I couldn't resist the first C&9 Throwback Thursday sale so I now own the beautiful Brushed Blossom stamp set & die plus a few other C&9 goodies. Decided to start by making a card with the die for the challenge at WCMC9.
My mediums are watercolor & heat embossing. I embossed the outline with SSS Antique Gold embossing powder. The coloring of the little pieces was done with Liquid Pearls Pink & Garden using a wet brush. I don't have much luck using them for embellishments, so I was glad to learn you can watercolor with them. They have a wonderful shimmer--gorgeous in person. I used thin foam adhesive for the large blossom & the other pieces are glued flat. The sentiment from the stamp set is also embossed with the Antique Gold. The background die cut is from a friend & that die may also end up at my house--love it! Finished off with some white & pale pink sequins. Classy & elegant is my favorite style, so this one makes me happy. I'm also entering CropStop & SSS Wednesday.
Next is a Christmas card for the MFT Sketch challenge using Trim the Tree--a set I got in one of the MFT sales a long time ago.
The fun tree was stamped in Distress Oxide Lucky Clover & I used Clear Star gel pen to color the little dots. MFT Stitched Oval Scallop Frames die cut was stacked 2 high & the sentiment from the same set was stamped in Distress Oxide Candied Apple. Decided to leave it pretty CAS & just added clear sequins. I'm also entering ModSquad, SSS Wednesday & Stamplorations. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
