First of all...I must warn you....this is a VERY photo-heavy post!
I've been extremely busy making cards, and just never could get around to posting them. I needed quite a few cards for the widow's group meeting this month, as we ended up mailing out almost 30 cards to the home bound members from our church.
So...off we go...and I'll give a brief description for each card, but as always, if you have specific questions, use the contact me button on my blog and I will get back with you as soon as possible.
Water color with Zig clean color brushes on Bristol paper, mounted on a pink background. Added drops of irResistable.
One layer card, stamped with Harvest berries from PTI in shades of blue from Hero Arts. Sentiment is from a very old Flourishes stamp set. Berries are coated with glossy accents and a little wink of stella added to the leaves.
Image cut with Silhouette Cameo, colored with Copics and adhered to card base...with flowers popped off the paper with foam tape. Sentiment is from SSS.
Image from SU on Bristol paper, and colored with Zig Clean Color brushes. Sentiment is from Hero Arts. Added wink of stella on the blooms.
Same image...another color and colored this time with Copics.
Image from SSS and sentiment is from PTI. Stamped on Bristol paper and colored with Zig Clean Color brushes. Popped on a deep purple background.
Image from Power Poppy, brought into Silhouette program and made a cut file to cut the flowers out. Printed the sentiment from Silhouette and cut out the oval on the card panel. Put the flowers inside the oval and inked the card base (background) with Distress Inks.
Image from Uniko. Stamped the flower in black, and added the stem with a Copic multi-liner pen. Sentiment is from Jillybean Soup and is stamped in Versafine black. Added quite a few dots of irResistable drops.
LOVE this (digi) image...from Power Poppy. I also have this as a Flourishes stamp that I bought years ago (same artist), but I'm able to resize the digi to fit (can't do that with a regular stamp). Printed this out on water color paper (Canson), and colored it with Inktense water color pencils and then used a water brush to smooth out the pencil and add shading. Sentiment is part of the digi image download. To be able to print both the image and the sentiment at the same time, use something like Photoshop Elements to change the background on the apples to transparent, then when you put the sentiment to the back layer, the two images do not overlap. When changing the background to a transparent background, you have to save the image as a .png file. I wasn't able to change the background on the sentiment as the lines are so small, but just taking the white background off the apple image allowed me to print both images at the same time. I'm sure to some of you this sounds like a foreign language...LOL! But...to those of you that use Photoshop Elements, you'll know what I'm talking about. Remember...you can learn almost anything watching YouTube videos!
As always, thanks so much for stopping in. I appreciate your visit...and I appreciate each and every comment!
