Hey there. Just can't stop playing with the Light and Hope set from Stampendous. I used it for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Starry, Starry Nights. Kristine Werner did an ombre water color technique this week so I wanted to try a spin off of that too.
I was so pleased with my end result. I used a piece of Tim Holtz water color paper taped to my work surface and blended the colors from my Atreza brush pens over the wet panel. When the panel was dry, I splattered with some opaque white ink and die cut the star from Memory Box out. Then stamping the village scene in black Versafine ink. I filled in the building with both a dark navy and black alcohol markers. finally trimming the panel down to 3.75 by 5" and mounting the panel to a top folding, A2 white card base. I was going to add a greeting to the front but decided to just put it inside the card.
Evidently I was in a water color mood this morning. My next card started with another water color panel that I mixed silver, mint and light blue water color paints to make a pearlescent, aqua color. Using a wet on dry technique I moved the color over the right side of my panel in a loose cross form. Then added some splatter from the same color. I used my heat gun to dry the panel and the stamped the Bold Numbers in a dark red ink over the water color. Then stamping the deer from Stamplorations Yuletide Deer set in Versamark ink and heat embossing with Gold Tinsel powder. I embossed the greetings from Kerri Bradfor Studio Bundled Up set with white detail powder in red card stock and mounted to card front with foam tape.
This might be a bit of a stretch but Chirstmas is Christ's birthday so I am entering it in the AAA Cards Birthday Challenge using a number, AAA Cards One image with shimmer and Stamplorations Anything Goes CAS design challenge. The first card will also goin in the Starry, Starry Night challenge. The Timeout Challenge is all about Celebrations too. Thanks for stopping by, Sue.
