Purple Winter Wishes

Hello again.  I am quickly popping in with a second post today to share a non-traditional colour CAS Christmas card.

 

 

The penguin image was stamped with Memento black ink on X-Press It paper, coloured with Copics and die cut out with the coordinating die (my alignment was off, so I had to do some fussy cutting to try to even it out). The sentiment was white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock.

 

 

The background was created by ink smooshing Wilted Violet and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide Inks on watercolor paper, then die cutting with a circle die.

 

 

A Zig Zag Stitched panel was die cut from watercolor paper and adhered to a white top folding card base.  All the pieces were assembled and mounted to it.  Clear shimmer and some sequins finished off the card.

And that’s it for today.  Thank you for stopping by.  Have a great day or night wherever you are.

Guest Designer for Inkspirational

Hi everyone.  I am here today to share another spring themed card as the guest designer for Inkspirational challenge #132 Spring.

My card was based on rainbows and the phrase April showers.

The sky background was created with a diecut cloud border stencil, a mini blending tool and Tumbled Glass distress ink on a white Stitched Rectangle.

The NBUS umbrellas were die cut from scraps of smooth Bristol paper.  The solid umbrellas were coloured with various rainbow colour distress Oxide inks with a mini blending tool.  They were then spritz with water, and after a few seconds, blotted with a paper towel.  Once completely air dried, the umbrella outlines were adhered on top.  For some sparkle, clear shimmer was added to each section. Had I thought of it beforehand, I would have added the shimmer to the whole solid umbrella before attaching the outline.

The NBUS sentiment was stamped with Archival black ink before the panel was mounted to a white top folding card base to be assembled.
