I’ve been at it again – coloring that is. This time with Stampin’ Blends as they are so EASY to use. I enjoy coloring ~ with pencils, Blends, Blending Brushes, sponge daubers, even watercolors. I’m not so good at watercoloring and would like to play with that more. So what are you up to? What is your favorite medium?

‘Painted’ True Love DSP – #1

This shouts SPRING to me, maybe because of the purple, or Easter. Nonetheless… it uses both Highland Heather and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends for the purples, Old Olive and Granny Apple Green for the leaves, and just a bit of Daffodil Delight for the centers of the flowers. I cut them down to size, mounted them on panels of Highland Heather, put them on dimensionals and added them to a Basic White panel. I then stamped the sentiment from Art Gallery stamp set in Memento Black ink. This panel also got dimensionals and was adhered to a Highland Heather card base. I added three Metallic Pearls in Gold and the card front was done…. The hardest part was deciding how to use the ‘painted’ panel. And I settled on the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches 475 to use my colored panel.

For the inside I used one of the strips left over and adhered it to the Basic White panel with liquid glue and then into the Highland Heather for the inside to be ‘fait accomplis’. And the envelope was super simple: more True Love DSP adhered to the flap and a smaller piece of the ‘painted’ DSP I fussy cut and adhered to the card front with liquid glue. VOILA!
