Liquid Color Meetup


Orange Park Crafts & Card Meet Up

My Meetup Group created these cards using liquid color (3-5 drops)
Water spritzed onto the block
and  a Baby wipe to color in the background of their paper.


 First the ladies chose their stamp set they wanted to work with
then created a random stamped background

to fill that lovely white space they used the method described above with the liquid colors













Each person had their own technique to color in and their own take on  my sample.
Love it! Be creative! Get Crafty!

Bloom Box Blog Hop






Welcome to the Bloom Box Blog Hop!  We will be Bringing Paper to Life with the Mermaid Kisses Bloom Box. 


I'm so happy you're hoppin' along! If you have arrived here from Kristina's blog, you're on the right track.  If not, that's ok too! Just continue the hop and you'll come full circle!


This mermaid card started out as an idea, and it didn't end exactly like I imagined I still love how it turned out.

The base of the card is Riverstone
I started with a Fun Stampers Journey Color Splash sheet then the started creating the background with the starfish stamp in black licorice and filled in the remaining background with the bubble stamp also in black licroce.

I then used the Liquid Colors and water to create the background:
Purple Amethyst
Lovely Blue
Limeade Splash 

I tied a bow using Sweet Pear Satin Ribbon and Popped the front of the card off the base.
After stamping the Mermaid on Whipcream Cardstock I used watercolor pencils to color her, I die cut the mermaid and popped her up (When in Doubt, pop it out!)


To complete the look of the card I added journey glaze to some of the background elements as well as the mermaid.


This card was created using the same technique as the first card. However, I did not use ColorSplash sheets just whip cream card stock. I used the liquid colors on the mermaid image instead of stamping it, then I laid my cardstock on the stamp and rubbed over the stamp onto the back of the cardstock to get the image to the paper.

I then die cut the mermaid out using the RG Amaze.

The background was created using the pretty amethyst ink pad and finished with journey glaze on the bubbles of the card.

Here is a Quick Video of the process for the 2 cards.

Brining Paper to Life Blog Hop




Welcome to the Journey Blog Hoppers Hop!  We will be Bringing Paper to Life with our 2017-2018 Idea Book & Catalog Release Theme!


I'm so happy you're hoppin' along! If you have arrived here from Kim's blog, you're on the right track.  If not, that's ok too! Just continue the hop and you'll come full circle!


                          


The first project I am sharing with you is from the Mystic Romance Collection in our New 2017-2018 Idea Book & Catalog. I took a piece of Rich Coral Cardstock to create the card base, I cut a piece of 8.5x11 card stock in Half. For the card front, I used Whip cream cardstock, I then inked up the stamp set Embroidered Rose and chose a rose image and using Rich Coral Fusion Ink I randomly stamped the front of the whip cream cardstock piece. I then took my limeade splash and randomly added leaves.



Originally I loved the front panel so much I was going to place the sentiment on the inside of the card. I decided to go ahead and trim a piece of whip cream cardstock for the sentiment.
Using the sentiment beautiful from the stamp set Beauty Blooms I inked it in black licorice and adhered it to the front panel. I then finished assembling my card and added sparkle silk.

The stamp sets I used today are so beautiful together and alone. The Embroidered Rose gives off that exact look of embroidery and the sentiment Beautiful gives a crisp clear image of a stitched sentiment.

The Next Card I created I used the Stamp Set Harvest Wreath in the Holiday Section of the New Catalog & Idea Book.




I paired this stamp set with the Journey Circles Die, using the largest circle die and piercing element on whip cream card stock. I used my favorite go to cardstock base color, Riverstone to create the card.



Using Black Licorice (in the future I will use Oatmeal Cookie as the base color) I stamped the wreath
Using Dark Roast and Lime Ade splash I chose a leaf from the Stamp Set and randomly filled up the wreath with the leaves stamp in alternating colors.

To finish it off I added a Ribbon at the top of the card
and stamped the sentiment thanks at the bottom of the card.


I just love the font on this stamp set, the sentiments all look and stamp beautifully straight from the packaging no conditioning of the stamps needed, one of my FAVORITE things about Fun Stampers Journey!

Lookin Sharp





Hey everyone.. What a crazy crazy month it has been and we are barely into the middle of July!
I was able to get crafty last night while prepping for my MeetUp Stamp a Stack class.

I decided to try and re-create a card that was demonstrated by Dan Arwine at Fun Stampers Journey convention in June. Dan used watercolor pencils, unfortunately since most of my Craft Room is packed up (we have sold our house and are in the process of purchasing another house) I created the look using markers.


I stamped the Cacti using Black Licorice and added the sentiment at the bottom of the card in black licorice. 
 Now let's color!
then I colored the desert ground brown making sure to color around the sentiment, added the sky using the blue and colored the cacti using green.
I then took grey and went around the cacti and under them to create some definition as well as a shadow. The final step was adding some gold silk and sparkle silk.

Voila! Finished Card!!




 I can't wait to unpack and find my watercolor pencils and re-create this with the soft watercolor look. Fun Stampers Journey has so many coloring options other than just using your ink pads, Color Burst Pencils, Water Color Pencils, Acrylic Paint, Re-Inkers and Pan Pastels just to name a few.
