This week our team is showcasing the Art Grip Aquarelles Watercolor Pencils, the PITT Pastel Pencils, and our very special guest Nathalie Kalbach is featuring the Gelatos! There may even be guest-starring roles by the PITT Artist Pens for doodling and drawing! I hope you enjoying the colorful inspiration we have for you this week! We’ve been Blogging in Color!
3 Lucky Winners this week will get three sets of the PITT Pastel Pencils (red/yellow, blue/green, neutrals), a jar of Faber-Castell Chalkboard Paint, and $20 Stampendous reward card to choose their favorite images to color! WOW… these winners must have a U.S. mailing address (official rules here!)… BUT WAIT- Aussie Fans – The Stencil Specialist has you covered again this time!! One Australian Fan will win a Stampendous Stamp, a Dreamweaver Stencil (LJ size customer choice), and one Dreamweaver Stencils Regular Embossing Paste. Wow!!
Here's my project for today:
Here's what I used to create my card:
Archival Ink™ in Jet Black from Ranger®
Bo Bunny® A Gift of Love Collection, Sweetie Pie Squeeze
Limeade Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
May Arts Ribbon
3D Foam Mounting Squares by Scrapbook Adhesives®
Zip Dry Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives
Here's what I did to create this card:
Stamp image, color flower with pencils and leaves with Gelatos
Trim closely around image
Scribble some black Gelato on a craft sheet and spritz with water
Using a large sponge dauber, lightly sponge Gelato through Damask Stencil on pink paper
Create card base from green cardstock in an A2 horizontal tent fold
Trim pink stenciled paper down to size as shown
Create a mat for stamped image from green cs and edge with Black Licorice Gelato and smudge
Adhere image to mat
Trim a piece of ribbon and wrap ends around pink paper
Adhere pink paper to green base
Attach foam mounting squares to back of matted image
Adhere image to card base
I really wanted this card to have an elegant look with a slight, very slight, grunge look. Something trés chic with a little bit of "oo la la." I wanted the background to be subtle and I love that it's just peeking out behind the image. This card turned out exactly the way I had it pictured in my head. I always love it when that happens!
Let’s check out today’s inspiration from our designers:
