TAWS post #69 - Love!

Hi Friends!  Meredith here with a bright and happy creation using one of my favorite classic Alley Way sets called Tri-Me.  I used a rainbow selection of Distress Inks and pearlized water in a mister bottle to create the fun and bright background.
I cut it out using a large banner die from MFT and added my sentiment with another die from Lawn Fawn.  I used black cardstock heat embossed with black glitter embossing powder for the sentiment.  I coated the black cardstock with Versamark Ink and then coated the whole piece liberally with the powder.  I heat set it and then cut the sentiment out.  I love the texture that the glitter embossing powder provides.

I used my Uniball Signo white gel pen to hand draw faux stitching around the perimeter of the banner on the black cardstock to really make it pop!

I did a second rendition of this as well while I had my supplies out!
This one is on the warmer side and is really so bright and happy!  It makes me smile!
I love how this technique achieved the look of watercolor without using any!  Super simple and quick!

Thanks so much for coming by today!
