Look at this SUPER FUN challenge this week over on the Moxie Fab World Blog here:
I decided to play aroung with the watercolor stamping and I had a BLAST!! =)
I ended up making several cards for gift sets so that I'd have a collection of gifts readdy to give away when I needed a fast present!! =)
I used the Beautiful Butterflies Stamp Set from Paper Trey Ink!! I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Victorian Velvet, Wild Honey, Scattered Straw, and Persimmon. I inked up the stamps and then instead of spraying them with water I decided to try something new and I sprayed them with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in the color of Butternut Squash. I stamped it on white cardstock and then cut out the butterflies and layered two together to give a dimensional effect.
I LOVE the way that the glimmer mist adds just a hint of sparkle!! It is really preey in real life!!
For the next effect I decided to white emboss the butterfly and sentiment and then do a watercolor over the top of the embossing for a resist look!! I LOVE the way they turned out!!
I also learned a NEW embossing technique after taking the online class A Cut Above!! It is still going on and MAN have I learned alot of NEW techniques!! If you aren't taking the class and you have a cutting/embossing machine you'll want to take it!! =)
You can find out more about it here http://www.onlinecardclasses.com
I learned how to Double Emboss and I am having SO much fun playing with this technique!!
I used a Lifestyle Crafts Embossing Folder and a Paper Trey Ink lable die to get the FUN Doble Embossed effect on the frot of my cards!! I used a masking paper the block the lable so when I watercolored the lable I didn't get it on the embossed edge of the card!!
Here are some close up pictures of my cards!!
THANKS for stopping by and have a FABULOUS WEEK!! =)
