three different challenges. My owl card, below, is for the CAS-ual Friday challenge (CFC #19). this week's challenge is to make a card that is paper pieced. I choose three owls from the "Owl Together Now" stamp set from Stampin Up! The paper that I used were scraps that were left over from other projects. I made this next card for the Hero Arts challenge. For more details on their challenge, please go here. The stamps are Hero Arts: Thoughtful Messages CL184, Tall Pumpkin G5269, and Traditional Pumpkin F5270. The pumpkins were colored with Prisma color pencils and I lightly blended some antique linen distress ink around the pumpkins using a blending tool.
This last card is an inspiration from Jennifer McGuire. I am currently taking the Inspiration Showcase card class that she is teaching on-line. The technique that I used for this card is called Paint Resist. I inked up the flowing flowers stamp with a pearl paint dabber and then let the paint dry before going onto the next step. After the paint was completely dried, I inked up a blending too with Tatered Rose Distress ink and inked around the outside edges. Next I applied Antique Linen to the center of the image. Then I buffed the image with a damp cloth to remove the resisted ink.
Stamps used: Flowing Flowers CG146 (hero arts). The sentiment comes from C.C. Designs (Amy R stamps) stamp set "Get well Sentiments".
