Happy Wednesday everyone!
First, I want to let you all know that I made the Heartfelt Creations Design Team for another term!!! I'm so excited to be able to stay on the team! Thank you to all of you who voted for me! It has been such a blessing to work with HC this past year, and I'm so looking forward to the next 6 months! On the HC Blog you can see the 10 of us who will remain on the team and the 10 new designers we will be working with!
Now, time for some inspiration! I have 2 cards to share with you today! The first is "Tranquil Evening".
I used the Tranquil Evening Set and colored this with Tombow Markers on watercolor paper. I'm trying to get better with my Tombow Markers, but I think I'll stick with my pencils for now! It's such a different medium to work with and I'm a little impatient with it!
My second card is "Peacock Delicate Aster Vase".
For this card I used the Delicate Aster Vase Set and tried the Triple Stamping/Seamless Tiers Technique from Split Coast Stampers. Basically, you stamp the one image over 3 pieces of paper and add mats to cover the white spots. All 3 pieces were colored with Black Pencil and mineral spirits. (Complete instructions for both of these are at the end of my post.)
Make sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog to see all the beautiful creations from the new design team this week!
Thank you for stopping today!
