The Crafty Nurse back with some inky inspiration for this wonderful early summer day! I hope you all get a chance to play a little in your craft room while you enjoy the gorgeous weather.
For my card today I used the new June release “By The Sea #SS060 Set of 6″ The technique today is from the Emboss or Die CD called, “Masked Spellbinders.” I also used July 2015 Palettini Collection “Shells #PS009″ which really works well with this new collection.
The sentiment is from “Beach Day #SDX071” simply stamped. After stamping the Mermaid I colored her in with Art Anthology “Black Leather Jacket” for extra sparkle and shine. I also added some free flow doodling around the edge of the masked area.
Thanks for stopping by the Technique Junkies Blog today and we all wish you lots of creative play today and always.
Bye, Bye for now!!
Happy Wednesday! It’s time for a sketch challenge at The House That Stamps Built. You can use the sketch as is or turn it on its head. Either way, let’s have some fun. As incentive, the lucky random winner will receive a $25.00 gift certificate to the Repeat Impressions store. Even better, if you use Repeat Impressions products, there is an extra entry coming your way. WooHoo!!
Let’s get started with the sketch:
The stamp featured is Repeat Impression’s Hot Air Balloon 9116-N colored with copic markers. The background is perfect pearl powders over versamark cut out with a My Favorite Things stitched circle die. My sentiment is Repeat Impressions, I Thank… 2523-G and I finished off with some Uniball Signo White Gel Pen dots.
I sure hope we see you at The House that Stamps Built this week! You have until Tuesday, June 28th to enter!
It’s Wednesday and time for the From The Heart Stamps Mid-Week Design Team Inspiration. Today, I made a Father’s Day card using the Hamlet PigWit “Tee It Up by From the Heart Digital Images. I began making the background as shown by Tim Holtz in the June Tag of the Month using his “stripes” stencil. Also, if you weren’t aware, Chemistry 101, 102, and 103 are now available through Online Card Classes. This is one of the best classes to learn more about Distress Inks.
For this image I used Copics and added some Hickory Smoke distress ink to the edges. The circle die is by My Favorite Things. One of the ways to make sure your colors match, is to make you own paper using Distress Ink, which I did with Barn Door behind my image. I created my own bricks by applying distress ink inside the embossing folder, running in through, then adding more ink when it’s out. Cool, Huh?
