There are two cards on this post so be sure to scroll down. I broke out my colored die powders – in this case, Bisters – and had more of the fun I always have with these. The first card features Parson's "Egyptian Fans" image. The results pleased me so much that I was late in sending it out! I was having way too much fun gazing at it repeatedly and the time just slipped by without my noticing . . .
I used the same materials for the second card, but changed out the image. For both cards, I cut the watercolor cardstock to size and stamped and embossed the images first. Then I brushed water onto the paper and immediately dusted on the dye powders. I re-misted and moved color around where needed with my finger and then heat dried. A little Wink of Stella for sparkle among the fans and the leaves and . . . done!
I'll never tire of these wonderful powders!
