I'M BACK...YAY!!! Let's get right into the cards! This is a trio of cards I've made for the Technique Lovers Challenge at SCS for last week. I embossed a piece of Watercolor Paper with the Stitched background stamp in Black Embossing Powder. I then watercolored using my Aquapainters and Markers in the following colors: Groovy Guava, Only Orange, Yoyo Yellow, Green Galore, Creamy Caramel, Lovely Lilac, Tempting Turquoise, and Brilliant Blue. I challenged myself a bit with this one, too. If you know me well (or even not so well), then you realize that I seldom ever use the Bold Brights. This card features alot of the brights with only ONE Earth Element component....the background color! Shocking...I know!
I used the same Lovely Lilac cardbase for all of these creations, but I changed up the mats for each. I used more Bold Brights when it came to incorporating the papers/cardstock with the image, and here is the list of those shown: Basic Black, Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise, Brilliant Blue, Only Orange, and Bali Breeze Designer Series Paper.
I stamped all of the sentiments with Jet Black Staz-On Ink from the following stamp sets: Absolutely Fabulous, Kind Thoughts, and Always. A variety of punches were also used to make these three very different cards (Scallop Circle, 1-3/8" Circle, 1-1/4" Circle, 1" Circle, 3/4" Circle, 1-3/8 Square, 1-1/4 Square, 3/16" Corner Rounder). To add a little texture and interest some piercing was added with the use of a Paper Piercer and a Mat Pack.
That's it for today......sorry for the long post, but it feels like forever since I've done this! I am not going to include a "supplies" section since I listed everything in the description. Thanks for stopping by to see me today, and I will see you tomorrow with some other cards that I have created these last few days!
