Bursting into Fall with A Blog Named Hero

Hello! Hero Arts friends!  

The Crafty Nurse here with another project using the Fall Color Layering set by Hero Arts for the A Blog Named Hero July “Masculine” challenge. 

For this card I broke out the Color Bursts using the oranges, reds yellows, and browns scattering them from dark to light.  I used the sepia as a watercolor to create a ground then stamped the tree using the Hero Arts fall ink cubes.  I stamped the sentiment and then ran the panel through an embossing folder for extra texture. 

There is only a few days left to enter.  We really want to thank Hero Arts for sponsoring this months challenge!  Happy inking! 

A Day For Daisies: Add Flowers Challenge Showcasing “It’s a Child’s World 2-26-16

It’s Friday!  Yeah!  We are starting a new challenge at A Day For Daisies and adding some flowers to our projects this week.  For our images, the design team is showcasing images from “It’s a Child’s World.”  The challenge will run through Thursday, March 10th at noon on the A Day For Daisies Blog!

For my card today I used the sweet image called, “Dolls Margaret Evans Price Style.”  I colored the images with Copic Markers and added Prisma pencils to add some detail.  The sky was created with Pan Pastels using a cloud stencil from my stash. 

For my tree, I kept a background made with Ken Oliver Color Bursts and used a My Favorite Things tree die for the branch.  I then took white flowers and colored them in the same Copic’s used for my image, then added gems.

A Day For Daisies: Add Watercolor Challenge Showcasing “Native Hearts” 11-20-15

It’s Friday and time for a new challenge at A Day For Daisies!  This week we are adding “Watercolor” to our projects using the showcase images from “Native Hearts”.  The challenge will run through Thursday, December 3rd at noon on the A Day For Daisies Blog!

For my card today I used the sweet image called, “Tree Top Dreams”  I began by using Ken Oliver’s Color Burst’s Watercolor pigments in Sepia, Yellow Ochre, and Burnt Orange.  I then applied Distress Ink through Tim Holtz stencils in woodgrain and Dot Fade. The grass was also created with Distress Inks and stamped with an Impressions Obsession’s crackle stamp.

The “Tree Top Dreams” image was colored in copic markers and distressed.  My “You” sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp die joined with a WPlus9 “Hand Lettered Thanks” image.  Finally, the stitched leaves are a Lawn Fawn die.
