Hello creative people, I hope you are doing well.
Life here is very busy and I'm still taking a break from blogging, however I've had the pleasure to Guest Design again for the wonderful Crealies company. I'm showing a couple of cards today that I designed using their beautiful dies and little stamps. These were shown at the Crealies Blog yesterday.
The background was created with Distress Inks (China, Blueprint & Raspberry) and water on an acrylic plate. I over stamped using the little hearts with Raspberry DI with Bits & Pieces stamp #50. Using the circle stencil CLMM20 (which is temporarily out of stock) I added more contrast with first Blueprint DI and then white acrylic paint.
I coloured the flowers with the same Distress Inks and stamped the circles Bits & Pieces stamp #53 before molding them (using a stylus and foam mat) to create dimension.
The card has the lovely shape using theXXL Tag No. 7. I folded the card stock before cutting and placed the edge of the die just past the fold to make a card in the die shape.
I also created a little gift tag to match.
I used the following Crealies products to create the card above.
For my second card below, I used a mixed media piece (with collage) for the background. It has many layers including tissue, texture paste, Neocolour crayons, white and black acrylic paint. I like to 'decorate' mixed media backgrounds using die cut flowers, leaves and shapes. I coloured the flowers with co-ordinating Distress Inks and spritzed the entire card with Gold Glimmermist.
