Psalm 46:1 -God is Our Refuge and Strength
I have another quick CAS Mixed Media card to share using the Floral Greetings (Graciellie Designs) and Peaceful Peonies Clear Stamp Sets (NinaB Designs)- both available from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps.
I decided to incorporate the FUSION 05/11/17 Challenge (Sketch Only) along with the CAS Watercolor Card Challenge "Flowers: for May and the Splitcoaststampers’ CC634 ColorChallenge.
Again, if you have not had a chance to visit the challenge sites or SNSS Blog/FB Page yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Ink the floral image from Floral Greetings Clear Stamp Set using embossing ink and stamp onto white cardstock. Heat emboss the image with black embossing powder and once the embossing has cooled, use a water brush to watercolor the image with water-based markers (Watercolor Wonder, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Delightful Dijon).
2). Create a watercolor wash for the background with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and add a few splatters.
3). Trim the panel and mount onto the black card base.
4). Heat emboss the sentiment from the Peaceful Peonies Clear Stamp Set with white embossing powder onto black cardstock, once cooled, create the banner points by hand.
5). Mount the sentiment onto the card front with dimensional foam.
6). To finish off the card, use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the flower petals and a Sharpie® Extra Fine White Paint Pen to add highlights to the flower centers.
Thanks again for stopping by- hugs and I hope all of you have a fabulous week!
