Posts Tagged ‘Embossing/Dry or Heat’

For my 3rd week as a Guest Designer for the Color Challenge (CC775), we have a lavender, purple & mint green color combo w/ the dessert option of making a winter card. Since it’s been below freezing all day here & lows in the mid teens, I think it feels pretty much like this poor bear & his little bird friend look. 

After coloring the bear in the tree, I added the cute little bird (from another winter image) on one of the branches. It was good thing the SU neutrals are allowed, because I made liberal use of the browns, grays & merlot colors! For the bg, I die cut some stitched hills out of scratch paper & used them to sponge in the snow hills & purple/lavender sky. 

After it was sponged, I dry embossed it w/ a snowfall folder & added stickles to the snow. I used the purple inks to sponge the greeting die cut.

Here are the Copics I used, You can see by all the different greens & blue greens, I had to work to get that mint color for the hat & scarf. The purple shades were used just on the bg of the image circle. I didn’t feel like cutting a mask, lol, so I just used the Copics to mimic the sponging I did on the lg background.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC737), Stacy chose a group of tote bags. Lots to choose from & for my card, I was inspired by the bright colors of THIS tote bag. 

After I colored the daisies, I used a trio of blue Copics to color in the bg around the flowers. Thankfully it was a small area because it’s harder than it looks. And from experience, start w/ the lightest color first..it’s really hard to walk that dark color back, lol. I added a white frame to brighten it up a bit then attached it to the embossed orchid colored bg. I thought this embossing folder mimicked the quilting of the tote bag & I used a white gel pen to add dots at the intersections. The greeting was stamped w/ the dk navy ink & I drew the little flower over the i. 

Here are the Copics I used:

For my second week as a Guest Designer on the Color Challenge (CC774), the colors are a lt blue, dk blue & white. Very clean, crisp colors! I don’t have the exact colors so I came as close as I could.

I love this tall coneflower die & I thought it would be great in white, so I die cut a circular window behind it, framed it w/ a stitched circle then created a blue bg to put in the window. Using a lt blue, dk blue & white acrylic paint, I dry brushed them across the card stock, then sprinkled on some glitter before some of it had dried. Acrylic paint dries so fast that it only took in some streaks which I think looks great IRL. The greeting was heat embossed in white on the dk blue strip & I added a few clear sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
