TCC30 Thinking of You- Mixed Media with MIX106 and SR270
Here is another card that I created for The Card Concept #30 “Thinking of You” Challenge along with the SR270 Watercoloring Challenge and the MIX106 I Love Color Challenge :-)
I did not have a floral image with a vase, so I decided to use the inspiration photo to draw a quick sketch with a Faber-Castell® Pitt Pen Black marker on watercolor paper :-)
Again, I hope you have had a chance to check out both challenge sites!
To create this card:
Once the image is complete, use Rexel Derwent® Watercolor Pencils along with an AquaPainter™ to color the flowers.
Allow the watercolor to dry, apply Mod Podge™ to the flowers to create a mask.
Carefully apply Studio 490® Wendy Vecchi® Crackled Texture Paste to the vase and use a Heat Tool to dry.
Once dry, color the background with additional watercolor pencils and dilute with water.
Ink the Dictionary stamp using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and distress the edges with the Distressing Tool.
Apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Vintage Photo Distress Ink to the edges and background.
Mount the panel onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.
Distress a piece of Botanical Gazetter Designer Series Paper (DSP) using the Distressing Tool, apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Vintage Photo Distress Ink to the edges and adhere to the Basic Black card base.
Mount the watercolored panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Stamp the sentiment using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and create the banner ends using the Hexagon Punch.
Trim and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, creating the banner with the Hexagon Punch and distress the paper a bit with Ranger® Tim Holtz® Vintage Photo Distress Ink and the Dictionary background stamp.
Mount the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add the Pearls to finish off the card.
