here with a bonus project for you!
Hello and happy weekend, friends! Lorena here to close this fabulous week full of inspiration with Waffle Flower Crafts and Faber Castell Design Memory Craft. I had a blast pairing their awesome products together! Let me show you what I did:
For my project, I wanted to give a try to the Stamper’s Big Brush Pens
and after experimenting a bit with them, I thought they would work really well for the “smooshing” technique that is all the rage lately. So I scribbled with three different colors (Violet, Cold Gray and Flesh) on a piece of acetate, sprayed it with water and smooshed a piece of cardstock on the acetate… and magic happened! I love, love that kind of marbled look!
Once the cardstock was dry, I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from Doily Square stamp set
. To ground the sentiment, I used the triangles strip from Pattern Play stamp set
. This time, I used the Stamper’s Big Brush Pens in Violet, Cold Gray and White to color straight on the stamp and the result was pretty cool, too!
To make the butterfly, I played around with Gelatos in Guava, Raspberry and Silver. I started by scribbling with the gelatos on a piece of linen cardstock and blended the colors with my finger. Then, I used the colored piece to die cut the Tiny Wings die. I also cut it a few times from vellum and then adhered all the tiny butterflies together. The texture and dimension on this little embellishment are fab!
I finished the card adhering a piece of silver shimmer paper to the card base, and then adhered the focal piece with foam tape.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hoped you enjoyed this last project! Don’t forget to come back on Monday to check the giveaway winners!
