with sympathy

Hey crafters!! Chera here to share with you another simple card!




This came together pretty quick by stamping one of the flower images from "graces little note" in black around the bottom corner of the card front. After I filled in the area enough with the image I pulled out my Clarity brushes. If you've never used them before I highly highly recommend them for sure!! Getting that soft ombre look has never been so easy!! I then added the sentiment and of course some "moonbeam" sequins because really how could you not!! matted the card front on black for a little more of a pop and the card is complete! I will be making more of these cards with multiple different colours as it was a pretty quick one to produce! Today I show it to you in pink for breast cancer awareness of course!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!!! Have a wonderful weekend...its close enough to say that right??

Chera~

Using Complementary Colours

Hello! It's Donna.
I'm back with yet another card using the Friendship Blessings stamp set. I just can't get enough of this stamp. The clean petals make it a dream to colour. I have to admit to going out and purchasing another yellow Copic marker just so I could get the shading I wanted on this image. (I know, I suffer, right?) Once I'd coloured the image in Copics, I cut it out, leaving a white border around the edge. I then used a colour wheel to work out the exact complementary colour of the yellow. It was a blue, with just a hint of red in it. I mixed this colour using my watercolours. You can see that it took two layers to get the colour exactly right - the first set of lines were slightly too blue. The yellow really pops with the complementary colour underneath, don't you think? I spattered some black paint on the background (which I die cut with a wonky stitched rectangle die) before adding the image, and then popping the sentiment up on foam tape. The sent…

Happy Birthday

Its Karen back with you today.  I'd like to share a softly coloured Happy Birthday card.  This card features the Beautiful Blooms - Hydrangea stamp set.  Its stamped in soft pink ink so the lines blend and fade with the colouring.  The look I was going for was like the image was behind vellum, soft and muted.

I coloured the flowers in pencil and shaded the pinks out with white to make them really soft.  In the centre of each flower is a small amount of green with white gel pen over the top.  This added a bit of interest and gave the flowers a little more life, otherwise they were a little flat.  The outside of the bloom is shaded in very soft grey blended out with white.  The leaves are done the same way with soft green, again blended out with white.

I used a piece of green cardstock on top of pink to bring the card together.  Final step was to stamp the sentiment in black to add a little drama to the card and draw the eye to the flower.  Finished off with a few sequins from the …
