:45 Hmmmm, well I had a post scheduled for last night, but in my sleepy stupor I keyed the time in wrong time.

On Splitcoaststampers one of the techniques showcased last week was misting  with markers so I decided to give it a try.  This whole card is misted, part with markers and part was done by misting the paper before stamping.


The card is made with Fabriano Acquarello Watercolor Paper.  The flowers were misted after they were stamped with dye based ink and the sentiment tag was misted with markers.  The background paper was done with the same colors by misting the paper and applying the dye based ink with an aquapainter.  The final layer was scored with a scor-pal around the outside edges and between flowers to give a tiny bit of dimension and the panel criss-crossed with embroidery floss  The sentiment sits on a tag punched out of the same watercolor paper, mounted on sticky dots, embellished with ribbon and dew drops.

Here is a closer view…

The ribbon is actually more of a hot pink than the coral color that appears here and the watercolors appear much softer in real life.  The camera and editing adds just a little bit of harshness.

    gorgeeous, beautiful this is one of my favorite colors. I would like a lesson in this technique. esp. how u did the background. Im saving this baby.

I had a wonderful dinner with my stamping girlfriends tonight and we had an opportunity to welcome back a long distance friend – we love you Linda!!  As I reflect back on the evening I know that life is good!  

I was able to make a quick card tonight.  I’ve been itching to use my Paisley Cuttlebug Embossing Folder.   Not knowing how to color it, I pulled out my white primsacolor pencil and it was quick, fast and easy to color, plus no mess.  The white makes for a very subtle look.  I added a stamped panel and decided to hang a tiny sentiment.

Here is a little bit more detail…

    I love all of you, too! Our dinner and time together was wonderful. Thank you, Becky, for my wonderful note card set. I got it home safely, and it’s sitting where I can see it every day. It’s so pretty that I don’t know if I’ll ever actually open it to see the cards!ReplyCancel

    another beautiful card, I really like this one. its just so different and elegant, suttle, and the list goes on and on. U will have to tell me if that is one stamp or two with the design. the white on the paisley turned out really well, keep em coming u are teaching me so much….

Another quick post to offer – my girls are going out of town for the weekend and I’m grabbing a couple of minutes in between helping them.

I love this dress….this is my first time to use it and I knew that I wanted to try the Kiss Technique since it is a solid stamp.    To start off I stamped the dress and before appying to paper, I stamped on the wet stamp with a swirly background.  Then when I stamped the dress it showed the swirly pattern as well.  My next step was to apply a mask over the dress and sponge on More Mustard, Cameo Coral and Close to Cocoa around the edges of the dress panel.  Then I stamped a script word stamp over top of the masked dress.  Finishing included mounting on two dark mauve panels, adding ribbon and brads and stamping the Dream sentiment.

Have a fabulous day!!
