My card started with a very old stencil by Club Scrap from the October 2001 kit club. The colors were Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Red Royal, Butter Ball and Dusty Blue. I thought the “Like Fireworks” sentiment worked perfectly as she lights the way forward. I think the sentiment also works for 4th of July themed cards.
I hope you find some time to get crafty today. We are all over at the Technique Junkies Facebook Page so if you haven’t stopped by, we’d love to see you! You still have until June 8th to buy any June Release stamp at 15% off over at the Technique Junkies store.
Day 9 journal page uses distress stains, distress inks, and saran wrap dipped in water. As you know, distress inks are water soluble, so it makes for a great texture. The trees are a Club Scrap stencil and the “moon” is a foam stamp from Claudine Helmuth.
Day 10 page was supposed to use Inktense blocks, however, not having these, I used some watercolor crayons. After applying the crayons in squares, I watered them down and doodled over them with the Molotow markers.
Day 28 is using Embossing Pastes and Sprays. I used Molding Paste with a Club Scrap Stencil from “Breathe” collection and sprayed Dylusions over that. Then I used some cut out collage pages we did earlier in the month to make my flowers collaging them on top. I then used Multi-medium to cover the flowers and highlighted them with the Pitt Brush Pen from Faber Castell. That’s a great technique if you haven’t tried it because you can make a pen mark and then wipe it away if you work quickly, leaving a halo surrounding the flowers. Only two more days left, then back to some card making. Woohoo!
