Good Morning Everyone ~ today I used Beautiful Day from Stampin’ Up for my creation.
Well I met with the real estate agent last night. We are putting the house on the market this weekend. I still have some things to finish up but mainly it is moving my packed bins upstairs to the closet. I moved a lot yesterday and had to quit as I was exhausted. I am so going to enjoy my vacation next week. Between now and the time I leave I have to get my cards created and my videos recorded and uploaded. I will be busy this weekend! I also have to get my Facebook card designed and posted. So much to do and so little time!
After I met with the real estate agent I had to get my card made. I didn’t have a lot of time so I went for a simple layout. I had the bright idea to emboss the image and then use the marker and blender pen and ink in the lid to color it in. I wasn’t thrilled with how it turned out so I decided to use my aqua painter and blend the ink a little more. It did blend it a little more but still not sure about it. You will have to leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Here is the procedure I used. I stamped and embossed the image. Then using my Sweet Sugarplum marker I colored the petal from the center to about the middle of the petal. Then I took my blender pen and using the ink in the lid I colored the petal from the outside edge to the center of the petal making sure to blend the two. After I had colored all the petals, I was not happy with the look so I grabbed my aqua painter and a little container of water and used the water to color all the leaves. I used the brush and water to blend the ink a little more. While it looks better it is not what I think it should look like. I think it would have been better to use watercolor paper but that is hard to stamp on and emboss. After I had my image colored I set it aside to dry. I embossed a panel using the sequin embossing folder. This folder was added to the Sweet Sugarplum card base using Tear & Tape. The colored flower was added to a Wild Wasabi panel a little larger than the image panel. This panel was added to the card base using dimensionals. To finish off my Beautiful Day from Stampin’ Up creation I used some of the retired Sweet Sugarplum glimmer ribbon and tied a bow. Here is my completed creation.
