Today I am posting a card for Papertrey Ink's Release Week challenge "select something that the amazing team has created during the release that inspired you, and create your own version." I have selected one of my FAVORITE! designers, Amy Sheffer's, card.
Edited to add:
The kind and sweet and oh so talented, Laura Jane of "After Hours Ink and Flowers" blog has encouraged me to add my card to the Altenew June Challenge. Is this Inspiration photo amazing or what!?! and themost beautiful part is this the model is Amy Gray form Altenew in her own wedding dress!!
I am having the time of my life playing with my Zig Water Color Markers. I think they are the best thing since sliced bread : )
The thing I think I love the most about these markers is the bold bright colors you can achieve even though you are using water.
I water colored my flowers on a piece of water color paper first then cut the panel out using a Scallop Rectangle die. Next I cut another rectangle die from black foam and glued my colored frame to the top of the black one. I inserted my colored panel inside the frame so it is just a bit lower than the fame and glued it all down to my card base. I stamped my sentiment using my Misti so that I didn't mess up my card face : ) and applied the die cut "Praise" - which I also colored using the Zigs : )
Please check out the wonderful DT for PTI as well as the gallery for this challenge which is STUFFED! with amazing inspiring and inspired projects from PTI's release week!
And get ready to be impressed when you visited Altenew's blog and take in the sensational cards in the gallery!
I mentioned in my post earlier this week that I got to meet up with some crafty friends to play with paper last Saturday. My new friend, Jill, invited my BFF, Diane, and I to join her and her friend, Stacy, for a papercrafting day. Jill and I "met" on-line a month or so ago and found that we live only about 50 minutes from one another. We had such a fun day of paper crafting and LAUGHTER! we all hit it off beautifully and will try to make this a regular gathering : )
Stacy introduced me to a beautiful new paper called Terra Skin Multi Media Bloc that can be used for water coloring. This paper feels like a super soft light weight suede! It is just dreamy to touch. I created this card using that paper. It is not as absorbent like normal water color paper and therefore the water pools a little and when dried looks really neat!
Thanks a bunch for stopping by! I hope you are having a wonderful day!
Beautiful Day by Altenew
