{Spotlight Project} One Die, Three Backgrounds with Cornelia

Hi, Cornelia here today using one die and 3 different backgrounds.


My supplies:

I cut myself some panels from white card stock and ombre sponged them with Distress Oxide inks.

Die cut the birds with black card stock.

Splattered water onto the purple panel.

Used salt for the second one and sprayed it with water.

Used a stencil for the third one and sponged with the same ink.

I then cut some slightly larger panels from black card stock and choose a grayish brown card stock as my base layer. Added the sentiments, which are all from this wonderful stamp set. I added some sequins to the blue card - I was not so happy with the way the salt turned out - perhaps the wrong salt, but most definitely the wrong card stock - should have used water color paper for it....I also added a generous does of Wink of Stella to the green card and dabbed some Stickles into the center of the flower. Kind of odd, that the card base is the same color, but looks totally different in the pictures...
