July Rainbow Card Challenge

Howdy!

Today over at the Rainbow Card Challenge Blog. We have a NEW challenge! That is to create a Tantalizing Tangerine monochromatic card.


For today's card I used a Post-It as a mask for the lipstick. I stamped the lipstick onto the Post-It and then I fussy cut it out. I made sure to cut the lipstick color from the holder. That way, I was able to stamp the lipstick as much as I needed. The tangerine color was easy to stamp. But the black had to stamped a few more times. Then I stamped the sentiment and underline. I like how it looks as though the sentiment is written with lipstick.

Broken Stenciled Wings

Howdy!

I hope y'all can play along with us at the Make My Monday challenge blog! The challenge for this period is to make something Using A Stencil!

For today's card I started out by bringing out my stencil. And then two ink pads, Carolina (it's the lighter blue) and Bluebird (the darker blue). I stenciled the feather with the light blue. Then placed another stencil over the top and applied the darker blue ink. This creates a wonderful effect. Next, I die cut the white cardstock and cut it down to a size smaller then the card base. After that I took a scrap of cardstock and stamped the sentiment. Then I cut the sentiment piece. Finally I popped the sentiment up with 3M foam tape.

Find Beauty in Chaos

Howdy!

I hope y'all can play along with us at the Alphabet Challenge blog. This week's challenge is F is for Flora or Fauna. And in the chase of this card F is also for Feathers 😉

For today's card, I started by stamping the sentiment in black. I then stamped the sentiment with watermark ink. And then I put gold embossing powder over the sentiment. As I didn't separate the stamp, I brushed off gold embossing powder from the areas I didn't want it in. Then I placed a paper mask over it. Next I used a variety of inks to stamp the feathers. I then removed the mask. And to complete the card, I splattered gold acrylic paint onto it. (If you wish to see how I splatter paint. Please check out THIS video.)
