It's been a while since I have used this stamp. This is a large Background stamp but I like to just use part of it for a flower image. I used another technique for water coloring with this one and it can be done on whisper white CS so you don't have to have water color paper. I used my stampin write markers and an aqua painter. Your brush needs to be damp but not soaked, if its to wet you wont get the shading effect. I started by stamping the image with staz-on, I colored one flower at a time so that the ink doesn't dry. I started by coloring the entire petal with melon mambo and then went over the spot I wanted to be a little darker with the cherry cobbler marker and then immediately blended with the aqua painter.
This is the Easter card I made for my kids this year. This is so fun. The chicks are made from the Circle punch, itty bitty flower punch, the scallop circle punch, and the owl punch. I made the grass using the new fringe scissors. The clouds are done using a template and sponging soft sky ink.
Happy Super Bowl Sunday!
Today's card uses another stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog. It's called flowering fields on page 12. You can have this beautiful stamp set for free with a qualifying order. I stamped some of the flowers with versa mark and embossed with white embossing powder. The other ones were stamped in blackberry bliss. What do you think of that ribbon? The pool party glitter ribbon is in the Occasions catalog and it is AMAZING. Most glitter ribbons can be difficult to work with but not this one. It is so easy to work with and ties beautifully. The sentiment is from the "First Sight" stamp set in the Occasions catalog.
Well that's about it for today. I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend and enjoying the Super Bowl today.
These are a couple of Sympathy cards I made this week for 2 different friends. I used the same set Pleasant Poppies and water colored one with Primrose Petals and the other with Raspberry ripple. Love the new In-colors from Stampin Up! I used 2 different framelits from the Apothecary Accents set. On the bottom of the top card I used one of the Finishing Touches Edgelits (love them) and the other one I used one of the Adorning Accents Edgelits. The ribbon is just some of the Taffeta Ribbon in very vanilla which I sponged with the matching in-colors to get the color I wanted. The sentiment is done using a stamp from the Petite Pairs Stamp set and punched out with the new Ticket Duo Punch. The very vanilla layer is embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Folder. Well thats it for me tonight. Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to leave a comment, I would love to hear what you think.
