  • Thank You Flowers

    A flower thank you card, stamped onto dk grey & colored w/ Prismacolor pencils & a white gel pen. Be sure to check my post for hints & colors used..
    A big congrats to Amber, the newest Featured Stamper (FS836)! She has a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the layout & flower thank you theme, but used different images, dies & colors. Instead of using the white wash like she die, i used Prismacolor pencils on my flowers.

    For my card, I die cut the dk grey panel using the 2nd largest mini slimline die. By coincidence, it is just the right size for an A2 card. I used my Misti, both flowers & a pair of leaves from the stamp set along w/ the masks for the flowers (comes w/ the set), to stamp the images using gray flannel ink. Prismacolor pencils & a white Signo pen were used to color them. I die cut a pale grey & dusty pink panel to layer beside the dk grey.

    The single flower was stamped onto a piece of the pale grey & again, colored w/ Prismas & a white Signo. This flower was die cut & popped up on foam. For the greeting tag, I stamped it w/ versaclair & clear embossed it. I used the smallest tag to die cut it. Then I moved the die a couple of times..both up from the bottom & in from both sides to make a much smaller tag.

    Here are the Prismacolor pencils I used (listed on the pic in order from left to right). The pencils to the right of the white pencil are the ones I used on the single flower. The others were used on the flowers on the grey background. Those colors were too peachy to match when I colored in the single flower on the very light grey paper. Colors usually look totally different depending on what color you use for your background. For the bright white edges of the petals, I used the white gel pen & immediately softened it a bit w/ a water brush. The gel ink is pretty much water soluble (until it dries) & I wanted it to look a little softer & blend in more. 

    Thanks so much for stopping by!

  • You Pinwheel

    A big congrats to Deb, the newest Featured Stamper (FS786) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS card to case. I kept the circle elemental surrounded by the pinwheel arms, but used different images, dies & colors & left off the bottom band.

    For my rainbow pinwheel, I die cut the pinwheel cover out of white & black & I used scraps of the rest of the colors to cut just the sections I wanted. I die cut a couple extra out of white & stacked the white frame to elevate it a bit. All of the black outlines were placed inside the frame & then the various colors. A white circle & a black outline circle were cut & popped up. I die cut the black You a few times & stacked it on top of the white shadow die then stamped the two little words & cut them out to add underneath.
