Scribbling Technique plus VIDEO

Hello. Today I'm sharing a card set I created for Heidi, the owner of Simon Says Stamp. Since these cards will be sent from Simon Says Stamp, I thought it was fitting to use THIS stamp set featuring their Simon. I discovered a "happy accident" while creating these cards and a new "scribbling" technique was born.

(*Please note that I was at a craft retreat when I created these cards so the pictures are a bit different than my usual set up) 

Here's the video explaining the "scribbling" technique...

I started by die-cutting THIS die from THIS watercolor cardstock several times. I applied two different colors of distress ink to a piece of thin recycled plastic packaging. One color on top, the other on the bottom. I sprayed it a few times with water and placed it down on the die-cut piece. As I was moving the color around to encourage it to blend, I realized that my finger was making a scribble pattern. I liked the effect, so I went with it. Here's a closer look...

It gives a subtle effect but adds texture. I finished off the cards by coloring and die-cutting Simon using THIS die and adding a birthday greeting using THIS stamp set. I also added a paw print on the back of the cards as well as the envelope to pull everything together...

You can also cut die-cut words or shapes from it...

I hope this inspires you to give this scribbling technique a try! 

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
