FMS344 by Jen Timko | Floral Phrases Stamp Set by Stampin' UpHappy 4th of July!!!  For all of you in the US, I hope you have a happy and safe celebration.  We are off to a baseball game and to see fireworks in downtown DC.  Should be a very classic celebration for us!  But it is also Wednesday and we have a new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  The lovely Cécile Ribon is our hostess this week and the sketch is perfect for her clean but always intricate style.

My card uses the Floral Phrases stamp set from Stampin’ Up.  A set that I have loved from the moment I first saw it!  I love these flowers on the angle for the sketch!!  I stamped onto Thick Whisper White with some Lawn Fawn ink in Mermaid.  The sentiment is from the same set and I simply layered banners.  I thought it needed a little a little something extra so I added some pearls.  It was just what the card needed for me!

Some fun news from FMS!  Our July Guest Designer is revealed today and it is my wonderful friend Caly Person.  If you don’t know her, you should!  Go check out her card for today then hop over to see her blog.  Short and sweet today.  Must get to the ball park early, after all!  I hope you have a wonderful day.

Fancy Friday – Pencils and Ink

Fancy Friday – Pencils and Ink published on 12 Comments on Fancy Friday – Pencils and Ink

Welcome to this month’s Fancy Friday Blog Hop!  Our team is a group of stampers who love to make beautiful things.  Sometimes they are clean, sometimes they are layered but the one thing I can say for sure is that our projects will be fancy!  If you hopped over from the amazing Allison, welcome to the next stop.  For January, our theme is “Just Because”.  Kind of an anything goes concept which is always fun!

Watercolor Pencils and Ink - Jen Timko | Stampin' Up Watercolor Pencil Blending on Flourishing Phrases and Floral Phrases stamp setsI chose to show you a new technique that you can try with your Watercolor Pencils from Stampin’ Up.  The fun of this is the color coordination that Stampin’ Up is known for and now you can use it to your advantage with this new coloring medium.  The first card I created for today used complementary blues, Soft Sky and Bermuda Bay, and greens, Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive.  I stamped the flower from Flourishing Phrases onto watercolor paper and then added shading using the pencil in Bermuda Bay.  The effect is so pretty and changes the whole feel of the image.
Flourishing in Blue by Jen Timko | Watercolor Pencils and Ink on Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set by Stampin' UpSo I decided to try it with more colors.  I decided to used Daffodil Delight ink and the Pumpkin Pie pencil together for my second project but I show my “worksheet” at the end of the video as I played with options.  While the flower from Floral Phrases already has a watercolor look, this ups the game a bit as you add shading.

Just a quick note on the pencils.  Apparently many of you already own these lovelies because they are currently unavailable.  No fear though.  They should be back in stock by Feb. 13th if you don’t already have them.

Now for the rest of the hop!  I’m telling you….this team is the most talented group.  You will be happy you hopped!  Off to see the super talented Krista Frattin.  As always, she has created something fabulous!
