Ever since I was a child I have always loved to color. With Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wonder Crayons I can take my coloring one step further and add some depth with shadowing and blending to my images. This little bird is Young Vermillion. He's stamped in Basic Black and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I used my watercolor crayons to color and my blender pen to move the colors around to the placement I was happy with. I chose a swatch of dsp from the Greenhouse Gala collection and I used my Boho Blossoms punch around the edges. Then I punched with tag with the Large Designer Label punch (1 of dsp and 2 of Real Red cs). The ribbon was pinch pleated and stapled. Then I glued it onto the ribbon I had wrapped around my cardstock. The Old Olive cs was placed halfway inside the Lines ef. All products used are Stampin' Up! except the staples.
For my card I used the Vintage Santa stamp from Stampabilities. The sentiment is a die from Peachy Cheap. To add some color to my stamped image I used Distress Oxide inks on a cotton swab.
The stamped background is En Francais from Stampin' Up!
This card was created using a varied array of supplies.
I started with SU! Whisper White cs. Using a dauber I applied TSUKINEKO pigment inks -- Toffee, Imperial Purple, Deep Lagoon and Spanish Moss. Then placing a few different stencils in the bottom right hand corner I applied Imperial Purple and Blue Lagoon. Then with Staz-On Black I stamped Textures Water Droplets (CM-T3) from Designs by Ryn. I added white gel pen to highlight the droplets. I used a stencil from Layers of Color Natural Flourish and daubed on Spanish Moss.
Then on another piece of cs I stamped the little seahorse from Pink Paislee's Nantucket stamp set. With my daubers I rubbed on the TSUKINEKO inks. Then I took my Stickles and added some glitz. Lastly I added some rhinestones and call it done. Hope you like my little trip to the ocean. It's been mighty chilly here in North Central Texas for the past week. I was just envisioning some warmer temps.
Designs by Ryn has a challenge going on right now. So if you…
