30 Day Coloring Challenge – Day 13

I love to make color bursts with alcohol ink on yupo paper so when I saw Sandy Allnock do something similar  with Brusho watercolor pigment powders I had to give it a go.  I love the variety of textures you can get from either the amount of water or the composition of the pigment.  The fun part is that you are never quite sure what is going to happen!

Gratitude

The background is a variety of copic inks in reds, oranges and yellows on Yupo paper.  After I applied some abstract patterns, I placed a stencil on top and and tapped in some Colorless Blender. “Gratitude” is hand lettered with a Copic medium brush pen on manila folder paper and then stained and inked with reds and purples and a Vintage Photo brown from Distress.

Love Mixed Media

I took some photo paper and applied some Copic ink and Ranger metallic mixative together with some Copic Colorless Blender. When it was completely dry, I used it with the new Simon Says Stamp Hearts Mingle Die. After hand lettering in chalk, I placed hearts around the Love – a good place for hearts to be.

You’re my Special-Tree

I heat embossed the Simon Says Stamp Ranunculus with Ranger gold embossing powder and then I continued to layer the gold embossing powder on top of that. Then, I die cut that gold piece with the new Hero Arts Star Confetti die.  I found these adorable wood cut trees at Target and all of that was placed onto a Hero Arts piece of red shimmery card stock.

Thanks

I pounced alcohol inks in green and metallic gold on to Yupo paper.  I found the die cut leaves at Target and colored some of them with Distress. Putting some foam under the Yupo, I adhered it to some Neenah Desert Storm card stock. For the “thanks” sentiment from Simon Says Stamp, I used Ranger Carnation Red Archival Ink and experimented stamping it directly onto a piece of foam. The card is finished with an acorn accent from Little B.
