Welcome to our third June Artisan Wednesday Wow hop! We are continuing with ideas with products from the new catalog for you this month and are so excited to share! If you just came over from the amazing Jeanna, welcome to the next stop. If you are starting here, just continue around using the next buttons until you get back to me.
For today’s card I really wanted to show off this beautiful new color, Lost Lagoon. If you have been with me for a while, you know that I loved, seriously loved, the retired color Baja Breeze. To me, Lost Lagoon is an updated and richer version of that color. So yeah, I like it a lot. It is particularly pretty with yellows. So that was where I started. A saw a cool tutorial over at Splitcoaststampers for no-line piercing a while ago. It was stored in my “to-do” list until I got this great Forever Florals stamp. It is fantastic for the technique! All you have to do is stamp the image on Watercolor Paper and, using a straight pin (the Piercing Tool makes bigger holes) you follow the lines. It is best to have your Stampin’ Pierce Mat underneath to protect your surface. You can follow all the lines or just pick some. Once I was happy, I just flipped the image over and colored using my Aquapainter with Lost Lagoon and Hello Honey inks.
Here is a close-up to help you see it better.
I stamped the sentiment from the same set after spritzing the inked words with a little water. The embossed panel was created by first cutting out an oval with the Ovals Framelits, then embossing with the Decorative Dots TIEF. I distressed a little around the edges with my Distressing Tool. Now this bow is made possible by the GORGEOUS Stitched Satin Ribbon (this is Hello Honey). It ties so wonderfully!!
Okay, off to go visit the awesome Mercedes Weber. I can’t wait for you to see what she has created! Make sure you hop around the whole loop to take a look at beautiful creations by the whole team…you’ll be happy you did!
