Holiday Series - Day 12

A simple card with some watercolor wash background is here today. I created the background with 3 shades of blue on a watercolor paper and cut the paper to size so that I can mat it onto the white cardstock. Before matting, I created a starry background using a 'stars' embossing folder.

From the remaining watercolored sheet, I die cut 3 'merry' word die cuts using the Winnie and Walter 'Merry' die. Adhered these words onto the embossed watercolored sheet and then added some sequins. Finished of the card by adhering this onto a cardstock.

The card has a monochromatic look to it. Here it is,

Holiday Series - Day 9

Wow, day 9 already and am doing good. Today, I struggled a bit for some ideas but then my eyes fell on my newly bought distress markers and I just played along with them.

For this card, I created a background with distress markers - salty ocean, evergreen bough and weathered wood on a watercolor paper and I am in love with the outcome. Cut a panel of white cardstock with my newest Thanksgiving purchase from MFTStamps - the stitched rectangle frames dies. Adhered the panel onto the watercolor paper. A snawflakes with some KindyGlitz on it was perfect along with the sentiment from Lawn Fawn 'Merry Messages'.

Finshed off the card by adhereing the entire panel to a white cardstock.

#66 - Mixed Media Page

Hellloo,

I did say I have a couple of projects to post today. My next one is a simple mixed media page which I made for the Happy Little Stampers DT Call. Off late, I have been watching lots of videos by Marta Lapkowska and I love watching them. She is an amazing artist and so very inspiring.

Here is my page,


I started off on n old cardstock. To creted a little texture I randomly stuck some old washi tape on it(you can see if you look closely) and then applied some Heavy Gesso from Art Basics. Added the color to the page using Gansi Tanbi watercolors and sprays of water. The stuck the wooden embellishments(frame with pearls), chipboards, flowers, metallic wire and stamens. I then added clear glitter randomly using soft gel medium. Added the two sentiments from Tim Holtz Small Talk sticker sheet. Finally, sprayed some Dylusions Mica Sprays over the page.

#65 - Watercolors

Back with  few cards after another short break. This time decided to do some watercoloring. I came across the DT call for Happy Little Stampers and thought of giving it a go.

Here is my card,


I started off with a watercolor wash on the Tim Holtz Distress watercolor cardstock with shades of blue using my brand new Gansai Tambi watercolors(my anniversary gift along with a few other goodies ;-) ). I then heat embossed the opposite corners using the Tim Holtz Flourish stencil. For my focal point, I did the emboss resist watercoloring technique with the flowers from the Penny Black Blooming Garden set and fussy cut them. Stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from the My Favorite Things. Used foam tape to adhere the watercolored flowers at the center. Finally, layered this onto a black cardstock to complete the card.
