I Colored!

27 07 2018

It’s been a month or so since I posted.

Little man is doing GREAT in ABA therapy, but we’re doing roughly 20 hours a week, so we’re pretty busy which doesn’t leave a lot of crafting time. But he’s worth it so no big.

Because of the time restrictions, I don’t get to make a lot of 3D projects anymore, but I’ve found that I can do a card or two here and there, so that’s what I’m sharing today 🙂

So one of the new things I bought myself was the Tim Holtz/Tonic Studios stamp platform. One of the things I REALLY loved about this device is the work space on the side that I can use as a color pallet. So I used my inks and tried a little water coloring. Many of the cards shown below will be water colored. These images are stamped then colored. And with many of these cards I used a masking technique when I stamped the images.

The hummingbird is water color mixed with pencil. The orchid is water color.

Set 1

The flamingo is water colored with pencil on top as well as sponged on color.

Flamingo Thank You Watercolor

On the flower, I used my copics then pencils over top. I finished that one off by heat embossing black over the top after the image was colored. The heron is a mix of copics and pencils. Then the image was embossed with clear embossing powder and the sky filled in with water color and sponging on color from my ink pads.

Set 3

The flowers were done with markers directly on the stamp then stamped on to the paper. Then I sponged the background. What you can’t see, due to poor planning on my part, are the words Thinking of You that I embossed in white. There’s not enough contrast, so the words get lost on the card. Unfortunately, there’s no undo button on things like this, so it is what it is *shrugs*.

The mermaid card turned out better than I expected which is always a bonus! I used copics then my pencils. The octopus was a layered stamp, but I went in with pencils and embellished areas and deepened others.

Set 2

Typically, I try to link to the products I used, but there are quite a few here and like I said before, time is limited. And really, I’d rather be crafting than linking 😉 BUT if you have a questions about anything I posted, let me know and I’ll do my best to answer 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

xoxo
