Here's my project for today:
I scribbled a summery assortment of Gelatos over the embossed paper. Next, a little spritz of water was sprayed over the paper. With my finger, I moved the colors around but not too much as I wanted to still see the individual colors. More Gelato color was added here and there where needed.
Once dry, the Stampendous Birthday Assortment Perfectly Clear sentiment was colored with a Faber-Castell Artist Pitt Pen Big May Green and stamped onto the card. TIP: Here's how to color ribbon to perfectly match a card! My ribbon (May Arts) was originally white. I colored it directly with a salmon colored Gelato and then spritzed with water. I used my fingers to blend the color. You can make the color blend as even or uneven as you desire. I added some lace from my stash just to add a bit more femininity. It was affixed with Beacon Fabri-Tac.
The butterfly is from Stampendous Cling Build a Bouquet Stamp Set and was stamped with Archival Black and colored with Faber-Castell Art Grip Aquarelle pencils. The colors were blended out with water and a fine tip paint brush that came with the set of pencils. A little Stampendous Crystal Glitter was added with a Quickie Glue Pen for additional sparkle. Gold thread from my stash was randomly affixed to the bow with Fabri-Tac. The butterfly was affixed with hot glue.
Stampendous Chiffon Fragments were glued on with Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid Glue. Stampendous Pink Dot Sparklers were added to some of the embossed flower centers.
Hope you enjoyed my card today and I'd love you to leave a comment before you go to the next designer's blog!
