Knock on Wood with Color

Simon Says Wednesday: Knock on Wood
Addicted to Stamps: Photo

Woke up to 6″ of snow and blowing so decided to practice my water color bg. Used the gray with pink water color and splatters with those colors and white. Trimmed down then mounted on pink cs then added hand drawn boarder in black gel pen. This was very lackluster so went with stamping pink flowers with green leaf on tissue paper that I fussy cut and glued to bg piece. Created the wood layer with the yellowish cs dry embossed with wood folder with gray ink smeared on relief side. Swiped the ink pad in the yellowish color to add depth of color. Mounted this on gray layer on white cs base. Then added rolled roses, stamped sentiment, die cut greenery and stamped then fussy cut butterflies. One butterfly was stamped in black on pink cs. I was wanting the other butterfly to be in reverse but my attempts of mirror stamping such a tiny stamp were very bad. But the black ink on clear poly looked good, just seemed that it was going to take days to dry. So I sprayed the inked side with Pixie spray waited a few minutes then fussy cut and used the spray to adhere the butterfly down. Just happened to place it on the pink flower bg so it looks pink too.

It may not be what I started out thinking but ended on a good note. Especially good because the Blueberry Buckle I just made is about out of the oven. I bet you wish you were at my house right now?

  1. I can smell it from here and would enjoy eating it with you. Don’t want the snow though – you can keep that. Art effort is a good one. you may have had a challenge but it all worked in the end.

  2. Yikes! Snow? So glad I live here and not there. I am glad it gave you a chance to play and create beauty, though. Definitely wishing I could smell your Blueberry Buckle! Enjoy.

  3. What could be better than card making and blueberry buckle at Bonnie’s. I wouldn’t even mind the snow! If you share recipes, I’d like it. Your card turned out beautifully. I love the soft colors of your background flowers and all of the layers and extras.
