Welcome to Day 2
of the incredible joint blog hop/giveaway with
Today I want to share a pocket letter that I created using Hello Sentiments (JC-02110), Doodle Flowers (JC-20107) and Be Joyful Bird. Here's how I made them....
1. Spritz on Fireworks! and a bit of irRESISTible Pico Embellishers.
2. Stencil on text and various designs using Radiant Neon inks and a sponge dauber.
3. While the background is drying time to work on the stamped images... Stamp and tint the mason jars on vellum using Blue Hawaii StazOn ink.
4. Stamp mason jar on each card as a guide where to add flowers/stems as well as placement for the vellum mason jar.
5. Ink up cardstock for a bit of die-cut grass.
6. Stamp and color a variety of flowers and a couple birds. To get a reverse image of the bird I stamped the bird on my craft mat using VersaFine ink then placed a piece of cardstock over the image. Burnish a bit with my hand, lift and ta-da! Revere image ready to go.
The sentiments were all stamped on white cardstock then trimmed and added to each card. I love the lavender sprigs.
Here you can see how nice the reverse image bird turned out. Most of the flowers were stamped on white cardstock, colored, fussy cut then mounted on the ATC's in layers.
It's so much fun coloring with the Memento Dual Tip Markers. You can lay down a darker color on the craft mat, pick it up with a lighter shade then color to create a nice blended effect. It is demonstrated best on the Heart Flower. Tangelo was picked up with Dandelion and Rhubarb Stalk was picked up with Love Letter.
Give Away Time!!
