Just Because ~ Project of the Day #13

Hello Everyone,

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!

Stay Creative,

  5. Wow! This is beautiful! I love the look of those flowers with the scalloped mat.

    I've ordered a number of supplies after watching videos... It can be dangerous!!

  6. Your card is lovely, the daisies are so soft and pretty! I sure know what you mean about the heat in Florida after living in Brevard County for most of my life. It is absolutely unbearable, even hard to breath and it's not even July or August yet when it really gets bad!

  7. Beautiful card and love those flowers. Love the new look of your blog too :-) TFS

  8. Beautiful card! The background looks fabulous and wow, so do the daisies!
    Btw, as far as your question regarding if it's easy to work with and..yes, really easy! You could google videos on texture pastes if your are looking for easy ways and idea's? I love the texture look you get when dried! As far as what else I'd like to try~I would have to say that I would like to play around with painting on some canvas. I think that would be fun~
    Have a great evening!
