I've had one busy weekend working on some DT projects that are due - as well as running a card stamping workshop at my church - and then raking up the back yard (at least it was a gorgeous day in the 50's and sunny!) but after watching "Call the Midwife" on TV while I ate supper - I went into my craft room for some fun stamping!
First I have a card that friend at work asked me to make for her mother's friend who is celebrating her 80th b'day this month - she's a fashion Diva - particularly loving hats.
I stamped this hat on watercolor paper in red - then I used Ranger Distress Markers and my water brush pen to color it - I cut out out and layered it over this die cut and stamped dress form from PTI. I layered it all on a water color panel I die cut with my favorite Stitched Mat rectangle die from Lil' Inker Designs.
My card design was inspired by this week's Case Study - which I flipped left to right.
I made my second card to send to a friend from church who landed in the hospital last week with pneumonia in both of her lungs. She's been there for 4 days now so I'm sending her cards to let her know my thoughts and prayers are with her.
I used Fine Feather Stamps Waltzingmouse - that I stamped on a feather die cut out of vellum. I layered the feather over the watercolored splats using 2 thick dots so the feather is higher in the center and bends down towards each end.
I made the splats with a Ranger Distress Marker that I then brushed around with my water brush pen and also used the pen to flick the dots while the pen had ink in the brush.
My design for this card was inspired by this weeks Cas(e) this sketch
I hope you can stop by again on Tuesday - I'll be posting a wonderful new box template from Creations by AR!
