Poppy Fields and Window Panes

Hello! This week, the Stampendous team is going to be sharing some great projects featuring florals and foliage. It's easy to make a greeting card for any occasion (or lack thereof) if you have some pretty flowers and perhaps a good sentiment. Today, I didn't use a sentiment, but my card doesn't really need one. 


Supplies:
Stampendous:
R262: Poppy Fields
DWLJ811: Jumbo Tile Stencil
DWDGWP: Glossy White Embossing Paste
FRGL01: Multi Crystal Glitter Mix
DWDPK: Palette Knife
Acrylic Stamp HandleVM001: VersaMark Watermark Ink PadDP111: Detail Black Embossing Powder

Others:
My Colors Cardstock: Banana Pepper, Tropical Splash
Deco Art: Media Fluid Acrylics in Prussian Blue
Artist's Loft: Watercolor Paints, Watercolor Paper
Beacon Adhesives: Zip Dry
Craft Mat



Directions:
1. Stamp image on to watercolor paper using VersaMark Ink, and heat emboss with Detail Black Embossing Powder. Paint with watercolor paints, let dry, and trim. 

2. Make a mat for the image using Banana Pepper cardstock and glue with Zip Dry.

3. Make the card base with Tropical Splash cardstock, and cut to 10" x 6 1/2." 

4. Attach the Jumbo Tile Stencil to the card base with some tape. Spread some Glossy White Embossing Paste on to a craft mat and add 1 drop of Pussian Blue Fluid Acrylic paint and mix, but do not over mix.Keep the color marbleized. Spread the colored paste on to the stencil and card base, but keep it slightly messy. Have some texture and and incomplete coverage. Sprinkle Multi Crystal Glitter Mix into the wet paste and let dry.

5. Attach the image and mat layers to the card base.

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
