In my last post, I talked about making sets of cards.
Here’s another yellow set — so fast and easy, using up scraps:
(The butterfly punch is Martha Stewart.)
And a different take, using a very old but well-loved hydrangea image from Hero Arts. (These were made a while ago):
A few close-ups:
Just basic stamping above. The hydrangea on the green card was stamping using an old Adirondack Mountain Lake rainbow pad. The white rectangle was edged with gold metallic pen. I love the way it came out.
The image on the pink card was just stamped in black and layered onto other cardstock.
The three hydrangeas were stamped in Tsukineko’s Memento black on a piece of torn white paper, then colored with pencils. A little color was stippled on the background using a Tsukineko Kaleidacolor blue rainbow pad. The pretty glittery cardstock is an old one from Paper Adventures. (Yes, I do hoard my papers for a VERY long time!!)
And last, but not least, some vellum cards:
The vellum on the green patterned card was pre-printed (yes, also from my old stash!) The hydrangea was stamped in the Adirondack rainbow pad (told you I love it!) I then ran the deckled edge against the card stock to get ink on the edges, then I used a water brush to blur and bleed the ink for a softer edge.
On the white-embossed image, I used an old trick of coloring on the back side of the vellum, like so:
(I always loved that technique!)
I have one more set coming up! Thanks for coming by.
