Soft Pink, Silver and White

This is such a pretty and delicate card in real life and extremely difficult to photograph.  The pink is lighter than the photo shows but I had to darken the image a bit so the detail of the butterfly would show.

The background was stenciled with light spun sugar distress ink then lightly sprayed with pewter distress spray.  The corner image was embossed with silver embossing powder with a such of shimmer.

The plant was cut from vellum and attached with Paper Glaze. 

The vellum butterfly was heat embossed with white powder, cut out and tool embossed on the body and the wing sections closest to the body, it's attached to the card with foam tape directly under the body.

Singing in the Rain - Mixed Media

Hello! Lisa here with something completely different and new to me... mixed media art! I always admire Mixed Media Art, and I sure do love getting messy, so I decided with this weeks challenge being anything but a card I would go for it...

Supplies Used:

I started by applying ModgePodge to watercolor cardstock. I then tore and adhered various tissue type paper.  I then went over all of that with more ModgePodge.  Next I applied Gesso with my finger and rubbed over the entire panel.  Then it was time for some waterpaiting fun with my peerless transparent watercolors.  I stamped my umbrella with a waterproof ink and let dry.  I hand wrote my sentiment and went back to color in my umbrella.  Finally I added some splats of distress spray stain and some glastique gloss for a raindrop effect.

I absolutely love how this turned out and I am so proud of myself for finally taking the plunge and creating something new.

Happy Crafting!

Snowy Day Card(s)

For my Sweet Stamps project this week, I continued on my mission to find ways to use up some of my (collection of ) Designer Paper.

  On this card, I punched 1" circles and layered them on the background. I added the snowman which is colored with Copics and highlighted with Sakura Jelly Roll pen. The snowflake is Globecraft and Piccolo using Siam Silver Enamel EP.
  I finished off using my DP paper strips by making an 'extra' card creating a Herringbone pattern.

  My daughter likes one, and hubby likes the other.......

We had a little dusting ~ 2 inches of snow here and we are expecting more tomorrow and Friday- to total about 10 inches.  I bet we will be seeing some new snowmen pop up around the neighborhood.
