Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday!!
Welcome to the first day of the Pretty Pink Posh September 2017 Product Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from the Shannon McComb’s blog you are on the right track.
For my first card, I used brand new Autumn Blooms stamp set along with the Thoughtful Greetings sentiment stamp set. The Autumn Blooms set contains small flower & leaf images but we can create a bigger flowers with this set!
I started by stamping small flowers (from the Autumn Blooms set) onto the watercolour panel randomly using VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink. I then freely painted a circle around the middle of each flower using Festive Berries, Mustard Seed, Scattered Straw Distress inks and a wet paint brush. Once the watercoloured panel was dry, I stamped leaves (from the Autumn Blooms set) between the flowers, and then coloured them with Mowed Lawn Distress ink and water brush. I added some red & yellow ink splatters as well. It’s not difficult is it?
For the sentiment, I used the Thoughtful Greetings stamp set. I heat embossed the “thank you” sentiment on black card stock in white, trimmed it down, and then put it up on the watercoloured floral panel using foam tape.
For my second card, I used the Stitched Foliage dies and the Angel Friends stamp & die set along with the Giving Thanks stamp set.
I die cut the stitched leaves from watercolour paper using the Stitched Foliage dies, adhered them on an A2 sized watercolour paper panel using glue pen. I then ink blended on it with Spiced Marmalade, Crushed Olive, Wild Honey, Victorian Velvet Distress inks and mini ink blending tool. I roughly brushed the inked leaves with a wet paint brush – Distress inks react with water. Once the panel was dry, I mounted it on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added white ink splatters and a few 3mm clear sequins.
For those adorable angels, I stamped them (from the Angel Friends set) on white card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink, coloured them with Copic markers, and then die cut them with the matching dies. For the sentiment, I used the Giving Thanks stamp set.
For my last card, I used the Angel Friends stamp & die set along with the Winter Wonderland set. Yay! I love Christmas card!!
I heat embossed snowflakes (from the Winter Wonderland set) on watercolour panel in white, and then made a snowy night scene using Peerless watercolors and a wet paint brush. Of course, I added white ink splatters and clear sequins!
I watercoloured all adorable images – angels, eskimo girl, polar bear, igloo – with Peerless watercolors.
