I have a card for this week's Make it Monday #158: Stamping with Water Color Mediums. I just got a couple of new Distress Ink colors (Mowed Lawn and Picked Raspberry), so I inked up Reasons to Smile and then spritzed with water before stamping. I like this technique, and want to try it again if I have time.
I fnished the flowers off with Pure Poppy and Black without any water, impressed with the Aida IP and then coated the flower centers with Wink of Stella. Gosh, how I love that Wink of Stella. I just ordered a second one, just in case mine runs out. I would not want to get caught without my Wink.
I was inspired by the color blocking on this card of Christina's, and decided to use this week's ColourQ cQc #235 colors with Wet Paint stamps and my new Zing Copper Embossing powder.
And one more card that I made the other day but did not get to post--my sister is turning 50 next week. (yes, she is my YOUNGER sister)...I had this idea to use a Technique Tuesday stamp that has a collage of numbers all together, and to highlight the '50'. I stamped once in Baja Breeze on a white piece cut with the Lil Inker Stitched Rectangle. Then, I stamped again in Calypso Coral on a scrap, cut out the 0 and the 5, coated them in a few layers of UTEE, and stuck them on top of the 0 and the 5.
When my daughter saw the card, she asked why it said 05? What do you think? I hope my sister gets it. I am thinking I may try another version where I just use a die cut 5 and 0.
That's it for me today.
