We’re back for another fabulous day of The Cat’s Pajamas new release Sneaky Peeks! Alma has some amazing dies coming out this week that I’m quite taken with. This fabulous little font lovers die is called Hello There.
Today I paired this wonderful die with another set that you’ll see peeked later this week (I’m just warning you ahead of time....it’s AH-MAY-ZING!), so today is an extra sneaky sneak peek of it in the watercoloured background. I thought the flowers and the die really paired well together. I added a wash of water to the watercolour paper, allowed it to soak in a little then stamped the background and used a waterbrush to spread out and soften the colour a little.
I used the die about 3 or 4 times on watercolour paper that I had added a nice colour wash to, and then layers of cardstock so I could stack it up and have some height for the sentiment. It’s such a pretty cheerful font :).
The background is also ink splattered after I watercoloured it, I love the dreamy effect.
To finish off the design I added some clear sequins and silver cording. It’s really clean and simple...yet that washy background really gives it such life!
Here’s a peek at the gorgeous die...
