(2016 c13) Lasting Hearts Card Drive



These are the 5 cards I sent in to share in the Lasting Hearts Card Drive on Jennifer McGuire’s blog.

Challenges Entered:

SimonSaysStamp:  Anything Goes (Wed.)

WordArtWednesday:  #220 – Anything Goes


This is my 5th card for Jennifer McGuires Lasting Hearts Card Drive.  For details and to join in click on the hearts or above link.


More Color Burst by Ken Oliver, This  time I used Merlot and Yellow Ochre.   I start by heavily spritzing  watercolor paper with a fine water mist, next I sprinkle the Pigment Powder on the wet paper and watch the magic happen.  If there isn’t enough movement in the colors I spritz again with water.   When totally dry, I Stamped with Hero Arts called Hello Flowers,  then I cut it out with Blossom Cuts Fancy Dies by Hero Arts. For the embossed background I used the the Cuttlebug 5X7 Anna Griffin – Flower Brambles Die.  I used my embossing pad to emboss it without cutting.  For the final touch I used my re-purposed/RECYCLED  shiny gold Gift Bag and backed it with 2 inch wide Score Tape then die cut it with the word Prayer with the Exclusive Prayers combination stamp & die set by Hero Arts & Simon Says Stamp.  This one is actually the negative that was left over from my 4th card and I mounted it on a piece of watercolor paper that used Color Burst Merlot and Ultramarine Blue.
