My favourite technique & products

Today I am joining in on the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge of Using your favorite Technique and/or product. I am happy to share a few of my favourite Techniques: Watercolouring; Die Cutting; Stamping; and product favourites: Blossom Paper Pack and Baker's Twine.

This card started with some doodling on watercolour paper. I know most want to call doodling zentangle these days, however, to me it is just plain doodling. There is no real rhyme or reason.....just making my own drawings to the beat of my own drum! I doodled with my new Faber Castell Black Pitt Big Brush Pen.

I schmoosed Gypsy; Lagoon and Pear in on my All Purpose Mat. Once I had spritzed the ink with water, I randomly painted it on. Once the watercolour paper dried, I die cut it with a stitched die from My Favorite Things. I also die cut a Lagoon and Pear border with more stitched dies from My Favorite Things. The stitched ticket is from Lawn Fawn.

I used the beautiful Blossom patterned paper along with the sentiment stamp set from Artfully Sent and another retired one. Finally, I tied things up with some Lagoon Baker's Twine.

All supplies are Close To My Heart, unless noted.
