Thank you

thankyou

For this card I wrote out the Thank You using a Tombow brush pen in black ink and then cut around the words.  Using the new Elinor Background stamp from Simon Says Stamp, I stamped over the top of the words using Broken China Distress Ink. Next I layered various additional colors of Distress Ink, Seedless Preserves, Mustard Seed and Vintage Photo. I spritzed it all with water and applied some heat to set everything.

The base of the card is from Hero Arts and coordinated perfectly with the Broken China ink. I also used Distress Ink on the card base, Broken China and Vintage Photo, and then spritzed that with water and dabbed with a towel.  I really like how the coated card base reacted with the Distress Ink and water.

When everything was dry, I used a Ranger collage stick to apply the words to the base and Glossy Accents to apply the Mermaid sequins from Lucy’s Cards, an exclusive from Hero Arts.

I have added this card to my Etsy shop here.

Fall Flower Frenzy – Bling added

I went back to this piece today because I thought it needed a little something extra.  I added some white gel pen and some Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins and clear droplets. This feels much better now!

Day of the Dead – Beautiful

fullsizerender-63

I did some offset stamping of this wonderful image from Stampers Anonymous and then watercolored the image with Distress Ink. I used Distress Ink on the background and the card base and then added some Wink of Stella clear glitter over the black ink and the heart.  I colored clear sequins with Copic markers and applied them with Glossy Accents. I then spritzed with water, the image and the card base separately before putting them all together.  The sentiment inside the card is from Simon Says Stamp and it reads “Beautiful”.

I’ve added this to my Etsy shop which you can see here.
