Hi there. I'm so glad you stopped by!
I have some exciting news to share.
I've joined the Design Team at my dear friend, Darnell's Twofer Challenge.
I am so excited to be joining the talented ladies at this fun challenge!
As you may have guessed, the challenge this month is...
I have so many flower stamps and dies. It was hard to choose, but this
MFT stamp won out.
I stamped the flowers with distress stain for a no-line watercolor look and
colored with some Distress Stain and Ink smooshed on my palette. I used a
damp waterbrush to pick up the color and paint the flowers.
When it was dry, I added some highlights to the nooks and crannies with
Caran d'ache Supracolor pencils.
I used the die to cut out the finished flowers and tucked them into
the die cut frame.
For my twofer...
I changed the orientation of my flowers and made a thinking of you card.
I stamped the flowers with VersaMark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
To color, I pressed Wilted Violet Distress Ink on my palette and sprinkled with
Pearl Perfect Pearls then mixed with a bit of water, picking the ink up with my waterbrush and
coloring the petals.
After I added the wash and it dried, I die cut the flowers and also die cut from Neenah.
Inset the Neenah die cut and added the colored flowers on top.
The flowers have a lovely shine.
I hope you'll visit the Twofer Challenge and check out the beautiful flowers
our talented Design Team have created to inspire you. And two of my awesome
friends, Brenda and Viv, are Guest Designing this month. Then I hope you'll add your
pretty blooms to the gallery.
Since I used Heat Embossing, I'll take this to
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
