(2018 c61) Mother’s Day Columbine

(2018 c61) Mother's Day Columbine

I die cut the Die-Namics Pierced Oval by My Favorite Things from white cardstock and stamped the columbine flower from Stately Flowers 1 by Melanie Muenchinger found at GinaK Designs with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Black WOW Embossing PowderI then painted with Artist’s Loft Fundamentals Pearlescent Watercolor Pan Set From Michaels.  Then sponged Blueprint Sketch  Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger.  The background was made by spritzing my craft mat with H2O and then sprinkled Ken Oliver Color Burst (Watercolor Pigment Powder) then I smooshed the watercolor paper into the color and adding more until I was happy. I kind of like the top portion where I swirled the paper as I was smooshing.

For the sentiment I partially stamped the MOTHER’S DAY (leaving off Happy) with  Mom + Me  by Lawn Fawn on vellum with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Black WOW Embossing Powder.  For the black sentiment I snipped the Happy & to you from the diecut from Happy Birthday Boarder by Lawn Fawn.  For the final  touch I applied 3 dots of Periwinkle Liquid Pearls by Ranger.

Once again I apologize for the poor quality of my photograph.  My new battery charger for my SLR Olympus should get here this week and I will take a new picture and replace this once my good camera is charged. My little digital camera is ok for landscapes, but not so great for cards.

Like the previous post I followed the tutorial by Julie at Club Scrap called Dyed Tissue Paper Terchnique.

Tie Die Tissue club scrapFor the tissue paper I used Ancient Page reinkers:  Lemon Peel, Tourquois & Jade.  As you can see on the picture to the right the biggest piece has been adhered to white cardstock with PVA Adhesive Glue by Tran.  Next I stamped the center flower with Club Scrap (unmounted rubber stamp) called 2006 Interior Design with  Ancient Page Ink  Saffron, I didn’t like that, so I stamped a couple more times with  Coral Red.    Next I stamped the surrounding 4 flowers with Coral Red and I added Yellow 050  Zig Wink of Stella  to add a little sparkle.  The sentiment from Club Scrap (unmounted rubber stamp) called October 2007 Great Outdoors  (It appears that this one is no longer available) was stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Black WOW Embossing Powder.

(2018 c55) Grateful.jpg

First off I apologize for the photo.  I lost the charger for my nice Olympus SLR camera and had to resort to my small digital camera, which doesn’t do so well with true colors…there are only pink & yellow on the card, but the pink area shows up somewhat lavender, sorry.

Watercolor paper was painted with Lemonade and Pickled Raspberrry Distress Inks by Ranger. The Grateful sentiment was stamped with CS213 Grateful from My Favorite ThingsThe smaller sentiment is from LJD Geometric Greenery from My Favorite Things. They were stamped with  Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Black EP.

(2018 c54) Purple Rose, Jewel Tones

For the rose I used Build A Flower: Rose by Altenew Stamps and dies. Colors(2018 c54) Purple Rose, Jewel Tones zoom used Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger : Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet, Seedless preserves, Twisted Citron, Peeled Paint & Bundled Sage. Since the Oxide inks are a little dull to me, I added  Zig Wink of Stella  to brighten and sparkle them a bit (as you can see on the left).  I also added it to the black frame and lavender inserts cut with My Favorite Things Dienamics Linked Chain Oval Frames die.  The center part was embossed with D’vine Swirls by Cuttlebug and then sanded to reveal the white core of the cardstock.

(2018 c52) E Hutson Plaid Hydrangea 1

It may look a little crazy to see a plaid Hydrangea, but I had fun making this Watercolor background with Martha Stewart Patterning Brush Set #32249 using Artist’s Loft Fundamentals Pearlescent Watercolor Pan Set From Michaels.  Next I stamped the Mondo Hydrangea by Essentials by Ellen Hutson(2018 c52) E Hutson Plaid Hydrangea on Vellum with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Gold WOW Embossing Powder then I fussy cut the top portion of the flower and folded the side and bottom corners around the plaid base to secure it.   I added Yellow Stickles by Ranger to the centers of the flowers.  The sentiment called Brushstroke Wonderful by Julie EEDIEJ-044-16 from Ellen Hutson must have been discontinued (I can no longer find it on their site).
