Faux Dip Dye Technique

Happy Sunday everyone! It's a gloomy, rainy day in VA but I'll take it, because it means I have a great excuse to get inky! After seeing Kristina Werner's Faux Dip Dye with Watercolor tutorial, I knew I wanted to try this technique. I used my Mijello Mission Gold watercolor palette with yellow/orange/red tones rather than pink and red.  I thought it would be a better fit for a masculine Valentine.  I was also anxious to try out the Stick It adhesive paper to adhere the large intricate dye (Big Valentine's Day by Simon Says Stamp - oops, I see it's OOS) and it was SOOO much easier and cleaner than my usual method of adding glue with a glue stick! 

I'm entering this into the CAS on Sunday challenge where they are celebrating their 100th challenge with a theme of hearts.
