Today's a super special day because there's a special stamp release + mini blog hop happening over at the STAMPlorations blog. Deepti, Cornelia, LauraJane, and I are sharing cards we made using a fabulous new set that Deepti designed: Lotus Love! If you hop along, you could be the lucky winner of the set :o) Comment on the STAMPlorations blog and designers' blogs by Friday, August 7.
I made 2 one layer cards:
For this card, I used Canson watercolor paper as my card base. I created the frame by masking. I stamped the different images using a black Faber-Castell PITT artist brush pen and watercolored them with Sakura Koi watercolors. I kept the card pretty simple by sticking to just two colors and leaving out a sentiment (which I'll stamp later depending on the occasion).
I used watercolor paper again as a card base. First, I stamped the lotus image then masked off two sides before stamping the same image again. I used Sakura Koi watercolors and Inktense pencils to color the lotus. Removed the masking tape on the sides then stamped the grunge newsprint and brick (from Mixed Media Grunge) and the sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to smile!
