July is winding down, and it's hotter than, well, you know. I found some reprieve from the heat today at a friend's house, where we stamped and played with our card-making 'toys' all afternoon. I will share what I made on tomorrow's post. I still have to put some finishing touches on my creations.
For today, I decided to try one of my new dies......
The colorful panel was created with Twinkling H20's. Remember those? If you do not know what they are, they are a wonderful watercolor paint, and they have a very shimmery luster to them. You can't tell from the picture, but in real life, this background has such a vibrant shimmer and twinkle. I simply dipped my wet paint brush into the H20's, and swiped them onto the card, using the warmer colors of the color wheel. I adhered the panel to a white card base when it was dry.
I used the Impression-Obsession DIE200-I die to cut the bird from white card stock, then used a circle die to cut it out. I stamped happy birthday on the die with Marvy Matchable inks using the Impression-Obsession Happy Birthday square frame from the WP40 Fun Frames set. I simply inked only one side of the square frame and stamped it.
The JOY stamp is also Impression-Obsession, C5471, and I embossed it with VersaMark ink and white embossing powder.
I adhered the die to the panel, added some Swarovski crystals, and Viola! It was finished!
There are several blogs with really interesting and fun challenges today, so I made this card for the 30 day color challenge at www.thedailymarker.blogspot.com , as well as the following challenges:
Impression-Obsession - Hello Sunshine - Use Warm Colors
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Things With Wings
Love To Scrap Challenge - Anything Goes
Seize The Birthday Challenge - Bold and Bright Birthday
Thanks for visiting today. See you tomorrow, when I will catch up with my 30 day color challenge (I'm a day behind, so I will post two). I have some that I started today at Karen's house, so I will finish those up and post tomorrow. Hope to see you then.
