Here is a little card I created with Let's Talk by Debbie Corbari! It is super simple, using patterned paper and the colors from the paper. I used a fun angle on the pattern paper layer. Bubble words were stamped and gently trimmed, then adhered with foam dots!
I am also showing you some cards with my Fleur de lis stamp set. I can honestly say that this set has become one of my favorites. I took a little stamping break, cleaned off my desk and found some supplies which I had not used in a while (watercolor brush). I started playing with the set and created some cards which I love. Sometimes I am my harshest critic. I can honestly say I made these cards and I was GRINNING! It has been a LONG time since I have been happy with a
stack of cards.
This first flour de lis card was stamped with a pice of ivory base, along with a piece of die cut Gina K. Ivory. This is the key, I stamped the flour de list image with black ink and used clear embossing powder on it immediately, heat set it and it gave a raised embossed look. Then, I used ink pads and a watercolor brush to blend the background. I washed the card with blues and greens (ocean mist, artichoke, turquoise sea) simply picking up the color on the brush. I added some extra deep color inside the our de lis image. I dried it with my heat gun and then added the sentiment and some gems.
I created the next card the same way, adding embossing powder to the black stamped image to make it slightly raised. I used the watercolor brush to color in the images.
So dig into your supplies and pull out your watercolor brush! That is all you need! See you Friday!
Now please continue to enjoy the hop and have a fabulous day!
