Hi! Welcome to my studio!
Today I am using a beautiful stamp set just released this month at Sparkle N Sprinkle:
I really love the vintage "feel" of this image. Violets are an old fashioned flower.
To create this card, I used two sets of Nuvo Watercolor Pencils:
Instead of water, I blended with 91% rubbing alcohol, using an aquaflow brush filled with it. I wrapped a piece of washi tape around the brush, to differentiate it from my waterfilled brushes.
First, I heat embossed the image on kraft cardstock, using white embossing powder.
I colored the images with colors from the hair and skin tone set, as they are more muted, and give that vintage look. I used Pinot Noir, Strawberry Milkshake, and Ivory Rose for the Violets. The only color I used from the Brilliantly Vibrant set was green, in two hues: Lemon Grass and Imperial Jade. I also added some Caramel Popcorn to the leaves to tone them down, and the brilliant colors were a bit too bold.
I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Claire Ink in Pinecone. It stamps so clear and clean. I just love it!
The bottom of the "note" is torn and brushed with Nuvo Mousse in Indian Gold.
I also used it at the top.
I layered the note on the background, and added a twine bow. The finishing touch is Nuvo Vintage Drops in Chocolate Chip and Pioneer Green.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
