I am honored to be a guest designer at Scrapping 4 fun .. #42 challenge. Thank you for asking me to join this two week challenge and for having an awesome blog challenge for us to play along.
The theme for these two weeks is TECHNIQUES.. can be distress, inking, folding, coloring.. I hope my card encourages you to play along.
This is the card I made. My technique is: I took water color paper, ranger distress inks in colors, tumble glass, warm lipstick, scattered straw, I smeared it down on my craft sheet. I then spritzed with water and laid my water color paper down. I then dried it and added it real quick to the ink bubbles that were still on the craft sheet, this gives the darker ink marks.. I love the look. I then decided not to use the stamp that I had planned and grabbed my PSX stamp and stamped it over the background water color and I just colored the leaves, the little bit of purple inside the flower and the orange. The rest is the water color look.. I LOVE IT.. I did distress the edges of the water color paper which is mostly because of my old cutting blade on my paper trimmer.. I thought I would go with it and distressed it some more. I then added black behind to make it pop and added it to pear pazaz paper from SU.. The sentiment is from PTI and a few sequins added. I am loving this. It's sure prettier in person..
I hope you head over to Scrapping 4fun and play along..
