It's my day to post on the Technique Junkies Design blog. I have 2 cards to share today, using two beautiful new release stamp sets, #S921 Lighthouses and #SS136 Lighthouse Sentiments , from Technique Junkies.
Here's my first card:
Wow! This is such a beautiful release to work with! To create the background for this card, I squeezed a bit of blue, brown, and white acrylic paint onto my Gel Press, and brayered it a bit. I laid the #S909 Flowing Zen stamp onto the Gel Press, pressed gently, and carefully removed the stamp, and replaced it with a piece of white cardstock. I let the cardstock dry, then stamped the sentiment and image with Versafine brown ink. Finished this one off with a nautical die cut and a little brown twine. I love how 'stormy' the background ended up looking.
Moving on to card two:
The focal panel was colored with Copics. Once I finished coloring, I spritzed water onto a bit of Distress Oxide Inks, and laid the card down, moving it here and there, until I got the 'perfect' amount of splatters. I grabbed a scrap for the sentiment, and put it down into the ink prior to stamping the sentiment.
These were both pretty easy to create, and I'm having a lot of fun with the July release!
So glad you stopped by today!
