I know it's been a while since I posted - I had to even go back and see what size font I usually use!! LOL.
OK, I'm not going to bore you with the run down on the past month, suffice it to say - it has been crazy. Finally took some time to get some DT work done - not even close to finished and am leaving Monday to go up to the Manchester, New Hampshire Creative Keepsakes Show. Looking forward to that, but first I have to get done with my Spring Clean-Up at the Church on Saturday.
OK, enough of the excuses! Here is my show and tell for today:
Using the Friendship Flowers Set 702 from this month's reveal, I stamped the image with Versamark ink on white cardstock and heat embossed with Sienna.
I colored the image with watercolor pencils and a Dove Blender Pen. After it was dry I took my Versamarker Pen and "colored" each flower and then heat set with Clear Detail before cleaning the Versamarker tip, so as not to soil the colors of the different flowers. I worked from lightest to darkest in color). As you can see, this gave a lovely shine to the image:
I sponged some Memento Cantaloupe ink around the watering can image, in order to mute the starkness of the white background.
The circles were made using Spellbinders Standard and Grand Circles. After sticking a piece of Super Adhesive Sheet to white cardstock, I placed the biggest of the Standard and three of the smallest Grand circles on top of the prepared piece on a magnetic plate to keep the circles from moving and ran it through my embossing machine.
I started with the inner circle, pulling off the protective backing and applying Goldenrod Velvet Glitter to that piece. Brushed off the excess with the Glitter Brush and then proceeded with Luau Green and then Tiger Orange. I was trying to tie in the colors from the flowers in the image.
I used the next size Grand circle for the card front, which was attached to the white card base using the same die, but leaving a fold at the top of the white base to attach the card front to - I like to use Brushable Glue to bond the circles, as the glue gives a little wiggle room and you can line it up well before it sticks - for good!!
The friendship sentiment banner was stamped in Versamark and then heat embossed in Sienna, fussy cut and popped up with Dimensional Dots, which also prevents the circular card from rolling!
The glitter butterfly is a die from Spellbinders Fanciful Flight cut from a scrap of Super Adhesive Sheet attached to a scrap of white cardstock. After removing the protective backing I sprinkled three Velvet Glitters - Daisy first, then Golden Rod, then Luau Green, burnishing it well with my finger. It was attached to the card front with Dimensional dots.
I'd like to enter my card in the Stampotique Designers Challenge: SDC 191: Circles
Hope you've enjoyed your stay today. Thanks so much for stopping by.
