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.

Floral Sympathy

9617DC42-ED5E-4E15-BDDF-1201EDC30EE7Sadly I need a couple of sympathy cards.  I’m always torn between something more somber and well…something like this.

I’m not in the habit of buying kits but when I saw the June Simon Says Stamp kit it literally took my breath away.

Today I decided to use some of the Moda Scrap designer paper from the kit. So many gorgeous designs to choose from!  The kit also has one of the new Tim Holtz 3D Texture Fades embossing folders in it. Love the effect…swoon.   I added some random bits of  deco foil to it after embossing. Here’s another picture showing the embossing and foil.

Next I heat embossed three flowers from the Beautiful Flowers stamp set from the kit. I watercoloured them with Distress Inks in similar colours.  The sentiment was heat embossed on some vellum to complete the card.  This card is for Day 5 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge.

Back soon with more my sweet friends.
