MCT October Sneak Peek Day 1 ~ With Sympathy!



Whoop Whoop it's Monday, the first day of October Sneak Peeks for My Creative Time!  I'm so in LOVE with all the new stamps and dies, they are so versatile too!  I really love how creative you can be with them.  Oh and how you can mix them with previously released sets!!!

For today's card I did a some stamping, die cutting, and a bit of watercoloring!


To create the watercolor tree, I first stamped the trunk, then I cut the oval tree top out of scratch paper.  I then layed the negative over the top of the trunk and splattered watered down ink.  I use brick red, a musturd yellow, and moss green.  Once the splatters were dry I remove the "negative scratch paper"  then added a few more splatters and "leaves" at the bottom of the trunk.

Again once dry I added the sentiment and small amount of gold pen.  It's hard to see in the picture, but trust me, in person it really adds alot. :)
