Good morning! It is so hard for me to believe that June is almost over...which means this is my last post as guest designer over at Paper Smooches! It would be sad, but I had so much fun that I refuse to be sad! I made 3 cards for today, one with each of the new release sets I got for June. The first one used my very favorite set, Crystal Clear:
I stamped the jar, then added the flowers in 3 different colors of MFT ink, stamping twice for each time I inked them to give the appearance of 6 different colors of ink! My sentiment is from the set called Spiritual Sampler. Inked the edges with distress ink, wrapped some jute twine and tied in a bow, matted on some MME paper, and and mounted on an Avery Elle kraft card base.
The second card used the set called Briny Blue - another set I have definitely fallen in love with:
For this card, I had a random idea one night when I was going to bed and had to try it out! I took watercolor paper, masked out a square with washi tape, then waterbrushed over it with Mister Huey's mists in a couple different colors, blending them together. I peeled off the washi tape, let it dry, then stamped the whale, sentiment, and the splashes. Finished off by punching a couple of holes to thread some jute twine through, tying on a button as well.
I was looking at the circle stamp, when all of a sudden it occurred to me that it would be fun to stamp it with overlapping primary colors! I'm so happy with how well it worked! I used 3 different MFT inks to stamp the color circles. Then I stamped the arrow, figure, and sentiment over the top. I used Paper Smooches Ovals 1 Dies to cut the oval shape, sprayed some white Mister Huey's inks on the brown cardstock, added some strips of coordinating MFT cardstock, then mounted the front panel with foam adhesive.
Thanks so much for stopping by today - and for all your kind words this month! I had so much fun playing with my Paper Smooches stamps! And...I can't wait to see the new release for July!!!
