Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great week. The roads are finally getting cleared off and kids will be heading back to school today which means DH will be heading back to work as well. I've been enjoying my "Snowed-In" days! I have two Splitcoast Challenge card to share…first up is Believe using Sketch #577 for today.
Creative Nugget: I haven't used this watercolor technique in ages…simply color directly on the stamp with markers, give a quick spritz of water and stamp. Colors were chosen to match the Penny Black designer paper. SU! markers were used on the pretty flower images in the Nature Silhouettes stamp set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. The popped up sentiment comes from the Words of Faith Collection 1 stamp set which is part of the Creative Worship brand of stamps being launched by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps this Friday! Bible Journaling stamps are also perfect for card making! Love that pop of pink!
My second card was done for the Technique Challenge on Monday using a stencil for embossing. (The link above includes a video tutorial on how to do this.)
Creative Nugget: A stencil was used to emboss the fun design on the background. While the stencil was still in place, colorful distress inks were sponged onto the design. Don't you love those pops of color! The candies and gumball machine are part of the Sweet as Candy Digital Stamp Set and the sentiment is from Candy Sentiments 2. A few colorful sequins finish off the card.
These cards will be submitted for the following challenges:
DoubleClickSkittles Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafty Girls Creations - Anything Goes
Fan-Tastic Tuesday Challenge #121 - Anything Goes with a Twist (Add Flowers)
Crazy 4 Challenge C4C320 - Add some POP (Pops of Color, Popped up images)
Thanks so much for stopping by…Believe in the one who made this day for you to enjoy!
