Here is my card for the current theme. I have combined the camouflaging die cuts technique with the water color burst effect. 


I also have a pictorial for making this card. 

The supplies needed - 

Water color paper/Heavy weight Card stock
Distress ink pads
Masking tape
Non stick mat
Acrylic block
Dies
Stamps
Archival Ink pad
Brushes (flat & round tip)


1. Adhere the paper to the non stick mat using masking tape. 
2. Dab the distress ink colors of choice on the mat/block. 
3. Use the flat brush & wet the paper with clean water first. Be as random as you can. This will be the trail the colors follow.



4. Wet the round brush & pick up the first color, apply on one end.



5. Continue with all the colors one by one, allowing them to blend.





6. Let dry & then die cut directly in the water color burst. 
7.To add dimension, I die-cut "teacher" four times from white cardstock. Then I glued all pieces together with the colored one on top.  
8.To finish it off, I inlaid the stacked die cut to the card base.
 9. I stamped the sentiment "thank you" in black. 




 It is a simple water color technique & I think the inlaid die cut adds dimension to this otherwise simple card.



Would love what to hear your thoughts on this & inviting you all to participate this month too in our challenge. 

Hugs,
Tanvi.
