Hope it's a happy Monday for you.
Spent the morning creating, definitely in my 'happy place'.
Lexi Daly challenges us this week, at PTI,
to ground out sentiments with a strip.
Her video gives several examples, and helps to
visually create a base for our card's focal die cut.
Once started, I couldn't stop!
Stamping and card making have that effect!
1st of 3 cards for my set, uses Noted: Scallop Square die
for a card base.
Sunflower Bouquet (the vault), stamped with Hero Arts Wet Cement
and watercolored with Zig pens.
Sentiment embossed onto the stitched banner from Tag Sale: Quilted.
Next card on the die card base from Make It Market Don't Forget to Write.
Watercolored the image again, and used the 'note' die from the set.
Last vase of sunflowers is first die cut from Smoky Shadow,
stamp embossed in gold,
then the image is carefully brushed with bleach,
a MIM technique Heather Nicholes showed us a while back.
Then I watercolored the bleached part.
I love having sets like this handy during the holidays.
They make such sweet hostess gifts!
