I am super excited today because it's my very first solo post here at Die Cut Diva's. I am new to the team, and this month's challenge is New Technique, Die, Stamp, and/or Colours!! How fun is that?!
Our great sponsor this month is One Happy Cut. Winner of this month's challenge would receive a $15 gift certificate to their store.
For my project I used my new ink: Hero Arts Ombre Tide Pool to Navy, along with the Impression Obsession Dies - Feather set available at One Happy Cut.
I pressed my ink pad directly onto water colour paper panel, and I wanted to spritz water all over it to create a water on water look. But I got distracted and left to do something else. By the time I returned the ink has dried! :( But I spritzed water all over it anyway hoping to achieve the same result, sadly it didn't turnout, but this became a happy accident (thus the title of this post), the backside looks very interesting. After it dried I die cut the feathers and went ahead to create my card. Here's a look of how I got my feather dies done.

Here's my finished card, I fashioned the feathers like a nest for my bird.
