This Pop It Ups Oval Accordion card uses Saturated Canary’s Secrets digital stamp. I sized it to fit my card and then cut the image apart so I could use part on the front and part on the back. I used the Lattice die on the front – first in Pink Pirouette (which was too dark) and then in Whisper White – leaving just a bit of the underneath showing.
The sentiment in the middle is one of my absolute favorites from the Spring Catalog called Build a Bouquet. I’m using it all over the place! I replace the drawn line on the image with Baker’s Twine and added some hearts. The flower paper is unknown – very old from my stash, and the pink is from the Subtles Paper Pack. I colored the images with my Copic Markers.
Happy Valentines Day! I’ve had this idea in my head for a while but wasn’t even sure it could be done – Bokeh on both sides of one piece of watercolor paper. The answer – yes it can! Because the paper gets pretty wet doing this technique, I thought it would create quite a mess on the other side. But it’s fine! Just make sure you start with a large enough piece of watercolor paper so the sides can be cut down. I used Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Rose Red and Wild Wasabi for this card. After applying the White Craft circles, I sprayed the entire piece with Shimmer Spray! In real life this is a very sparkly card 🙂 After the paper was ready – and dry – I used Karen Burniston’s Tag Pivot die to create the card. The sentiment is from Build a Bouquet – it’s one of my favorite sentiments – and is over stamped with Gorgeous Grunge in Pink Pirouette.
The hearts on the front are a retired Stampin Up punch and the inside heart is from Karen Burniston’s Heart Pivot card die. I added some washi tape, sequins, and a little sliver of gold foil paper – but there is a lot going on in just the paper so I tried to just step away from the embellishments! Wishing you lots of love today – Hugs, Fran
This card started as a Bokeh attempt, turned into a big mess, and ended up being beautiful! I started with watercolor paper and dropped with an aqua painter Pear Pizzazz, Wisteria Wonder, Soft Sky and Daffodil Delight. The Pear Pizzazz turned very muddy, but I added the circles with White Craft ink and it looked okay – but needed something. So I spritzed it with Elegant Eggplant ink mixed with alcohol. Then I stamped it using Gorgeous Grunge in Silver Encore ink! Finally I added the butterfly and some Dazzling Details. Needless to say, the texture on this card is amazing 🙂
So the moral for this card is – more is better! Hugs, Fran
