Well, I came back from lunch with my friend
to find that Sage had gone to the farm with her dad for the afternoon.
So, I had to carry on with the challenges solo. :(
I decided to tackle Danielle's Gilded in Gold Challenge.
First of all, I tried using the Liquid Leaf with a Stencil, but that didn't work.
So I decided to create a large stripe of it on my card.
I stamped my Sketched Florals flower and leaves in berry sorbet
and aqua mist several times using my MISTI and inking my stamp
with an ink blender in between stampings.
I stamped the sentiment (from Songbirds) in versamark
on a strip of black cardstock and heat embossed it in white.
I decided to add some Liquid Gold to the flower centre
and was pretty happy when it turned out in the shape of a heart.
For my next card, I had an extra "faith" diecut from my Starry Night card,
so I coated it with Liquid Gold.
I stamped the Sketched Florals stamps and leaves in aqua mist and
mint julep using the same method as my first card.
I stamped the sentiment from Inspired: Faith in versafine onyx black ink
and adhered my gold diecut.
And lastly, I made a card for Melissa's Floral Impressionism Challenge.
Once again, I used the same Sketched Florals stamps and dies
and the same technique that Melissa demonstrated.
I blended some sweet blush onto my background and
adhered my flowers and leaves.
I diecut the Layered Banner Banter dies from white cardstock
and blended some summer sunrise onto the background diecut.
I stamped the sentiment (from Layered Banner Banter) twice --
the first time in berry sorbet (twice with my MISTI), and
then a third time, offset slightly, in summer sunrise that was stamped off first.
Well, Sage is home, we've eaten supper and we're going
to watch the next Stamp-a-faire videos and see how many
cards we can make this evening.
Thanks for looking!
