Ellen Hutson LLC – Essentials by Ellen May Release!

I’m so excited to share a project that I designed especially for today’s Ellen Hutson LLC – Essentials by Ellen May Release!  I inked up the new Mondo Sakura by Julie Ebersole.  

If you’re familiar with Julie’s Mondo collection they’re big + beautiful!


My card base is a standard A2 size (4.25 x 5.5).  Look at the glorious size of that beautiful bloom!  I stamped it with Versafine Onyx on Ranger Watercolor paper.  They’ve been watercolored with Spun Sugar  +  Picked Raspberry.  The stems and leaves have been colored with Zig Clean Color Markers Pale Green  •  Emerald Green.  

The Hello and you have been stamped with Versafine Onyx.  The Hello almost looks like die cut letters, doesn’t it?!  As I pondered what I was going to use for the ‘wonderful’ die cut available with the Mondo Sakura Designer Dies, it hit me to use my leftover bits of watercolor paper.  I brushed some swipes of Picked Raspberry on it and die cut away!

The background is compliments of Twisted Citron using the smooshing technique.  I loaded up a large acrylic blocked with Twisted Citron, spritzed it with water and literally smooshed my watercolor panel onto it.  I hit it with my heat gun and did it again to get the desired consistency.  The black flecks are ala Kuretake Ganzai black.  I saturated a wet watercolor brush with the paint.  I used the side of  an acrylic block, and tapped the paintbrush (situated directly above the area I wanted to fleck).  This gives such nice round droplets, doesn’t it?

I can’t wait to see all the other gorgeous New Release inspiration!
