More Negative Die Pretties

Hello All!

I was puttering around again, this time breaking out some watercolors.  I decided to do some emboss resist using the newTechnique Junkies Stencil Rings background stamp. This stamp, and all of the new release stamps are 15% through April 8th. I discovered some pretty, soft spring colors at Sunday Stamps~

 I stamped it onto watercolor paper using my Misti and then heat embossed with clear ep.  Next, I watercolored the piece with Peerless Watercolors.  Using a Sizzix die, I diecut the watercolor/emboss resist background and kept the pieces in the die.
Then, added dimensional adhesive to the back of the individual pieces that I wanted to use on the card front.  Placed the die over the card front and pressed the taped pieces onto the paper and out of the die.  This gives you perfect placement of the pieces.
A baby sentiment seemed appropriate for the colors, so I used my Altenew Congrats die and sentiment, which I heat embossed on black cs.
I really love how this turned out!  And I have two mommas-to-be who might get this card!

I am also linking up to

If you do any shopping at Technique Junkies, not only will you get 15% off the new release stamps, but you can get 10% off the rest of your cart using code TJ10 LeeAnn.

That's it for me, for now anyway!  Have a blessed week!
