Only 5 more cards till I meet my 50 cards and can lift my craft shopping moratorium.
So I have several more projects that I finished for AIR to share. For the first two projects, I did the paint it background again. (See my last post for details on the technique).
For this one, I used brown cardstock for the base and stamped it with the flourish stamp by Inkadinkado and the sentiment stamp by Stampin Place. After the paint dried, I edged the piece with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo (maybe Tea Dye).
The next one is another Christmas card. I stamped the snowflakes on dark blue cardstock. The stamp is by Inkadinkado. And painted with silver metallic paint. The main image is by Stampendous. It was left over from one of the kit in the envelop swap. I colored it with metallic watercolors. The blue is not showing up very well in the photo. The ribbon on the ornament was the hanging loop in a dress that I cut out. The other ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I also made a second card for the clean and simple challenge. The image is a digi stamp by Tiddly Inks and colored with watercolor pencils. The sentiment is by Technique Tuesday.
And I've got one last card for you. I made it for the back to the beginning challenge. For that challenge, the host wanted us to go back to the days before there was all the fancy supplies for making cards on the market today. We were not allowed to use dies, punches, stamps or inking. Yikes. Since I got my start crafting when I grandma put a small counted cross stitch kit in my Christmas stocking when I was in the fifth grade (29 years ago, where did the time go?), I decided to see if I had any spare Aida cloth, and I found a snippet of cloth. So I pulled out my DMC floss and stitched a little floral scene. I added a button from my stash of spare buttons that come with clothes to make the sun. The ribbon was from my cousin's bridal shower. It is a lovely deep purple satin. She got a ton of it because it came with all of the wrapped gifts she got from Bed, Bath & Beyond. The photo does not do it justice. It is absolutely lovely in person.
Since I used snippets for die cutting the tree and on the stitched piece, I'm going to pop over to the playground. Which, I was featured in last weeks picks and won one of the drawings. I'm looking forward to getting my new stamps in the mail.
