Untitled-2.jpg
 
 
Brief tutorial
 
  • Using my Misti I stamped the image in jet Black Archival ink on a Bielo white CS. Watercolored the image with Zig brush colors in a  monochromatic look. 
  • Die cut a heart and used it as a stencil. Cover the image by placing the heart and using the CS Damask stencil applied DI in two tones of Hickery smoke DI.
  • Drew a heart shape now with a black watercolor pencil.
  • Watercolored colored the heart with a pop of pink Zig brush color.
  • Now created a ground with tiny pink grass. The sentiment is heat embossed on a tiny black flag strip in Opaque bright white embossing powder and popped it up.

Card 2
 
Now the other one is a layered card in bright colors!

This card is ready for spring and the couple is made for each other and enjoying the sunbeams in this spring garden! I love the cute sentiment on this.
Along with the same stamp set, i have also used Craftyscrappers stencil,
cc-stnl-12.jpg
 
 
Brief Tutorial 
  • I began with this cute couple, stamped the image onto a watercolored CS and watercolored them using Zigs. Fussy cut them and inked the edges using a black pen.
  • On a white CS I die cut a heart from the center. Placed the CS sunburst stencil and applied Mermaid Lagoon DI. 
  • Now placed another stencil from the same stencil set to create my ground using twisted citron and lucky clover DI, blended them properly. Now spritzed this panel with water, picking up some of the excess ink with a paper towel for more interest.
  • I used my heart die as a stencil on a Bielo white card base and blended Blueprint DI. On this blended heart heat embossed the sentiment using Opaque bright white embossing powder.
  • Now die cut a bunch of Hollyhock flowers in white.and watercolored them using Zigs.
  • Layered my sunburst panel on that Blended heart panel carefully using pop dots.
  • Created the spring scene placing all the elements with foam adhesives with dimensions.
