For my first project, I used the Clouds stencil and inked using the edge of the stencil to create a sky in blues, pinks and purples. I stamped the balloons from Tweet Love, coloured them with matching Copics and fussy cut them. The sentiment is die-cut using Everyday Sentiments.
For my second card I used the Petals2 stencil for creating a monoprint instead of applying ink through it. I used Distress Ink pads in Mustard Seed, Abandoned Coral and Peacock Feathers directly onto the stencil, misted it with water and pressed against watercolour paper. I die cut the monoprint and another piece of shimmering silver card using Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies. I then added some gorgeous mandala die cuts from Bloomdala Bliss: Felicity using the same grey shimmering card. Last, I heat embossed one of the lovely sentiments from Bloomdala Bliss in white onto black card and added a few clear adhesive gems for that little extra bling.
For my third card, I used the Brick Wall stencil to create my background. I used various shades of red and brown inks to create the brick wall, and splattered water onto the card for extra interest. Then I die cut the panel using Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies. I stamped the beautiful florals from Softly and watercoloured them with Distress Inks. Last, I stamped one of the sentiments from Noteworthy 3 onto vellum.
I hope you enjoyed the projects and are having fun hopping along with our blog hop!
