Hi! This is Jennifer Gallagher from Nathalie Kalbach's Creative Squad.
We are raiding our stashes this week. What good artist or crafter worth their salt doesn't have a considerable stash of supplies just waiting for inspiration? In my stash I found a few sets of Sizzix Thinlits dies by Tim Holtz that I haven't used in ages. These dies, along side a few of my go-to supplies, were the inspiration for these beautiful note cards.
I adore my n*Studio ArtFoamies and wanted to show you a new way to use them. Begin by spraying a few colors of Dylusions Ink Spray onto a watercolor note card. Don't be stingy with the spray! You will want a nice base of color to work with.
Next, spritz some water onto your artfoamie making sure the entire design is wet. Gently press the artfoamie onto the note card. After a few seconds, remove the artfoamie and dab a paper towel onto the card to pick up the excess moisture. (Dab - don't wipe!) Because the ink sprays are water reactive, we will be pulling ink off of the card leaving the design of the artfoamie behind. Repeat until you have a design you like.
Choose a few sentiments from the die set and run them on black cardstock through your die cutting machine. Fix your sentiment onto your note card with a liquid glue like Tombow Mono.
This is a fun way to use your artfoamies so be sure to try this at home and share your creations with us! Get into that supply stash and get creative.
