Here is the 2nd card made using the same technique as my last card, embossing and watercolor wash. The burst stamp is Simon Says Stamp from a card kit and the sentiment is Avery Elle. I put some pearls and braided ribbon from my stash and called it a card.
Todays card was inspired both by the Fusion Sketch and the French Pastry theme offered on the Fusion Card Challenge. I began by embossing watercolor paper with white powder, getting it really wet with plain wanter, than applying some of the new FW Pearlescent Liquid Acrylic mixed with water on my craft sheet to make a nice background wash. The stamp is from My Favorite Things, called “Romantic”. The other stamps are from Alte New “Henna Elements”, stamped with black versafine and clear embossing powder. The scallop border is Lawn Fawn.
Here is the 2nd challenge for the Operation Write Home Virtual Card Making Party. This card calls for a Thank You sentiment. I chose to incorporate this Fusion sketch and July Simon Says Stamp Card Kit. In addition, I used Hero Arts “Type” stamp set as well as “Dude” from Simon Says Stamp. Background is Impression Obsessions “scratch” stamp. Inks are Hero Arts in Soft Brown, Granite, and Red Royal. Dies are My Favorite Things and Lifestyle Crafts.
Today I’m back to playing with my May Simon Says Stamp Card Kit. I used a Tiddly Inks Digital Image and colored her w/copics. The design is based on the Fusion Challenge which allows you to use the sketch, the picture inspiration or both, which I did. The music clouds are stamped with a stamp from Our Daily Bread called “Amazing Grace” and the sentiment also from ODB is called “Ornate Frame Sentiments”. The cloud background is from a Darice embossing folder. I stamped the dots on the circle with a stamp from Impression Obsession and cut out the clouds with a lawn fawn die from “Into the Woods”. Finally, I used some distress ink in Antique Linen to edge the card.
Thanks for checking out my card! Happy Sunday.
