Hi there. I'm so glad you stopped by!
This month's challenge is a little different.
My choice is WREATH.
First up is a New Home card.
I inked the leaves on this NUBS wreath with different colors of Distress Markers and
used a damp waterbrush to pull the color into the leaves. I followed up with some
watercolor pencils and splatter. Of course I stamped the sentiment crooked. So I tried again
and die cut it to pop over the boo boo. The Whittle birds was watercolored with some of
the same markers and my waterbrush.
I recently bought some more patterned paper to hoard. Wonder of wonders, I actually
let myself cut into a piece of it! And I die cut the design piece to show off a bit of the paper.
For my twofer...
I stamped the wreath off the edge of Mixed Media paper and heat embossed with gold powder
before watercoloring the leaves with Arteza Twimarkers.
What? Where's the shine?
Oh, here it is...
What will you choose?
Be sure to tell us what your choice is and make two different designs for two different
occasions using the same stamp, die or stencil.
Check out what our fantastic design team and Guest Designer, my dear friend Nancy,
have done to inspire you.
