Watercolor Congrats Card with Neat and Tangled


Hi All! I've had this stamp set sitting on my desk begging to be watercolored since I got it and I finally sat down and went to work. I really wanted to do no line coloring with it, but it just wasn't working out. I didn't really want an obvious black line, so I went with a soft grey ink to stamp the image and I love the way it turned out. 


I used prima water color pencils, coloring around the area's I wanted the darkest and then using a water brush to bring the color inward on the image.

Country Concert Scrapbook Layout | Photoplay & Hero Arts




Hi Everyone! Today I have a layout I made to feature the newish Hero Arts die "Fancy Boot" for my post over on the a2z scrapbooking blog. I started with a sketch from The Scraproom and choose the gypsy rose collection from Photoplay since I knew I was going somewhere in the Country direction.


I started with the basics, putting the layout together. I choose some fun glitter papers to mat my photos on that I thought went nicely with the kits color scheme. 


I added some fringe to the layout to give it a little more of an old school country music vibe. 
The photos I used were from a country music festival full of cowboy hats and fringed boots. 


I didn't have all the elements I wanted for the layout so I made my alphabet stickers by cutting them out on Cricut (a few laters glued together) and coating them in shimmer and glossy accents. 
And made my boot embellishment with the Hero Arts Fancy Boot die. I love the attention to detail give to this die from the intricate flourishes on the book, to the faux stitching down the middle, and even the little ridge to separate the sole from the shoe!

Distress Oxide Rainbow Blend Card


I can not get over the difference in Oxide and regular distress inks. I never did much ink blending because I had such a hard time getting smooth clean blends. Oxides are like smearing butter. Minimal effort and gorgeous results, I can't wait to try more techniques with them!

For this card I used inspiration from the recent MFT Sketch Challenge for my layout


I used a piece of post it tape to separate the top and bottom of the card panel, per the sketch, and used that area for my sentiment which I heat embossed onto some black card stock. 


My image and sentiment are both from the Beary Special Birthday stamp set. I really wanted to do some no line coloring with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens, but they're so vibrant and I didn't want my image to overpower the background, so I used the grey market to make all the colors a little more cool toned and I really like the way it turned out.

To put it all together I cut the rainbow panel out with my trusted Blueprints 20 DieNamic set and mounted it on a white a2 sized card base, before adding my sentiment and image with some foam squares.
