I love the time that I spent learning new art journaling techniques - and still enjoy creating pages for my art journals. But I also find it very exciting to get a chance to use some of those techniques in my card making as well.
I created the background for this card using water color paper, Tim Holtz tissue paper and my Gelatos. Then I used a Penny Black stamp called Demure and a Penny Black sentiment die cut called Envision to create the focal point of the card. The flowers are colored with watercolors, then I went over the entire stamp with a black gel pen and highlighted it with a PITT pen to bring more dimension to it. I love how dramatic it came out!
I'll enter this into some challenges:
Penny Black and More - Anything goes
That Craft Place - Mixed media
Stamping Sensations - Sew special
Crafty Catz - Anything goes
Chocolate Coffee and Cards - Fancy & Feminine
My Time to Craft - Flowers
Back soon with more from my weekend of crafting!
