2017-11 Badge

Now who doesn’t like coloring!! And you get to choose any medium, as long as your have Neat & Tangled products as the main focus!

Here’s what I made –

Christmas Cards - Coloring & 2 for 1

I wanted to do some messy coloring, and I also wanted to use all those little stamps from Beary Merry stamp set. The best way – do some random stamping and start coloring!! 😀

Christmas Cards - Coloring & 2 for 1

I used Versafine black ink for stamping and distress inks for watercoloring. I only used a single watercolor panel, 5″x7″ and then cut it into two to make these two cards. The first piece, I die cut using the Scalloped die, and used it on the grey cardbase. The second, I used directly. The gray striped piece on the second card is a washi tape. The sentiment for both the cards comes from Winter Wishes stamp set.

#573 – Coloring with Color Pencils

Hello! Its been some time.. I’ve been a bit busy with work and such.. and even coloring took such a long time – I’ve been coloring just these two cards for two weeks now!! But finally I had some time, and I was able to finish these –

Just Saying Hello

For this card, I stamped the flowers from Hero Arts Night & Day flowers using Memento Dandelion ink, then colored them using Faber Castell Polychromos color pencils. I also added lots of dots between the flowers, it was looking too plain otherwise.

The sentiment is die cut using Paper Smooches Thanks die, after which I just trimmed it along the sides and adhered it. I then stamped the rest of the sentiment, from Hero Arts All Occasion Messages using Potter’s Clay, trimmed and adhered it. I then mounted the whole thing on kraft card base. For embellishing, I used some pretty yellow and blue flower sequins.

By the way, both this card and the next one have a bit different dimension – the front panel is a bit less than 4″x 5.25″, the base being a bit more than 4″x 5.5″. So, the top panel overhangs just a bit from the base.

Just Saying Hello

I am submitting this card to The Flower Challenge #4: Blue and Yellow and A2Z Scrapbooking January Challenge: Anything Goes

anything-goes

For my next card, I chose kraft card stock and white embossing for my pencil coloring –

Celebrate

I combined stamps from Happy Little Stampers Doodled Flowers and Simon Says Stamp Look for the Miracles – I just knew as soon as I saw them that these two stamps would work wonderfully together! So, I stamped them on a lighter kraft cardstock and then heat embossed them with Wow! white embossing powder, and then colored them.

The sentiment comes from Stamplorations Celebrate die cut, for which I used a darker cardstock. I used another piece of black foam to mount it on the panel, and then mounted the panel on the same dark kraft card base. I added a few dots of Nuvo Crystal Drops Bright Gold around the sentiment for embellishing.

Celebrate

I am submitting this card to Stamplorations: Anything Goes Challenge (not sure of using only the sentiment die cut counts for this challenge; if not, please delete the entry!), Happy Little Stampers: Anything Goes Challenge and SSS Work It Wednesday: Something new with a new product (The SSS Stamp and the sentiment die are new in my stash!)

#515 – Coloring Scattering Leaves

PE: CAS-ual Fridays Favorite!! Yay!

CAS-ual Fridays - Favorite

A2Z Scrapbooking Challenge: Runner Up!!

Hello! I think its becoming more and more common for me to make something, getting stuck without knowing how to finish it and then come back after a few days to finish it.. For this card, in particular, I actually waited two more days just to adhere some rhinestones on it! 😀 But I don’t mind, since the challenges are still open! 😛

You're Amazing

I started with inking the smaller leaves from Hero Arts Scattering Leaves stamp set using blue and green distress inks (I used Shabby Shutters, Moved Lawn, Tumbled Glass and Broken China), then stamping them as is (no misting) on watercolor paper. I used a brush, just the least wet, to spread the color, wherever I hadn’t stamped well. Once done, I colored the background using Antique Linen and Tea Dye inks. I then added a good measure of splatters using Camel Drawing inks.

You're Amazing

I then stamped the sentiment, a mixture of words from Waffle Flower In Every Way and MFT I Knead You stamp sets, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used my MISTI, since I knew I wouldn’t get a good print on a watercolor panel on the first try. Finally, I trimmed he panel and foam mounted it on the card base. I then added the rhinestones for embellishing.

#503 – A Happy Hello

PE: Runner Up at A2ZScrapboooking Challenge!!!

..and a colorful one too! 😉

A Happy Hello

I made this one layer, watercolor card a couple of days ago, using distress inks for watercoloring. I first stamped the little images from Hero Arts Flower Garden using MFT Hybrid black ink, then added some loose watercoloring using Picked Raspberry, Aged Mahogany, Dusty Concord and Fossilzed Amber. I then added a few splatters using Camel black drawing ink. And when it all dried, I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black.

A Happy Hello
