One Day at a Time

EDE84F8F-7FE6-4E37-8589-4E1FCDB15FF9Hello all!

I’m back with another card for the 30 Day Coloring Challenge. Pretty minimal colouring I must admit, but there is colouring.

I pulled a couple of prints for backgrounds using the Stencil Monoprint Technique with Distress Oxides.   This is the second print, as I wanted something light and airy. The first print has been saved for another card.

Next I stamped the gorgeous floral image in each corner. Then I loosely watercoloured a few of the flowers with the same inks.

I pulled out an oldie, but a goodie, sentiment stamp from Verve that I’ve used many times. I still love this stamp!

The panel was dry embossed and then I added some Deco Foil in to the centres of the flowers with a glue pen. You can see it below.


Back soon with more my sweet friends…

Still playing with my Prismacolor pencils today for Day 2 of The 30 Day Coloring Challenge. This time I’ve used some dark grey cardstock to make a one-layer card.

Another floral image (swoon).  Probably 90% of my stamps are florals. My love for flowers in the yard extends into my studio, especially since we have such a short growing season. Why not be surrounded by what you love year round?

The image was heat embossed in white and then I got to work colouring. Instead of using OMS for blending, I used my white pencil. No sentiment this time. While I could have added one on vellum, sometimes it’s nice to have a few generic cards around for any occasion. It was finished with my usual smattering of sequins.

Back soon with more my sweet friends…
