For my first card, I thought I would channel my inner ‘Laura Bassen’ ...well, I tried! I lost count of how many pieces of water color paper were trashed in the process, but it was still a lot of fun and I did manage to create a card:
I can’t go into the specifics, but I used distress inks to create the front panel, and die cuts from PTI and Lil’ Inkers.
For my next card, I used a soft water color wash background technique taught by Agnieszka Malyszek on Day 2. I found this very relaxing...
I wanted to create a scene for the horse and buggy images, so I tried to mimic grass and the sky behind them with just a hint of yellow from the sun across the top...not sure if I really achieved that, but I tried! I used my water color pencils (Stampin’ Up and Inktense) and the new Tim Holtz water color papers, which seem to hold up well to all the water I added to the colors.
My last card is based on a technique taught by Kristina Werner on Day 2. I used my Hero Arts Loop Flower background stamp, and my new SSS/Mama Elephant stamp and die set called ‘Summer Garden’ for the flower. The sentiment is from the Hero Arts set ‘Enjoy Today’.
So, that’s it for days 1 and 2...now, I would like to create something Day 3....onward and forward, as they say!
I hope everyone is having a great week ~ Thanks so much for stopping by!
