PTI Make it Monday #189 ~ Impression Line Water Coloring

Sad News....

We learn that my brother-in-law Dan had just passed on Wednesday evening, DH and I packed right away, drove 4 hours to flagstaff, Arizona, arrived almost 4 AM, rest for the night and then continue to drive again the next morning. Through the state line of Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and stopping for a night at Wichita, Kansas for a night as I am typing this, we will continue to drive through Missouri and the Iowa, should be in Cedar Rapids in the late afternoon on Friday, so please excuse me if you don't see me around much the next few days, here's the pre-scheduled post

............................

The Challenge:

PTI Make it Monday #189 ~ Impression Line Water Coloring

as you can see, instead of using PTI die "JOY" to cut out the word, I embossed it instead


and then I used PTI Ink scarlet jewel to color the word


after I let it dry for a day, I then play with some water color around the word JOY


next is to stamp the sentiment "to the world" at the bottom, this is the mini stamp set for the matching die


even the glittered star is a cut out from one of PTI snowflake die

Dear Kirsty, so sad to hear of your family's loss. Hope being with family comforts all of you.
Your sweet card gives a great idea for the use of a word die. Will be waiting for your return to posting your beauties.
