Birthday Dip Dye

Hello there, today I have a card to share that I made for my uncle for his birthday. I thought it would be fun to try Kristina's Faux Dip Dye Technique for it.

I first took a sheet of watercolour paper and ripped the bottom edge. I then taped it to a board and added layers of Dr Ph. Martin's Hydrus Watercolours on top. I used various blues and teals and dried each layer in between. I did end up doing two layers of each colour to intensify the colours. Once dry, the panel was adhered flat to an A2 white card base.
I took the Mama Elephant Big Happy Birthday Die and die cut this three times from white cardstock. They were stacked up and glued together using Multi Medium Matte. I then die cut the top layer from Tim Holtz Distress Woodgrain Cardstock. The die was adhered to the card with more Multi Medium Matte Glue.

A really simple card but I do like how it turned out. I think the woodgrain texture on the die cut gives a slight bit more interest to the card. Thanks so much for stopping by today, I really do appreciate it. I hope you have a wonderful day!


  1. Wow! The colours on those really are vibrant and only two layers? Looks like it should be more. Love the ombre look xx
