This first card is done with shaving cream, some Tim Holtz re-inkers
and some Delusions sprays. I did lots that will end up being used over the next
weeks, months, years :). The ones you see here I did rows of drops of colours in the
rainbow colours then used a skewer to mix and swirl. I had fun playing but there wasn't that
much that I saw and thought wow love that other than these ones, so yes I would play
again but only to do these colour mixes.
I used watercolour paper scrapes and also some Tim Holtz watercolour paper that I had stamped on one side then found I couldn't use with Zigs and it was just sitting there so now its all used up.
Just check out the inserts for those frames, the frames themselves and even the die cut 'happy birthday'
Love them. After die cutting, I glued in place, added the sentiment to the top one then decided to add the XOXO from another die cut set this time in shimmer silver. Coloured this gorgeous blue bird
from Purple Onion and attached it so it looked like it is sitting on the frame.
Im hoping this card is CAS enough for the CAS Mix Up Marbling, Stamping and Something Else Challenge. Will also be great for the Seize the Birthday Challenge Tags and a couple of others.
This next card I did with a couple of challenges, mainly being Virginias View (mmm is this too heavily sprayed) and The Card Concept, Rainbows, in mind and is again a new technique to me. Using the Delusions Sprays as actual sprays. They are really strong colours and I again used up those watercolour papers that had been stamped then not used on the one side.
I laid the piece of watercolour paper in a box, I used lots of pieces of acetate (I tend to keep all the spare pieces that come with the stamp sets when I unpack my stamps). So I keep them all and they pile up and are perfect for this. Each time I covered the areas I didnt want to get spray on with the acetate then sprayed across the watercolour paper. I added a little sprayed water if help was needed to spread. I then dried each section before going to the next. Then I would place a piece of acetate over the first colour but leave a slight edge of the coloured area so I could overspray and also covered the uncoloured paper leaving a triangle clear for the next spray.
After I had finished I had had a couple of runs within colours but still liked the end result and
when I turned it I thought it looked like a scene, yes you need to squint and squish your eyes and then you too can see the grass and sand then the path and the sky, no not really, but I love how the colours turned out and I visualised my Purple Onion critters getting together to celebrate Rainbows and Sunshine. Then I framed them in a gold stitched die cut and added the sparkly words.
All done, I hope you like them. Time to link them up and I hope you come again soon.
