Hope you are doing well. The news here in Central Florida continues to get more depressing, but we are keeping our heads up hoping for some good to come soon.
I have been staying inside during the day since it has been SUPER hot and watching some crafting videos. I found one called Scraps and Stamps and Theresa sent me a link to Justine's Crafts. Once you start watching those addicting videos then you have to watch another and then you have to try the techniques. As I watch each video, my list of supplies I need to purchase continues to grow.
I am really enjoying water coloring, but decided to step it up a notch. I wanted to add heat embossing and coloring together, so I went to Michaels yesterday just to find a large flower stamp since I didn't want to wait to order one on-line. Found one! I really like this one by Stampendous ~ Daisy Thanks.
First, I used MFT Blueprint 20 to cut the scalloped edge from 140 lb Canson watercolor paper. Then I used my VersaMark and white ZING! embossing powder to stamp/heat the daisies. Rather than using watercolor paints, I used my mustard seed, frayed burlap, and salty ocean distress inks on an acrylic block to paint the flowers and the background.
The stamped sentiment is by JustRite ~ Large Fancy Sentiments set. Latte skittles by Carri were adhered with Tombow liquid glue.
The card base is MFT 100 lb heavyweight card stock. I love ALL the colors in the sampler pack! This yellow is Lemon Drop.
This afternoon I plan on trying some blending to create backgrounds. Time to get inky!
