Harlequin Floral

62E62CE1-82F7-422B-BA60-578EDB5F03C5Happy to have yet another card for my stash thanks to the 30 Day Coloring Challenge.

Another Stencil Monoprint background. If you’ve never tried this technique, I did a tutorial for Splitcoaststampers

Then I heat embossed this gorgeous floral image in white. Using the same three colours of Distress Inks I watercoloured the image. This time I added some shading with a Zig Clean Color marker.

A sentiment and some little gems complete the card.

Back soon with more my sweet friends.

Mr. & Mrs.

01133D28-75F8-4A7C-9BAA-9E7C46290E79My cousin asked me to make a card for his daughter’s wedding which is today.

Thought my jumping off point would be this gorgeous paper from the Simon Says Stamp June Card Kit. Looked through my stamps  for floral and leaf stamps with the same feel. Next I played with some of my Zig markers to approximate the colours. All were fussy cut.

The frame, flower and leaves were all heat embossed in silver, as was the sentiment. My usual smattering of sequins complete the card. Happy to have another card made for the 30 Day Coloring Challenge.

Back soon with more my sweet friends.

0997CCFA-5232-4747-9D17-4AA35E4318DDMy card for Day 6 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge.  Today I experimented with a bolder palette. Sort of feel I need my sunglasses for this one. But it was fun playing outside my comfort zone.

I stamped and heat embossed this gorgeous floral background stamp from Simon Says. Then grabbed my Zig Clean Color brushes and a paintbrush.

Once dry it was die cut. A simple stamped sentiment and a smattering of sequins complete the card.

Back soon with more my sweet friends.
