Even so if you look especially at the blown up pink balloon you can see we have some reaction/oxidation going on!
Below is my very first play on a scrap piece of watercolour paper. I smooched the ink pads onto an old plastic bag which was sitting in my rubbish bin then spritzed with water; then smooched & scrunched each colour onto the watercolour paper, drying each colour with my heat gun. You certainly could layer up more colour. I stamped the balloons with Versafine black ink & then clear embossed. You can also see the whoopsie if your water colour paper is not completely dry below you get a puddle of clear embossed powder ☹
I think the rest of the card is pretty self explanatory so the full recipe is below starting off with the DIE CUTS instead of the stamps as we're all about the die cut this challenge. To be honest I often won't buy a stamp set if it doesn't have a die as I don't enjoy fussy cutting.
Dies (all MFT): BB Adorable Elephants, Wonky Stitched Rectangles, Stitched Sentiment Strips
Stamp set: BB Adorable Elephants (MFT)
Paper: Watercolour, Soft Sky (SU!), Sunkissed DSP (Prima - very OLD)

Other: Watercolour brushes, Versafine Black ink, clear embossing powder, dimensionals, MISTI, various sequins (also bought at SENZ 2016), heat gun.
So I hope you can join in on the just use a die-cut challenge (see the SG Challenge site for the rules, which are very minimal) and as always we have TWO amazing sponsors for this challenge, so there's goodies to be won too. Winners are drawn randomly, so nothing to lose.
