Isn’t it cute?!
For my first card I combined it with Gina K’s Painted Autumn stamp set! I stamped the flowers with Worn Lipstick distress oxide ink on kraft cardstock and then added shading with colored pencils and a white gel pen. I stamped the foliage with Peeled Paint distress oxide ink and then embellished it with colored pencils and my gel pen. Finally I stamped the coffee mugs, steam, and sentiment with versamark and heat-embossed them with white embossing powder.
My next card is a little bolder and features my attempts at no-line coloring with colored pencils! 😉
Man that technique continues to elude me! But I’ll keep working on it! 🙂 I stamped the coffee pot and coffee mug with unicorn white pigment ink and then blasted it quickly with a heat gun. Then I used colored pencils to color the images. I struggle with blending my polychromos as easily as I can blend prismas so I tried using thin lines rather than small circles…interesting result. I added a few accents with a white gel pen and then stamped the sentiment with versamark and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. Finally I used the new Stitched Layers dies from Waffle Flower to create textured frames for my image. I used Blue Lagoon and Kraft cardstock from Gina K and I’ve gotta say…I’m really liking her cardstock! I’ve been using it more and more on my cards and will share some thoughts on that and her amazing inks soon! 🙂
Anyway, I definitely encourage you to head over and check out Gina K Designs! Start your weekend with a little retail therapy! 🙂 Thanks for visiting and have a fabulous day!
