Seeing Stars

Hey everybody! I am quickly popping in to post a card for the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge "We're Seeing Stars".




First, I created a watercolor background on watercolor paper. I applied water with a brush and then added Distress Inks to paint the grass and the sky. After it was dried, I stamped the sentiment and the star and adhered the panel to a light blue cardbase. I stamped the goose and the stars onto cardstock, colored them with Copics and die-cut them with the matching dies. Finally I adhered the images to the card, using foam tape to pop some up. 

Have a great day and thanks for visiting!

Chalkboard Christmas Card

Today I had some time to play with my stamps and made a chalkboard christmas card for the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge #5 "embossing". Here it is:


For the tag, I used the Simon Says Stamp exclusive set "Tag Sayings". First, I stamped the tag, cut it out and stamped the red striped border. Then I stamped the German sentiment saying "happy holidays". The same tag stamp was used on the black card stock panel, I stamped and heat-embossed it using white embossing powder. Then I did the same with the holly leaves from the Paper Smooches Holly Jolly set. To create the chalkboard look, I smeared white pigment ink over the panel and added some shadows with a white pencil. The stamped tag was adhered with foam tape, then I die-cut two holly leaves, adhered them to the card and finished everything off with "berries" aka red rhinestones.
I hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping by today!
