Just a Note – Silhouette

Hi! I’m here today with a quick post. I don’t seem to have much time to make cards “just for fun” right now, but here’s number two for today!Slide003I applied masking fluid through the ARTplorations stencil Bloom Silhouettes onto watercolor paper,

preview-web-stencil-045-BloomSilhouettesallowed it to dry and then did some watercoloring. Slide004I removed the masking fluid and then replaced the stencil and sponged on some dark blue ink.Slide001 Then I used a combination of cutting with a paper trimmer and some fussy cutting to trim down the panel.    Slide005

I stamped the sentiment onto the card base and onto the panel.

I attached the panel to the card base and popped it up with some foam tape.Slide002

This was a fun card to make and would be quick and easy to duplicate.

Thanks for stopping by!

Allowed the paint to dry, removed the masking fluid, then I stamped the sentiment.

Then I used (more NBUS) two of the CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies.

Sweet Summer – Emboss Resist

Today I have a one layer, emboss-resist card to share with you.

IMG_5436edited_edited-1I used a Little Tangles free digital stamp on this card. I used my VersaMark marker to trace the the Sweet Summer sentiment and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

Next, I stamped over the sentiment with a variety of stamps from PTI’s Bitty Bouquets, Wee Folks and Brushed Blooms stamp sets.

I’m going to play this at Uniko Studio’s: Challenge #21: Flowers, ATCAS’ Challenge #64 – Animal and Little Tangles Challenge #56- Clean and Simple.

You are My Sunshine, 3

 I’m happy to share a card with you today.

IMG_5006editedFor this card I made my own stencil, used some patterned paper (which I bought in a shop in my mother’s hometown, Dunoon, Scotland) and used home made embossing paste. Casology’s: Music and CAS(E) this sketch! #123 were the beginning of the inspiration for this card. If you’d like to can look at my #1 and #2 versions of You are My Sunshine cards.I am also going to play this card over at Mixed Media’s Challenge # 11: Wings,  at LIM’s Week #224 Theme:Hello Sunshine and at ATCAS Challenge #63 + DT CALL too.
