Today I’m making a card for the Lawnscaping Challenge, which is to use Sentiments. I wanted to use the Faber-Castell Metallic pencils on black card stock, so that the metallic will show up better. I went ahead and stamped one of the sentiments from the Lawn Fawn’s Chitchat stamp set and embossed it using white embossing powder. I then colored in the speech bubble randomly using 4 of the metallic pencils. I used Gold, Silver, Pink, and Blue. I think the metallic shows up really nicely on Black card stock. These pencils are not water-soluble like the Derwent metallic pencils. I believe these are wax based. These are student grade pencils and I think they don’t have as much metallic as the Derwent but it’s ok for techniques like this. No blending but just coloring in the image. I hope you enjoyed this card and please subscribe and follow for more inspiration and ideas. Thanks again 🙂
Today I’m sharing this journal page I made using one of the Prima stamp set that I had. I’ve been wanting to use her for a while. I also used Brusho crystal watercolor powder to color her hair. I wanted the bloom it creates when, it’s sprayed wit water. I kind of over did it I think, so at the end, it looks a little blurry to me. I also wanted to use the vintage bags that Tupelo Designs LLC, packages their order in. It’s a gorgeous vintage bag, which I thought it was perfect in the background. I’ve added some Double Scoop Gelatos and blended it with my finger. I also used some copper and gold sprays I had in my stash. You can view the video for the complete process of this page. It didn’t quite turn out the way I wanted it to, but I think it’s okay. After all, I’m still learning and I had a lot of fun making this page. I thank you guys so much for stopping by and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas. Thanks again. I tried my best to put the supply list below but some supplies are missing…sorry.
Today I’m making a Quick and easy vellum shaker card using Paper Temptess Card stock/Vellum and Gerda Steiner Designs Rubber stamp called Monster Kid. I’ll be using several different products today, and I’ll explain a little about these products as I go. First off, I’m using Gerda’s Rubber stamp today, and she has Digital stamps, Clear stamps and Rubber stamps available in her store. I use her Digital and Clear stamps all the time, but I think this is the first time I’m sharing her Rubber stamps. Just to explain a little about her rubber stamps, her rubber stamps come in Rubber only form. Which means, it doesn’t have the cling cushion that you normally use to stick the stamp on to your acrylic block. You have the option to mount them onto a cling foam mount if you choose to do so. I like to use my bare rubber stamps with the Aileen’s tack it over and over glue, which I explain in the video. Her rubber stamps are excellent quality and it’s very thick and deeply etched, which will give you a really great impression. I decide to use watercolor pencils to color in this image and I’m using the Faber Castell’s Art grip watercolor pencils. These watercolor pencils are highly pigmented, great quality pencils which blend really easily, as you can see in the video. They’re available in color family sets as well as different quantity sets. I have a few of the color family sets, and I didn’t have all the color pallet available to me, so I implemented the Peerless watercolor as well. These are fantastic pencils, and I love them dearly.
I also made a simple shaker portion, using some of Paper Temptress’s yummy colored vellum. I love making this simple shaker, which is simple to make yet very fun. Her vellum is perfect for things like this, because they are very thick and high quality. I love these purple and orange card stocks, which also has some texture to them, which will add some more interest to this card. Her card stocks are very thick and sturdy, making them very easy to work with. I hope you like this card and please check out the video for the step by step tutorial.
