PTI Make It Monday

Good morning...

I have a card to share which uses the technique from this weeks' Make It Monday at PTI
The technique is Watercolour resist using rubber cement

I have been unable to obtain rubber cement here in the UK but I have an art masking fluid which is a similar thing and I've used it before on projects... So here's my card


It's sort of like butterflies rising from the sea... The sunshine here has me thinking of the beach - hence the colours Lol! 
I stuck to a white CS for the base and used Gansai Tambi paint... I love that colour


The butterflies are from PTI as is the sentiment and die... I also used PTI's Classic Craft ink to stamp the sentiment then went over it again in Versamark and heat embossed it with clear E/B. The antenna are cut from another die - I smooshed the PTI ink pad over a scrap of CS and again added Versamark and heat embossed it before cutting the antenne

It's a fun technique... Give it a try

Have a beautiful day
