I made these 2 cards late one night when inspiration hit me just before I was going to bed. I get most of my inspirations at night so I end up sleeping too late and then I’m tired the whole day and lose my mojo… Why can’t I wake up in the mornings and cry “Eureka! I have the perfect idea for a perfect design!” and then I’ll have the whole day to do it.
This first one was with my Zig watercolor brushes. I die cut a heart using a Xcut die, to use as a mask and stamped the sentiment from Penny Black’s Hug set, first with Versamark before adding Wow embossing powder on it, to create a resist when I started colouring with my Zig clean color real brushes.
I love how the Zigs create such luminous colours!
I’m entering this card in the following challenges:
AAA Card Challenge– Resist technique
Simply Irresistible Challenge – Just make a card with the Resist technique to enter this challenge!
My Creative scoop – June color inspiration
Stempelgarten challenge – CAS
Happy Little Stampers Watercolour challenge – Anything Goes with the masking option
My next card is completely different as you can see, but it didn’t take very long for me to make it either and I really enjoyed colouring with my Prisma color pencils. The colour doesn’t get absorbed by dark coloured paper and really stands out against the black card don’t you think?
I used Penny Black Delicate Florals stamps for this which I stamped in Versamark and then added silver Wow embossing powder before heating it with my heat gun. I then went in with my color pencils and just coloured the edges of the flowers.
To create some extra sparkle, I went over all the flowers with my Spectrum Noir clear sparkle brush and I love how they shine! I stamped the sentiment from Stamplorations also with Versamark and then heat embossed using Wow embossing powder.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed looking at my cards. Leave me a comment to let me know what you think!
