Hi and welcome, everyone! Today we are featuring Jessica from the Polka Dot Orchard Blog, our July Guest Designer here on the blog. She's has created another fun card with scene building and watercolors.
SumMore Fun carries a stamp line called Victorine Originals which has some pretty amazing stamps that you can build your own scenery with. I stamped each stamp in different Memento ink colors onto Canson XL Watercolor paper using my MISTI stamping tool. I then painted my stamped panel with Peerless watercolors. I really like how stamping in the different colors created a no-line affect after I was done painting. The ink colors and stamps I used will be listed below.
- Dolphin ~ London Fog
- Sand Castle ~ Desert Sand
- Ocean Waves ~ Summer Sky
- Flock of Seagulls ~ Gray Flannel
After I was done painting I decided to stamp and paint the sand castle and dolphin again. Except this time I fussy cut them out and used foam tape to pop them up off the original image on my stamped panel. I really like the 3D look it created.
Before attaching this to my card base I stamped in the top corner "be you" In nautical blue Memento ink using a stamp from Risin Boat set called "Imagine", and then wrapped some blue and white twine on the left and right side of my painted panel. Risin Boat is another wonderful line of stamps that SumMore Fun carries.
After my painted panel was attached to my card base I felt it needed something more, which of course was a little bit of sequins. I decided to add blue sequins to the water which I felt was the perfect place to add it because the prettiest wasters are the ones that sparkle.
Well, that's it for today and I hope I have inspired you in some way.
Thanks for stopping by.
