My first card features the kit and those awesome color layering stencils!
To create this card I first ink blended a panel of white cardstock with color layering stencils and several Hero Arts inks. I used Papaya and Pumpkin for the Buttes, Spicy Mustard and Fawn for the middle section of sand and Pumpkin and Cup O’ Joe for the bottom section of sand. I also used Moss and Forever Green all the plants. When I finished ink-blending the scene I the die cut the landscape out with the matching die and trimmed the panel down to 4″. I then ink-blended the remaining white gaps between the two sections of sand with Sand Core Ink.
Next I ink-blended a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel of white cardstock with Pool Party, Blue Hawaii and Purple Galaxy Reactive Inks to create a sky. I then splattered the sky with a little bit of white Gansai Tambi white watercolor paint. Next, I die cut a circle out of white cardstock using a circle die from the Nesting Circle Infinity Die Set to create a moon. I then ink blended the circle with a little Lemon Drop ink and it and the desert landscape to the sky panel.
I then and adhered the panel onto the front of an A2 top-folding black card base. Lastly I finished the card by stamping and white heat-embossing a sentiment onto black cardstock then trimming the sentiment down to a strip and adhering onto the card front with foam adhesive.
My next card features the gorgeous new Cactus Bold Prints stamp and the Roadside Messages Bundle.
To create this card I first stamped and white heat-embossed an A2 panel of Bristol paper with the Cactus Bold Prints stamp. I then watercolored the panel with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. When the panel had dried I then added a shadow to the images with a gray Tombow Dual Brush Pen. I then adhered the panel to the front of an A2 top-folding white card base.
Next, I stamped and white heat-embossed a sentiment from the Roadside Messages Stamp Set onto Charcoal cardstock. I then added a shadow to the sign and sentiment with the same gray Tombow Dual Brush Pen and then die cut the sentiment out with the matching die.
I then finished the card by adhering the sentiment to the card front with foam adhesive.
