I stamped Melanie Meunchinger's beautiful large Fabulous Rose Frame image in Distress Ink on watercolor paper and continued watercoloring using the distress inks. I then die cut the painted image and added it to my card base with foam dimensional tape. The belly band was stamped and heat embossed on Metallic Silver cardstock, and I added the white oval that was stamped on layering weight white cardstock and I added a bit of coloring with a matching Copic marker.
Again, I used the gorgeous frame. This time, I stamped with Kraft ink on Kraft cardstock. Then colored with neutral colored Primacolor pencils. I used the coordinating die to cut out the image, then decided to use a craft knife to also cut out the interior of the frame. I determined proper placement, then used my MISTI to stamp and heat embossed the greeting in gold onto a Charcoal Brown card base. Then I added the Rose Frame with dimensional foam tape.
Theresa Momber's amazing images lend fabulously for scene building. I used glossy paper and foam ink blenders and inexpensive small makeup smudge brushes to create this scene for the heron image from The Wetlands 2.
For this Wetlands 2 card, I created a second card using glossy paper. I used Stazon ink to stamp the dragonfly and cattails, then added more Gina K Designs inks to create this hazy summer scene. I applied a watered down layer of liquid glue to the dragonfly wings and dusted them with an iridescent glitter.
Next up, are a few cards created with the new incentive set, Nurturing Blooms.
This new incentive set (free with your $75 order), is a stunning silhouette set. It's crisp floral images make very quick but elegant cards. Absolutely perfect when you need a last minute card!
I added the hydrangea image to a Lovely Lavender and Wild Lilac inked oval for a quick thinking of you/encouragement card.
This card uses two overlapping floral silhouettes in front of a Powder Blue inked strip for an uplifting card.
