I thank the Lord Jesus Christ for the talent He has bestowed on all of us!
I have been artistic all of my life and love experimenting with different mediums and techniques. This blog is my creative outlet to share my passion for cardmaking and papercrafting!
If you have not had a
chance to visit us at the Artistic Outpost blog yet, I hope you will do so-
inspiration is posted several days a week by my DT Sisters and they are all so talented!
To create a card:
paper, apply Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo, Perfect Plum and Rich Razzleberry-
spritz with water and mix the colors.
Dry with the Heat
Tool and apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Distress Ink- Worn Lipstick and Picked
Raspberry, dilute with water, dry with the Heat Tool and once dry, repeat the
process with Ranger® Tim Holtz® Distress Crayons- Picked Raspberry and Seedless
Once the panel is
dry, de-static the paper with an Embossing Buddy®, ink the Bottle Caps Background stamp using Versamark™ Ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Clear Embossing
Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
Once the embossing is
dry, use a damp paper towel to left the watercolor from the background.
Cut the panel with
the Big Shot™ with the Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) Double Stitched Rectangle
Trim a piece of Basic
Black cardstock a bit larger than the die cut background, mount onto the Extra Thick Whisper White card base and mount
the watercolor background panel using dimensional foam.
Ink the images from Harvest
and Ice Cream Shoppe along with the Ice Cream Shoppe sentiment onto Whisper
White cardstock with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink.
Color the Harvest and Ice Cream Shoppe images with
Stampin’ Write Markers- Sweet Sugarplum, Soft Suede, Tip Top Taupe along with
Flirty Flamingo using an AquaPaiinter™ to blend the colors and apply Clear Wink
of Stella® to the ice cream images.
Use a clear envelope
and scribble Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum markers, spritz the ink, cover
with another portion of the clear envelope to mix the ink and randomly press portions
of the sentiment into the ink.
Ink the splatter stamp
from Grunge Elements with the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Write Marker, stamp onto the
sentiment, die cut with ODBD Double Stitched Rectangle Dies.
remaining images, mount the fussy cut images along with the sentiment onto Basic
Black cardstock, fussy-cut a thin border around all of the images.
Add a looped piece of
Silver Cord to the card front and mount the Ice Cream Shoppe images as well as
the sentiment with dimensional foam to finish off the card.
I had fun with this
Watercolor Lifting Technique and will have to play with this technique again
