Life is too short...

Hi all!  Yay for Friday!  I wanted to share this card I made using the newly released TAWS set called Slurp.  It's super fun with awesome images and how true is this sentiment???  ;)  I colored the image with Copics then fussy cut it.  The sentiment is embossed with white EP.  So I hope y'all aren't tired of seeing watercoloring!  It is EVERYWHERE these days and if you haven't tried it, I highly recommend that you do!  It is SO FUN and there is NO wrong way and you get different results almost every time.  This time I took 4 different distress ink pads and stamped them directly onto my craft mat, leaving a little space in between colors.  Then I spritzed them with water, being careful to not have them blend too much (leaving the space between them helps with this).  Then I took smooth white card stock (nope, NOT watercolor paper!) and smooshed it onto the inky spots.  I carefully pressed around the back of the card stock which helps the ink/water to spread.  Lifted the card stock and voila!  A little blast with your heat gun and done!  I decided to break up the panel so I took an element from Blueprints 9 and cut out strips. After that, I adhered them to a layer of pool party card stock.  A little silver cording and a few gumdrops finish up the details.



Thanks for stopping by!  Swing by the TAWS blog for more inspiration!
