It's Lexi Daly hosting this week's Make It Monday, over at the Papertrey Ink blog. She's demonstrating a technique where you make a stencil with a die and then watercolour over it. Naturally she made some lovely cards, like this one ...
I also chose to use a word, my brand new Noted "hello" die that just arrived yesterday, along with the rest of my July order. I know!!! My order arrived, in Canada The Far North, yesterday!! Fastest delivery ever.
I didn't have any repositionable labels or adhesives of any kind, so it was a challenge. I first tried cutting my die from Post-It Removable Label Tape (love this for masking techniques) which didn't work at all when combined with water. I ended up using my trusty Zig 2-Way glue pen to stick down both my word and heart die cuts. It worked reasonably well, but you have to be diligent about removing any excess glue because it WILL resist your colour (ask me how I know).
