I'm launching a Justrite One Day Special on Hochanda this evening at 8pm with shows tomorrow too at 9am, 12noon, 4pm and 7pm. There are some lovely clear stamp sets and die sets to tempt you!
Here's today's card -
Justrite Peonies Clear Stamp Set, Justrite Peonies & Mason Jar Dies and Justrite Stitched A2 Banners & Rectangles Dies.
I stamped one of the large peonies from the stamp set 4 times and the other large peony twice onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I cut 3 full flowers with leaves & stems (2 of one image and 1 of the other). I cut just the flowers out on the remaining stamped images. The easiest way to do this is to use a template - the waste from a die cut. I am hoping to demo this - so should make more sense then! I usually cut them out before colouring just in case I mess up the cutting.
I coloured the leaves in first, using Crushed Olive Distress Marker pulling the colour out with a Water Brush. I coloured the flowers using Shaded Lilac, Dusty Concord and Wilted Violet Distress Markers, again pulling the colour our with my Water Brush. I added a little Fossilized Amber Distress Marker to the centres of the flowers.
Tumbled Glass and Brushed Corduroy Distress Markers pulling the colour out again.
I stamped the 'Thankful for' and the 'Flowers' from the same stamp set. I cut them out using the label die from the die set and inked around the edges with Clear Day Colour Cloud using a Smoothie.
Circuit Board Mask. I inked through the die with Phill Martin Chic Viola Colour Cloud using a Smoothie.
3D Foam, some 5mm Black Pearls and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.
