Sympathy in Cantaloupe

Trying out a Hostess Set that will be in the New Catalog Starting June 1st along with the New In-Color Crisp Cantaloupe!
I stamped the flower image with Versamark and then heat embossed using black embossing powder onto water color paper.  Then using the Classic Ink Pad with a little ink pressed into the lid, I colored the image with water and paint brush.  I feel I have more control over the amount of water I need doing it this way.  To give the image a little depth, I painted around it with some Soft Sky. Card base is Naturals Ivory with an Oval of Cantaloupe Crisp and image cut out using the Labels Collection Framelits.  Image popped up with dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by :-)

Water Color Flower Garden

I saw this technique and had to try it as I love to water color!  First emboss the water color paper with the Flower Garden Embossing folder.  Then I put a drop of Daffodil Delight re-inker onto a plastic lid with a little water and started painting the center.  I did the same with the Pretty in Pink and Gumball Green.  I wanted to highlight the edges of the flowers and stems a bit more for definition.  Once dry, I used the brush tip of my marker to make the raised areas a little darker.  I used the Color Spritzer Tool with the Crumb Cake marker to spray on some background color.  Embossed and sponged some butterflies, added a sentiment and some brads.  Easy Peasey!

Secret Garden Thank You

Well, I finally got my computer fixed!  It did not want to upload my photos from my camera, UGH!    I recently took a trip and had a good friend watch my Furry Feline Friends while we were away.   So I wanted to make a super special thank you card for her.  Her favorite color is Orange (see her birthday card) but decided to add a little extra color.

I started with a base of Whisper White card stock. Using the leaf from the Secret Garden Framlits, I cut out four leaves and lightly tacked them down with snail.  Next I filled a spritzer with Pool Party re-inker, Champagne Shimmer paint and rubbing alcohol and spritzed my paper.  After the paper dried I removed my leaf templates to reveal the white underneath them.  Next I stamped the flowers and then some leaves.  The Flower Trim was soaked in Pumpkin Pie re-inker and water and then placed on a paper towel to dry.  I really like the background, it really has depth.  I only wish I could pick up the shimmer on camera!

Thanks for stopping by :-)
