Life is the art

This card was made using the Dare 2B Artzy tangled stamp and die set.  Watercolor paper was used on the background.  The sentiment was stamped with Versafine black and clear heat embossed.  The flower has a little hand work in it to make it complete.  Both the flower and butterfly were colored with Copic makers.  The butterfly also was enhanced with Wink of Stella glitter pen.  Hope you enjoy.

I had to try this technique to see how easy it is.  Using a new Spellbinder die and foam adhesive the die was cut.  You remove the paper liner from one side and press the gold foil onto the adhesive and peel away.  This was then added to a card base.  With the pieces left over and red foil the image is completed.  The greeting was heat embossed using a Technique Tuesday greeting.    Hope you enjoy,

Happy Valentine

I am taking an Online Card Class "Clean and Simple 4-Techniques make simple".  This card was inspired from one on day one.  Using a background stamp it was inked with Versamark.  A masking paper was cut the size of the card base and a card cut out.  The masking was put over the card base and Ranger "Red Geranium" embossing powder was added and then heat set.  The masking was removed and white embossing added and heat set.  This was not the first attempt.  The happy was cut, stamped with Versamark and black embossing added and heat set.  This process was repeated twice to give it a dimension.  The Valentine was from an Avery Elle set stamped with Veramark on Black and white embossed.  To give it a little more detail Versamark was stamped over the whole piece and clear embossing added.  This was popped with 3M foam tape.  Fun card to make.  Hope you enjoy.

Water's Edge

Water coloring with distress markers and watercolor paper are a great combination.  The stamp set by Heartfelt Creations "Water's Edge" was stamped with Versafine black ink and water colored with Distress Markers. (Gathered Twigs, Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans and Mustard Seed) on watercolor paper.  A fussy cut water weed and flying duck were added for more dimension.  An oval was cut into Authentique paper, flowers and gems were added.  Hope you enjoy
