Love U Dad

Happy Tuesday!
 This is my DT post for and this week theme is Father's Day!!! And here is my first Masculine creation!!!
This time I chose a Kraft CS for my base. On a watercolor paper, I have created a very cool water color technique. I took my Black soot and white linen Distress markers  and created circle swatches of ink(using brush tip) ...covering the entire piece of Watercolor Paper. Then i used a large solid circle and water spritzer.
 Next, mist the solid circle with plain water and 'stamp' onto the watercolor paper that I colored.  Keep misting/spritzing and stamping all over the paper until you get the paper pretty....definitely not damp, but not soaking and dripping in water, either.  You will see the colors start to fade into each other. And let it be dry properly. Isn't it cool different Bokeh Technique!
 Then I stamped the sentiment using second generation stamping method as I wanted a little faded look. I adhered a window panel and my watercolor piece on my Kraft CS base and added a scalloped border. 
    On another snippet of watercolor paper I stamped the trophy in black pigment ink and embossed it with clear gloss 4 times for shine and gloss! And matted it on my beaded circle nesting die cut. And finished it off with a washi tape, few sequins, silver colored number 1 die cut on a trophy and a tiny heart and a twine!
Isn't it cool creation for Father's Day!
Have a wonderful day!
