Hello and welcome to the take 3 of my role as Winnie & Walter Leading Lady for August.
This time, I am focusing making my cards monochrome while using a single stamp set, and the same layout. Even the arrangement of flowers is the same. I’ve made three cards using these points as the leads –
I used Winnie and Walter In Bloom: Addie’s Garden for the flower arrangement, die-cut the frame using Essentials: Lana’s Cutaways for all three cards. Lets go through the cards one by one..
For my first card, I went with greys and silver. For the background, I used a light grey cardbase, and stamped the images just around the edges using masks and a dark grey ink.
For the panel in focus, I first heat embossed the images in clear embossing powder and then watercolored it using Gansai Tambi silver paint. A little paint was enough to get lots of shimmer and coverage, and the whole thing finished very quickly. Once it dried, I covered the image and added the splatters around the image using the same paint.
See that beautiful shimmer? So beautiful! I then foam mounted the panel and stamped the sentiment, from Sketchy thoughts in black ink.
For my second card, I went with color spash –
For this card, I stamped each of the image separately, then fuzzy cut them. For the panel, I watercolored it a bright shade of green, then, once dry, die cut it, and finally I adhered the flower and leaf pieces on it. To give a liitttle bit of dimension, I curved the flowers’ and leaves’ edges.
For the card base, I picked a line stamp from the Scenery: Stripes stamp, and lying the stamp in a curvy fashion on my acrylic block, stamped it using black ink. After stamping this several times, I then changed to other curves and stamped it, covering the whole image thus. The sentiment comes from The Big, the Bold and You stamp set.
For my final and most favorite card, I made a sketch of sorts –
I used a paper which is meant for sketches, but any paper will do for this method. I first stamped my arrangement using a light grey ink, then used a normal pencil to sketch. I don’t claim to be an expert in sketching, but trust me, these flowers are just perfect – super easy to make a sketch out of!
For the background, I used the Scenery: Madison stencil to emboss, then added some twine. I then mounted the sketched panel. The sentiment comes from The Big, The Bold and The Happy stamp set, which I stamped in a light grey ink, then wrote over it using the pencil (to make it look sketchy, of course! 😉 ) and then die cut using the tag die from Essentials: Lana’s Cutaways. I then adhered this to the card too.
Hope you liked these variations of the same design in these three cards! Leave a comment here for a chance to win the $30 gift certificate to the Winnie & Walter store. Winner will be announced at the end of this month.
Thank you for stopping by! 🙂
