I used the colour scheme and the layering to come up with my card design.
I embossed the free-form rose stamp from Printworks in three colours on three layers that were die cut with a curved edge. I finished off with a sentiment from Technique Tuesday and added a few enamel dots.
I really like this photo and took inspiration from all the white space, the cubbies, the pink and pool colours and the hydrangea on the desk.
I white embossed the hydrangea from Hero Arts and watercoloured it and the background with Distress Markers. The background was done with Embossing Paste and the Mini Cubist Stencil from The Crafters Workshop and the sentiment is Paper Smooches Quote Tag. I finished off with some ribbon and a cute clothespin.
For this card I used one of the butterflies from the Butterfly Kisses stamp set to make my medallion. I think it's a pretty fun look, though I do like my first card better. You can check out that one here.
I chose the tree trunk from Through the Trees stamp set and inked it up in a rainbow of colours. I love how it turned out! I finished off with a sentiment from Stylish Sentiments Birthday and added a few pearls.
I have another image already picked out for my next card and hope to get a chance to make it.
I used W&W's The Big, The Bold and The Happy cut file for the journaling card and inked it up in Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves. I added some paint specks of Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine and a few stars from Memory Box.
My next card is for the Stencil Challenge and it is....well....busy and bright. I thought I would mix some patterns and I'm not happy with the outcome but crafting is all about experimentation right?
It's my first time playing in The Cutting Edge Challenge, but I do have to mention that it is only the 2nd challenge over there. It's a newbie challenge blog so go check it out here and see what it's all about!
Here is the inspiration photo.
Don't you just love the drippy colours!
Here's my take on it.
I watercoloured my background in colours similar to the inspiration project and used Paper Smooches Super 2 Die. I framed the scene with thin strips of black paper, added my sentiment and a few gems.
I just love how the colourful flowers contrast against the bold design of the black and white.
I went for a graphic look and created my background by using painter's tape and masking off a chevron pattern and inking it up with Black Soot Distress Ink.
The Stencil Flower from Hero Arts was white embossed onto watercolour paper and coloured with Distress Inks in Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves. To get the inks to blend I sprayed them heavily with water and one quick spray of Perfect Pearls.
I finished off with a sentiment from Altenew and a few embellishments.
