It's time for a Whisker Graphics project here on my blog today. I do look forward to creating an ABC [anything but a card] project using WG products.
I found this frame garage sailing [yes, I spelled it my way ;)] for like 10¢. I knew I would use it some how, someday for a project. Today is the day.
I downloaded, and cut a 2016 calendar. I went through important dates and stamped images over the specific date I wanted highlighted. [See my example with the heart] St Pat's day I did a clover, April a flower, May my birthday etc...
And then I made cut images that can be changed out for the coming months. For this month of February I used the Whisker Graphics Solid Pink Bamboo Twine.
It's STAMPlorations Inspiration today. I went with a very easy, and I think, pretty card.
Starting with a panel of water color paper, I wetted it down with a paintbrush, and touched my paint filled brush to the panel. I let the colors spread, and then re-spritzed with water. Once I dried it with my heat gun, I embossed my sentiment [Fond Expressions] and added a punched heart for contrast. A basic water colored card, that I really like :)
I just loved the look of the inspiration hearts. I wanted to try my sponge blending and this was the perfect opportunity. I love distress inks; #1 they blend amazing, and #2 they splot with water wonderfully.
I purchased a bunch of Hero Arts Wood Flower Stamps awhile back. While I really don't care for wooden based stamps [anymore], these worked perfectly for inking up the stamps. spritzing them with water, and stamping. I love this effect, and this is the closest I will get to water coloring. :)
How fun! I was asked to be the Crazy 4 Challenges Guest Designer this month! You'll be seeing 4 cards from me this month to play in the challenges. This week is all about kites - either the shape, or on your card.
I went to my stash of Gina K Designs stamps and used Vintage Chic.
