Here are a few of the projects I have created for today’s hop:
This card was created by first using a Gel Plate and acrylic paints to create a colorful panel. I then stamped the Peony image on the panel with Versafine Black Onyx ink. I left my stamp in position in my MISTI, while I painted in the blooms and foliage with acrylic paint. I painted directly over the stamped image, but tried to stay within the exterior lines. Once it was dry, I restamped right over the paint with Versafine again, puting the details back on top of the paint. I then trimmed the panel and added to a Turquoise Sea Card base. The greeting was stamped on Heavyweight White cardstock, trimmed and adhered to my card with foam dimensional adhesive.
I also stamped this image with Versafine, onto Bristol Smooth paper, then watercolored it using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. The square panel was popped up from the white mat using a piece of white fun foam, then added to a background of the patterned paper found in the Delicate Essentials paper pack.
This little owl from Wise Old Owl was paper pieces with the chevron paper from the Bold & Blooming paper pack and the wings from Turquoise Sea Cardstock. I stamped the owl and greeting on the stitched rectangle panel in Sweet Mango ink, adding the paper piecing right over the top with just it's feet peeking from below. The panel was matted with black cardstock add added to a cardbase trimmed with patterned papers from both Petite Patterns and Spring Parade.
One more very clean and simple, owl card. This is stamped directly on an ivory card base and colored with Chameleon pencils. I added a 1" strip of patterned paper from the Parisian Garden paper pack and a few sequins to finish the card.
Grand Greetings is the new incentive set available with a $75 purchase. I combined the crisp greeting with the images from Bold & Blooming for a simple, but colorful one-layer card. The floral image is colored with Copic markers.
This simple one-layer card was created by using Post-It tape for masking, Wild Dandelion ink and sponge daubers to create the visual interest pattern. The greeting from Grand Greetings and the balloon and string from Happy Spring were added with Black Onyx ink. I used a 1 1/4" circle punch and a post-it note to create a protective mask for the outer edges of the balloon, and then I sponged in some Wild Dandelion ink to create a 3-D look.
