{Technique Tuesday} May 2019 Release Blog Hop

Welcome to  Technique Tuesday's May 2019 Release Blog Hop! The design team is featuring a variety of release products and you're sure to love them so be sure to head over to the Technique Tuesday blog for the full reveal and links to all of the amazing projects. All of the amazing new products are now available for purchase!

Today, I'm featuring the Alligators and Crocodiles stamp set and coordinating dies. I know I say it every month but Technique Tuesday continues to outdo itself with every Animal House Collection release. These alligators and crocodiles have the most hilarious expressions and I love the super suspicious birds! LOL I'm amazed by the detail in their tiny eyes!

The images in this set were so fun to watercolour, which I did with distress inks after heat embossing. I picked my colours for the alligators, crocodiles and birds, then used the same colours to ink blend three panels which were die cut using the Cars on the Border Dies.

After the panels were ink blended, I used shimmer spritz to create splatter on them, to give dimension to the sunset, sand and marsh areas.

I also heat embossed the fun sentiment, which is one of the most unique sentiments I've ever come across. In fact, this set has the best snarky sentiments I've seen in a long time! If I were just starting my Animal House Collection, I'd pick Alligators and Crocodiles as my first set.

Be sure to hop along for more inspiration featuring products from the May 2019 Release!

Thanks so much for hopping along with us!
