Hey peeps. I’m super excited to be sharing in the Simon Says Stamp Born to Sparkle release. I had a chance to play with the Magnolia Background stamp and I absolutely love it. We happen to have a magnolia tree in our front lawn and I love the fragrance from it. So I have two cards for you today.
My first card I pulled out my watercolors and got to work. Watercoloring for me is very therapeutic and since I’m limited to my crafting time it gave me a chance to relax and play. For added depth and shading I used my Faber Castell polychromo pencils. The navy background was done with color pencils and watercolor. I didn’t want a sentiment to cover up the image so I in-lay diecut the Happy Everything die from CZ Designs. A few pretty gems and this card was complete.
My next card I used my polychromo pencils. Both of my card were done with the no-line coloring technique. To add a pop of color I used the brightest pink Copic maker I had in my stash to fill in some the the blank white areas between the leaves and flowers. I thought it would be fun to add some white dots in that hot pink area and a few flat sequins.
Choosing to frame out this image as if it was a photo, I die cut a textured frame to place around the image. The sentiment is from the CZ Designs hello in hot pink. I stacked a few of the hellos for added depth. Next I used a shimmer pen for some sparkle and glossy accents. You really can’t tell in the photo but the shimmer is there I promise. LOL
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you enjoy the Simon Says Stamp Born To Sparkle Release. Hope to see you back here soon.
