Over in the Kraafters Kommunity on Google+, we have a continuing kaard project where we meet via "Hangouts" once a month. We make kaards to brighten the days of others, to let them know we are thinking of them as they face life's challenges, and they are in our prayers.
We met online yesterday and these are the cards I made:
Sunshine: I embossed the kraft card stock and matching envelop. The Sun is stamped and colored with Copics, then fussy-cut. The Orangish square is from a watercolor blocking I made with Distress Inks, which I cut up for this card.
My Thoughts: Cream card stock, a watercolor blocking and stamping I made which I cut up for this card, thenstamped the dragon fly image over it and using an H2O Brush, I spread the water based ink to mute it and blend in with the other watercolors. Added some sparkler to the bursts with a silver Gel Pen. Using the same Distress Ink Peacock Feather, I watercolored the cotton twine.
Hi: Using the triple layer stamp techniques I gleaned from fellow card maker, Sheri Whitfield, I used Distress Inks to stamp the image, layered with turquoise paper. Stamped the dragon fly onto the card stock and also again onto a scrap, fussy-cut and adhered with foam tape.
Mugs: Using the same watercolor paper, I stamped on the mugs, then colored with Copics. Embellied some mugs with silver Gel Pen for sparkle. Stained the ribbon with Distress Inks to match the colors in the card.
