PE: Noticed at Neat & Tangled!! Yay! Yay! Yay!!
Made a few cards to submit to various challenges.
My first card is using Ellen Hutson stamps and dies –
I started with the background – I repeat stamped the flower from Ellen Hutson Bohemian Garden and heat embossed it gold. I then colored a few random flowers using Weathered Wood distress ink. I then die cut the flower and leaves from Ellen Hutson Wild Garden and colored them using Broken China + Weathered Wood and Pine Needles distress inks. The sentiment is from Altenew Painted Greetings. Submitting this to Essentials by Ellen March Pin Sights Challenge and CAS(E) This Sketch #165–
My second one using Neat & Tangled stamps –
I started by randomly stamping all the images with outlines on watercolor paper and heat embossed them clear. I then watercolored them using distress inks – Seedless Preserves, Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean, Festive Berries. For the sentiment, I die cut another watercolor panel using Sizzix Phrases, and stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set and watercolored it using Peacock Feathers and Mustard Seed.
After adhering the base watercolored piece on the card base at an angle, I added the sentiment panel too, along with some buttons for embellishment. Submitting this to Little Tangles Challenge #66: Ombre –
My third using lots of pattern papers and Reverse Confetti stamps and dies –
I really wanted to start using some pattern papers from my stash. I recently purchased some more – and I couldn’t wait to use these beauties in my cards. Agreed, I am not the best in using them yet, but hoarding them will get me nowhere!! Ok, I really didn’t keep track of which paper pads they are from (:(), but I am just glad I used them! 😉 By the way, the lion and the sentiments are from Reverse Confetti Leaping Lions. I stamped them using Memento Tuxedo Black and colored the lion using Faber Castell Polychromos color pencils. The stars are wood veneers from Studio Calico.
