I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. On this card I combined my two favorite ways to color, water color and blendabilities. I did a wash of color on a piece of water color paper that measure 5" x 3 3/4". I did this by squeezing my strawberry slush ink pad so that there was ink in the lid and took a very wet watercolor brush and washed the color all over the paper. I dried the paper with my heat gun and then got the ink in the lid really wet and splashed the color onto the paper to create texture. I again dried the paper with my heat gun. When it was completely dry I stamped the flower image from the blended bloom stamp set with momento ink and colored with blendabilities. The sentiment is from A dozen thoughts stamp set and heat embossed with black embossing powder. This is layered on basic black CS and the card base is Strawberry Slush CS. All items used on this card are from Stampin' Up!
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.
I'm back with some more coloring. This is another card from my Challenge class last month. I used the water color pencils on this card however I did not use any water. I just simply used them like you would a colored pencil. I love how this turned out.
Here is a close up of the flower....
I used the gray pencil and the white pencil on the flowers and a little bit of green on the stem. This stamp set is called Avant Garden and can be yours for free with a $50 order before tax and shipping. This offer is only good until March 31 and only while supplies last so don't wait if there is something you had your eyes on.
