Happy Friday!! It is my week to share on the Picket Fence Studios blog and I’m so excited to share my card with you. And then there is tomorrow….the start of Creativation (a huge industry event). The January release has been timed to correspond with the start of all the fun there so make sure you come back tomorrow to see projects with the new products.
So for today, I used one of the first sets I got from Picket Fence called Rose Bouquet. It is gorgeous!! And it is meant for coloring of ALL kinds. I chose Zig Clean Color Markers. I love these pens for the precision tips and nice blending. I find that they work best on a Bristol paper so that is what I stamped the image on using the Black Hybrid Ink which I love for watercoloring. It doesn’t budge!
I layered on pinks and reds for the roses and then moved to olive greens for the leaves. To make the image pop more, I used a gray marker around the edges and blended it out. Once I had most of the coloring done, I went back and added the deepest of each color to get more depth and shadowing. While this takes a bit of time, I love coloring and I enjoy watching the project develop as I add shading. Since I didn’t want to cover up any of the image, I chose vellum for my sentiment. And you know what?? I found that I had this sentiment already stamped and heat embossed sitting right on my desk. It was left over from a design where I changed my mind but it was PERFECT for this card. So nice when that happens! I finished the card with some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and found this pretty pink envelope from Simon Says Stamp to match.
Thanks so much for stopping in today! I hope you have a great weekend and I’ll see you again tomorrow!
Happy Wednesday to you! I hope your week is going well. Here to share the latest from Freshly Made Sketches. The amazingly talented Kim Singdahlsen is our sketch hostess this week and I was super inspired by her challenge. It seemed just right for a baby card I needed to make for a very special family member whose shower is coming up.
I thought the set called “i love you momma” from Picket Fence Studios was perfect for both the sketch and for the shower. And I admit that I’m a total sucker for the namesake sentiment since one of my boys says that to me (more lately with all that has been happening). I stamped both the momma goose and her little one using the new Picket Fence Studios Hybrid Ink. It was my first time using it and I wanted to give it a go with Copic markers. And I love it! Works great and I can’t wait to try it with more mediums.
After I had colored the geese, I cut them out with new prototype dies for the set. More dies will be coming to the shop soon and I’m really excited about that. I added a sentiment from the set and then started with some details. The Double Stitched Square Dies from Gina Marie Designs are wonderful and I love this pretty gingham paper from Lawn Fawn. To keep with the sketch I added some ribbon and a coordinating button from my stash (SU retired). I included most of the colors I used below but the grays are the Toner Grays.
