Simply Blessed

My bg for the focal image is white cs with black texture paste through a stencil after I had sprayed shimmer sprays in yellow, orange and purple. So sad the shimmer does not show up. This was mounted on white mat layer then black mat with blessed stamped and heat set in white. Orange cs was dry embossed with sun ef and then rubbed embossing pad over rays for contrast. All was mounted on white cs base. The Simply sentiment was created and cut with Silhouette. I finally figured out how to keep my dots for the i’s with the pre-cut sentiments. I attach them for the design but when I am ready to use them, I fussy cut the dot then attach separately. Problem solved. Email me if you want the svg of this sentiment?

Sun Drenched Flowers

This bg piece is what happened when I placed a wet with black modeling paste stencil that was spritzed with water on white text vellum. Once dry I placed the stencil back down and sprayed shimmer sprays in yellow, orange and plum. Added details with markers to centers of flowers and black and white gel pens to create doodling around leaves. It still was missing something, I placed the stencil back down and sponged in green ink from ink pad. Rubbed edges along plum ink pad then mounted on white cs base. Sentiments are Silhouette cut in white cs and glued in place.

Colorful Horns

I got this fun stamp from Pink Ink called Buffalo Jill at DelBellos sale. Colored first with water colors in shimmer then added shading with markers or white gel pen. Fern leaves are sponged with stencil and green ink. When I water colored on this white text vellum it warped quite a bit so I used an embossing folder to help smooth it out plus add texture. Ended up with a wrinkle across her nose but used it anyway. Sentiment was stamped in black ink then fussy cut and attached. All was mounted on black cs mat layer then white cs base.

Embossed Butterfly

I had this last piece of bg pp that needed used instead of filed away. The butterfly was a detailed Silhouette cut file that I removed the wing cutouts and created the edge pop ups, cut out of copy paper then dry embossed. Dabbed on embossing pad then heat set gold. Stamped sentiment in black ink, mounted body only of butterfly then attached to mat layer then on to white cs base. Used marker to color antennas.

Easel with a twist

OK so it is not actual a twist but more of a swing addition. Found the inspiration while surfing YouTube here. The base paper is a layering weight of 12×12 pp. Once trimmed and swing portion cut out, I added the swing square in the same pp. Flowers were cut in white card stock from layering flowers found in my Silhouette Store. Added colors with finger brush dauber and ink pads before removing pieces from cutting base. Once layers were put together added the flowers to my step card. Sentiment was also cut on Silhouette then attached. I seem to be really stuck on pink with orange right now. This project has been in various stages of completion for many days and just finished it while avoiding the 97° heat in the air-conditioned house.
