This first card is a 5 1/2" square card. The rose stamp is Bella Rose lg from B Line Designs. I have had this stamp for a while and haven't really used it. I love it, but it is large, too large for a standard sized card. But this card will fit in a large envelope with some extra room on the sides, so it won't cost any extra postage.
I stamped the image with Black Onyx Versafine ink and painted it with my watercolor crayons. I think I'm getting the hang of the shading and what colors to use for the shading and blending.
Once I had it colored, I 'fussy cut' it. Before adhering it to the card with foam tape I wanted to do something with that kraft cardstock. So I used this technique to make the glitter stripes. Once that was done, I drew some dash lines and dots with a white gel pen, put the card together and was done.
I really love how this card turned out.
This second card is an oversized card, measuring 6" x 7" The image is one that I got from Stampin Up! It was a hostess gift and I wanted it so badly, but wasn't willing to have a party, I think it was from a past catalog anyway. I was at my friend Jess' for a party and mentioned it and the demo was kind enough to sell me an extra that she had. I was so thrilled! I love this stamp, sooo pretty!
Again, I used my watercolor crayons and Versafine ink for this image. I wanted to do something a little different so I cut the card front larger and used the same technique for the glitter as I did on the card above. It is a little hard to see the glitter, as it is about the same color as the cardstock. Sorry about that!
Here is a view of the card showing the inside. I used a piece of white cardstock that is smaller than the front, but the same size as the image on the front. I just thought it gave it a little different feel.
I'm really happy with how this one turned out too.
