Emerging Color

Emerging Color

The moment I saw this technique on SCS I knew I'd have to try it. I did and have just recently taught it in some of my technique classes. It gets a great reaction! Bashful Blue, Apricot Appeal and Certainly Celery...along with Brocade Blue and Night of Navy.


Sympathy

Sympathy

Had to make a sympathy card so I used some toned-down colors and kept things simple. Blue Bayou, River Rock, Basic Black and Whisper White. Wild Wasabi double-stitched ribbon. Sentiments from retired sets I have laying around.


Sparkle

Sparkle

I was inspired by a Leadership swap made by Brenda Hukriede. In fact, the only thing I changed was the sentiment stamp and the size of the card. Groovy Guava, Purely Pomegranate, Whisper White, Soft Sky and Basic Black. Some Dazzling Diamonds on the flower really makes it sparkle. I love this color combo and card. Brenda's a genius.


Black Magic

Black Magic

Ran across this technique (Black Magic...Karen Barber, I think) on SCS. It's a liitle time-consuming, but so worth it! I stamped the image in Whisper White Craft ink and heat set. Then colored with my watercolor crayons on top of the white ink (the directions called for pigment pencils, like our Pure Color Art Pencils or Metallic Art Pencils, but I didn't have either so I improvised). I then outline parts with my Signo White Gel Pen (love that thing). Color on black really looks amazing!


SimpleBlue

SimpleBlue

Looking for something simple after cutting a lot of flowers out. Whisper White, Soft Sky and Blue Bayou...very soothing. And quick.


Pearl

Pearl

The Color Wheel told me that Pixie Pink, Gable Green and Bashful Blue would look nice together. I stamped the large flower three times...once in PIxie Pink, once in Pink Passion and once in Purely Pomegranate. I cut them out and layered different pieces together. The white taffeta ribbon and the half-back pearl from the Pretties Kit really "girly" this up.


CattyCase

CattyCase

I was inspired by the sample in the 2008 Spring/Summer catalog for this one. Very Vanilla, River Rock, Groovy Guava and Ruby Red.


FabFlowers

FabFlowers

A simple, one-layer card done in Tempting Turquoise, Taken with Teal (marker used on "Dare to be"), Cameo Coral and Apricot Appeal. I added Dazzling Diamonds to the "Fabulous" to make it fabulous.


FabFlowersPolkaDots

FabFlowersPolkaDots

I wanted to do a no layer card, and this was what I came up with. After reverse masking, I outlined the area with a Chocolate Chip marker and added a sentiment. Then I decided to add some dry embossing. I foolishly placed my paper so that I was working on the right side (which is wrong) and so I have debossed dots as well as embossed dots. I sort of like the effect.


FabFlowersMarkered

FabFlowersMarkered

This card showcases three different marker techniques (shading, multi-coloring a single stamp and faux stitching). The base color is Riding Hood Red and I used a Bravo Burgundy marker for the techniques.
