My Favorite Things Purr-fect Friends ~ Zig Clean Color ~ Valentines Day Card

Hey everyone,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and was able to enjoy spending the time with family and friends. I am enjoying my time off and spending it with family. I was able to sneak away into my craft cave and create a card inspired by current My Favorite Things’ Color Challenge # 83.

My Favorite Things Pur-fect Friends stamp set colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and ink smooshing background handmade Valentine card.

To create the background, I used a piece of watercolor paper and #82 Purple Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker to ink smoosh onto the paper. I cut the panel down to 4 by 5.25 using MFT’s Wonky Stitched Rectangle Die.
The images were stamped onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock using VersaFine ink in Onyx Black and colored using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.

Color combinations I used

082 Purple
061 Light Brown
042 Turquoise Green

Originally the bird cage was stamped onto a piece of white paper, however, after cutting it out, I did not like the look. So onto plan B, I pulled out heat resistant acetate and stamped the bird cage image on it.

To put this card together, I used a piece of cream colored cardstock as the base of card, added the watercolor panel and adhered all of my pieces either using Ranger multi medium matte or foam adhesive for some dimension.

This is my entry card for the My Favorite Things’ Color Challenge # 83.

As always, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

To put this card together, I stamped a diagonal stripe on one edge using Hero Arts’ Deep Ocean hybrid ink. I cut a piece of adorable red with white stars patterned paper from Echo Park Birthday Wishes paper pad, and adhered it to an A2 top folding card base. I took a piece of grey cardstock and cut a stitched circle and the sentiment tag. The sentiment I used is from the same stamp set as the image and I stamped it using Versafine Onyx Black pigment ink. For final touches to the card, I added a few blue rhinestones from my stash.

Lawn Fawn Aloha ~ Distress Ink backgrounds ~ Zig Clean Color Markers

Hey everyone,

For the end of the week, I thought I’d have a go at participating in a challenge from Lawn Fawn over on their challenge blog Lawnfawnatics.com
For this week, the challenge was to add watercolor to our projects. Here is my take on the challenge number 7.

Lawn Fawn Aloha stamp colored with Zig Clean Color and Distress Inked background handmade card.

I started by taking a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock cut down to 4” x 5.5” and die cut a circle in the front. My sweet little girl helped me to cover the cardstock with color splashes using Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon and Wild Honey.
To create the sunset, I used a piece of watercolor paper and using the same Distress Ink colors I created a watercolor sunset background. The technique I used, I first saw over on Kristina Werner’s blog, where you add a wash of color in a sweeping motion across the desired section. After adding all of the color choices, and drying it, I then added little swirly marks of each color and a lot of water on the brush to each color, and dried it again. I’m really happy with the end result.
Using Lawn Fawn’s Aloha stamp and die set, I stamped the two pineapples onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock and Versafine Onyx black pigment ink. I colored the images using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers in 044 deep green for the leaves, and 050 yellow and 052 bright yellow for the pineapples.

To put the card together, I took a piece of bright pink A2 sized card base and added the watercolor sunset, and top cardstock. I put the pineapples on a piece of foam tape for some dimension and added the sunglasses with a little shimmer using Spectrum Noir Sparkle glitter overlay pen. To finish the card, I added the sentiment from the same stamp set by heat embossing it with white embossing powder onto a piece of black cardstock.
This little baby will be entered into the challenge so here’s my fingers crossed for a win!
