Sending Prayers

Welcome back to the Kennedy Grace Creations Blog!  I'm Jill and I've created an encouragement card for you using the Time to Blossom stamp set and new sequin mixes Cotton Candy and Chantilly Cream.  After all the recent tragedies, I felt the need to create this type of card.

Using Canson XL watercolor paper cut to ~3.5" square, I stamped the main floral image with Ranger Archival Jet Black ink.  I masked the image with some Molotow Art Masking Fluid, letting it dry.  I then water-colored the background stripes using Daniel Smith Mayan Blue Genuine watercolor in varying intensity.  When that was dry, I spattered flecks of about 4 different colors (I might have been a little heavy-handed here!).  Once dry, I removed the masking fluid and water-colored the floral image with several complementary Daniel Smith watercolors.  I also used a little clear Wink Of Stella on the light portions of the leaves and the tips of the flowers.  I then used a SSS Stitched Squares die on this panel.  Finally, I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black ink and glued on the sequins from the KGCs mixes, Cotton Candy and Chantilly Cream.  

I did struggle a bit with how I wanted to use this panel.  I finally decided I liked it positioned as a diamond, foam mounted to some black cardstock.  The black and white background paper is from MFTs.  I off-set the pink colored panel and hand drew the stitched lines with a white gel pen.  I felt it needed some sparkle, so I found some adhesive backed silver glitter paper, cut a strip and placed it along the left edge of the pink panel.  All of this was adhered to a white 5.5" square card-base.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my card.  I've linked the Kennedy Grace Creations products to the store for your convenience.  This post will be included on my personal blog www.jktayloredcards.com and other social media as well.  If you are enjoying these products and others, don't forget to visit the KGC Facebook Fan Page for more inspiration!

Sending prayers to all of you affected by the recent tragedies.  My heart goes out to you.

I have had my Faber-Castell Polochromos pencils for quite a while now, I do believe they were part of my wedding anniversary present last year.. in July... so yeah, they have been around for a while but I've felt too intimidated to try them out. Nuts or what?? Well, for today's card I decided to be brave and just get on with it. And wow. Now I can't believe I waited to long to try them! I decided to use black card stock and gold glitter heat embossing for my card and the colours practically glow!! It's so cool!
Right, I'm skipping ahead a little bit here, let's go back to the beginning. I have used the Kindness Medley stamp set which I stamped with VersaMark on smooth black ca…
