Thanks for joining us for the Color Fusers April 2022 Blog Hop where I am featuring the Iconic dies and simplicity with a repetitive fern pattern and splatter background.

This color challenge of earthy colors seemed a perfect mix for the Iconic Dies. I love the organic vibe of this set, and thought it would be a great pairing. I decided to focus on the beautiful detail of the fern die, and created a simplistic card to really let it shine!

Iconic Dies

The subtle splatter background is just enough to provide a little pop of color and shimmer behind the ferns. To create the splatter, pick up ink on a Water Painter and flick bristles on the edge of it’s cap to create splatter. I used this same technique for the Wink of Stella shimmer. It is hard to see in the picture, but is is a lovely shimmery speckle background.

The sentiment is stamped in the same color ink as the splatter background to pull it through the project. And this little sentiment….it is from one of my favorite bundles, Many Messages. Stamp once, die cut once, and you have a bunch of adorable sentiment pieces to use on projects!

Using a Water Painter, splatter Bermuda Bay ink on front layer, then splatter Wink of Stella. Let Dry. Die cut three ferns from coordinating cardstock. Adhere to front layer. Stamp sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink on Basic White cardstock and die cut. Adhere a piece of twine to back of sentiment and adhere sentiment to card front with dimensionals. Rough up edges of layer with fingernail, and adhere to card front with dimensionals. Embellish as desired with Metallic Pearls.
