Hello! Welcome back for the second day of sneak peeks for the new release at Lil' Inker Designs - this is a HUGE release, so full of fun stuff!
First up - this card was all about the die cutting!
This was the result of working a little here, and a little there while homeschooling my girls one morning. It looks like it would have taken a long time with all the layers, but it really came together quite quickly! Here are the new release items I used:
I used scrap paper to cut all my flowers, and some Crate Paper pattern paper for the base layer. The lovely border was cut with Border Builders die set. I added a row of machine stitching, some distress ink, foam adhesive between layers, and a few enamel dots to finish it off!
Next up - I had fun with some watercoloring and ink smooshing:
Here is the new set I used for this - can't wait to play with it more! Looks so fun to color with Copics as well as watercolors!
For this one, I used Quilted Swirl Stitched pattern die for the card base, with some May Arts ribbon and hemp twine tied on. I cut a Side Stitched Rectangle from watercolor paper, heat embossed my image and sentiment in white on it, then used some Mister Huey's mist, water, and clear acetate to "smoosh" my color on to the card. Also added a few splatters of more concentrated ink after it dried. As us normal, the watercolor paper curled up a bit - but instead of straightening it out with a heat gun, I decided to enjoy the texture it gave! I just used a bit of foam adhesive to attach it.
And finally - I love nautical things, and this anchor caught my eye right away!
Here is the amazing set that contains it - it is a super big stamp set, and FILLED with fun goodies!
For this one, I heat embossed the anchor and sentiment on a piece of vellum die cut with Dual Stitched Square dies - the anchor in platinum ink. I then colored it in quickly with Copic markers. I used a thin piece of wood veneer behind it that I die cut with Quilted Stitched Pattern Dies - love the REAL wood feel this gives, perfect for a nautical card! I added some chevron pattern paper, and stapled on some jute twine with my Tim Holtz tiny attacher (this also worked well to attach it to the wood veneer layer without adhesive showing behind my vellum!)
