For this first one I was inspired by Jacqueline's fabulous card HERE. She used a paintbrush to "paint" the Distress inks on to the stamp. After painting I spritzed the stamp with water before stamping.
The next technique used a paintbrush also.
This time I stamped the Lawn Fawn images from Blissful Botanicals with Memento ink. Then I added Distress ink in Dusty Concord, Mustard Seed and Peeled Paint to an acrylic block and spritzed on a bit of water. I used this to "paint" the images with a messy look. The sentiment is another Lawn Fawn stamp from Hello Friend. The background panel is covered with Dusty Concord and then I stamped Friend Definition just with water using inspiration from Vicky's video HERE.
The last technique is a favorite one for getting a watercolor look that's quick and easy. I used my own card HERE as inspiration.
All the stamps on this card are from Hero Arts. On the smaller panel I stamped Envelope Pattern with Scattered Straw for a bit of texture. Then I inked up the Silhouette Ivy with Crushed Olive and spritzed it with a mini mister before stamping each time. I let this dry then followed with the same technique using Stormy Sky. I inked the edges with more Scattered Straw and stamped the sentiment with Jenni Bowlin No.11 Brown Sugar ink. Layered this to a white panel and tied a bit of jute string then set it aside while I stamped the background panel. I started with a white piece of cardstock and covered it with Stormy Sky using an ink blending tool. Then I inked up the Classic Fabric Design cling with more Stormy Sky and spritzed it before stamping on the prepared background. Once it dried I layered it on a 4.25 x 5.5 top fold card base then added the panel with dimensional foam.
I'm not sure which two will be used for the class, maybe we'll do all 3 techniques, you never know!
~ Isaiah 26:3-4 ~
You will keep in perfect peace
all who trust in You,
all whose thoughts are fixed on You!
Trust in the Lord always,
for the Lord God is the eternal Rock.
My heart has been breaking lately for all of my dear friends and loved ones who have been experiencing tragedy, sickness, loss of jobs, etc. I hope this verse will bring you comfort. It's so easy to lose our focus on the Lord and forget that it's not about this life but the one to come. Our pain and suffering here only serves to make our hearts long for our true home in heaven.
blessings and prayers loved ones,
