technique? Do you prefer inks, paints, or pencils? I am not done learning, so if you have a recommendation, please share! Be sure to come back tomorrow for Part 2.
