Craftin Desert Divas' March Stamp Release Blog Hop Day 1 - Saturday 05 March

Welcome to the CDD March Stamp Release Blog Hop. 
All stamps are in the CDD Shop and now available for purchase HERE.














Here's what I've created for you...

Magical Wishes

I created this card with the vision in mind that the Unicorn is luminary in the dark sky.  I first stamped the unicorn with various watercolor markers on watercolor paper using markers stamping technique.  
I then used paint brush with little of water to pull in the colors from the stamp lines toward inside of the image.  Once the image was dried I masked it with post-it note and began to distress my night sky but left the surrounding of the image white.  I then used light blue distress ink to distress around the masked image started from inside the image toward out the sky.


Here is upclose look for the unicorn...



I heat embossed the sentiment and the twirly stars tails with white embossing powder.  I then used white gel pen to create the dots as stars in the sky and decorated some of the stars using CDD brand new sequins Fairy DustsI then attached the whole panel to my card base and 
My 1st card was done!


Here is a closeup for the sentiment, twirly stars tail 
& Fairy Dust sequins

2nd card : Mini Stamps
Toad you, Chameleon, Flew by and Spots

I had so much fun creating this mini polaroid type of card showcasing all 4 mini stamps for this release.
I started by stamping all 4 images on white card stock and colored them with various copic markers.  I then cut 4 pieces of black card stock to size of 2" x 2.5"Then cut the inside to make a window left about 1/8" at all 3 sides and 1/2" at the bottomI then cut my images to fit each of the polaroid frames.  Before I attached them together I did abit of inking around the edges.  I also stamped the sentiment from the previous release Kitchen Cuties stamp set to one of the polariod picture.  

To create my background panel, I used Log image from our new release stamp set Build A Scene.  I stamped the log repeatedly around the edges, colored them with brown copic markers and green markers around them.  I then arranged all my 4 polaroid pictures on top of my background panel and attached them to my black card base.  

To finish up the card I used our brand new CDD sequins Pastel Paradise to accent my card.

Here are closer look : Toad you and Chameleon

: Flew by and Spots
