Hello everyone. I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.
I thought I would share with you today a couple of cards that I will be teaching at our local stamp store - The Paper Pickle on Feb 24 & March 2. If you are local and would love to take my class, please call the store to register, I believe the March 2 class is almost full.
The first card I started by stamping the image (Penny Black - charming) using black memento and then coloured the image using prismacolour pencils. I also stamped off one of the flowers again (2nd from the right) coloured and popped it up. Sponging was done around the edges,then I used a stencil for the top right corner, and applied more sponging to get the design to show. To finish off I added some glitter and sequins.
For the second card I used a memory box flower die, cut it out of white cardsotck, sponged the stem and flower using distress inks. On the layer (just before the card base) I sponged some distress inks, kept measuring how much I needed to extend the ink by placing my die cut scallop circle in place. One I was happy with the sponged area I splatted some distress ink with a paint brush (love doing this, I need to do this more, love the look). I punched some butterflies using Martha Stewart's butterfly punch, added colour with distress inks. Finished this card off with a rhinestone in the center of the larger butterfly and popped the flower up.
Be sure to stop back here on Feb 18th, this coming Thursday. I am helping Emily from Stamping Bella out on her big upcoming release, so I have sneak peak to show you. Can't wait to share with you.
Enjoy your day, see you Thursday,
