I began by inking a white panel with Distress Inks squeezed lemonade, candied apple & abandoned coral. Then I started playing by adding more ink through the stencil & spreading a thin layer of white Liquid Pearls. Nothing was turning out like I wanted, but I didn't want to start over. I die cut the panel with the SSS thin frame, taped the pieces in place on the back & removed the frame. Then I inked through the stencil with Versamark & embossed with Hero Arts Sparkle ep. That was what it needed!
The sentiment from Uniko Simply Said Blocks was matted & popped up. I can't get most Nuvo Drops to make round drops, but recently I discovered that the Jewel Drops work fine for me. The Limoncello drops were the perfect finishing touch. I'm also entering WAW.
Next is the card I sent for May CCC. I had such fun using the Tim Holtz wreath dies & the little daisies that were included in a card I received previously from a CCC partner.
The sentiment is from HA/GK Friendship Blooms & I used white gouache for the splatters. Hard to tell, but the flower centers are covered in Stickles.
Here's the card I made for the ITP PTI challenge to use cardstock scraps. I save even very small scraps of my PTI cardstock & it's amazing how often I am able to die cut from them. For this card I die cut scraps of Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, Tropical Teal, Weathervane & Smokey Shadow.
The products are Feathered Friends 8, Twig Wreath, Harvest Berries (flower centers), Bold Blooms & Essential Sentiments. The card base is Soft Stone & I stamped the leaves in Weathervane, the flowers in Soft Stone & the flower centers in Tropical Teal. I added Smokey Shadow splatters, Star Dust Stickles (flower centers) & Hero Arts Blue Ombre sequins. Amazing the difference with just rounding the corners! I'm also entering The Snippets Playground.
GK Monthly Mix Challenge. It's been a long time since I used Karen Dunbrook's acrylic paint technique & it's always fun to see how the background turns out.
The sentiment from GK A Big Hello was stamped in Versafine Clair Nocturne. The die cut butterfly from the set was heat embossed with JudiKins Black Diamond ep.
Finished off with a strip of printed paper, black & white splatters and black & white Pico Embellisher dots.
