MIM #161: Watercolor Splats

IMG_4445


Happy Friday, I didn't want the week to pass without trying the current Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Technique: Watercolor Splats.  I made a panel blending Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz, Orange Zest and Summer Sunrise and cut out three butterflies from it.  The first one was technique gone badly, but I kept the other two.  The first one was also the one that captured all of the colours.

Great idea, Tracey, to try this technique on a die-cut/focal point. Really pretty cards!

A technique so not in my repertoire, but oh, how I love when others create with it. Your butterflies here are top-notch! Gorgeous colours, with eye-catching water-splats! Love these!

These are both great Tracey. I especially like the splats on the orange butterfly. I gave this technique a try and called it a fail:) I'll have to try again another time.

Oooh, I love both of these! I love how you were able to do the MIM technique, but on a smaller scale! So perfect!

Love both of these. I am still trying to get a moment to try this technique. Very clever to cut butterflies for your card. I'm going to remember that idea.

These are so lovely, Tracey! I was debating about trying the technique on a die cut & you've inspired me to give it a try!

Fabulous, Tracey--love them both! Using the technique on a die cut creates a totally different look and I adore your results!
