It’s Friday and time for A Day For Daisies Kit Club Release! In addition, we are still running the “All My Love” challenge so I sure hope you’ll pop by the ADFD Blog by February 11th at noon to enter your card for a chance to win some free images!
For my card today I chose “Stick Horse Ride” to color for you today. I used a combination of Kuretake Gamsi Watercolors and Copic Markers for this adorable image. I started by printing out the image, masking it with liquid masking fluid, then once that dried, watercolored deep pigment in several places to create whimsy. Once that dried, I removed the mask and colored in with Copics. Don’t be alarmed, sometimes the liquid masking fluid makes the printer ink run a little. I don’t think it’s noticeable so give it a try.
I die cut the large flag with a My Favorite Thing Die, used a Tim Holtz embossing folder, die cut my die-versions “happy” sentiment, splattered with more watercolor paint and finished up with stickles. Whew!
Here’s card 2 using the Simon Says Stamp January card kit and Operation Write Home’s Sketch 245. The tag die is Avery Elle cut from the cream card stock, then stamped Hero Arts Shadow Ink with the stamp set and added some Hero Arts gems. The “miss you” die is from Die-Versions from the OWH Fundraiser last year. I finished off the tag with some organza ribbon.
