You're My Love

Hi everyone...
I am glad to be back on Craftin Desert Divas' Blog today sharing my project with Water Coloring Technique with you.

Here is what I made.

Valentine is just around the corner.  I know some of us might not so crazy about Valentine's but I feel that it doesn't necessary to be Valentine's day to tell someone how much you love and care for him/her.  Don't you agree? :)

I made short YouTube vdo showing how I created my hearts background with Heart Of Heart dies with water coloring technique.

Here are some of the photos in close up.

The funky stitched border is from Crazy Stitched Frames dies which you know it's my go to decorative edge die now.  :)

The pink/purple hearts background was made from the Heart Galore stencils with some dye inks.  The sentiment is from Ladybug Garden stamp.  I partially stamped and heat embossed it with white embossing powder on a strip of black card stock.

I stamped and colored the adorable couple from Better Together stamp and colored them with copic markers then fussy cut them out.

Let's take a look at the whole card one more time.

I  hope you like it and I Thank you for stopping by.

Best 2018

Let's Welcome 2018 with Excellent Health and Prosperity Wishes for everyone.

Hi there my crafty friends... I'm here to share my 1st Craftin Desert Divas card for 2018 with you.

I created this card for Craftin Desert Divas January Mood Board Challenge using Water Coloring Technique for the background.

Here is January Mood Board Photo Inspiration.

I hope you can join us at CDD Facebook Gallery for some crafty fun and of course crafty prizes.

Here is how I prepared my card.

Cutting my main panel with Crazy Stitched Frame dies and mountain range die from Scenery dies.  I also embossed the polar bear stamp from Chilly stamp and pretended that he's standing over the cliff.  

I used distress oxide inks as water color medium in iced spruce for the mountain range, lucky clover for the trees and vintage photo for the cliff.  To get the variation of green tones, I mixed lucky clover with abit of vintage photo for darker green.  For the cliff top, after I laid down vintage photo distress oxide ink and let it dried.  I then put thin layer of white paint on top and back again with vintage photo for some variation of brown.  

I did try to color the bear with iced spruce but it's blended too much and I didn't like it so I stamped him again, colored him with copic markers and fuzzy cut him out.

I put the bottom panel on form tape for dimension and adhered the sky down directly onto black card based.  I also cut the mountain snow caps dies from white card stock.  For sentiment, "the best" is from Wishful Thoughts stamp and hand written "2018".  I heat embossed it with white embossing powder on black card stock.

I also have a bonus card for you *lol* and I hope you like it :) I created similar scene but I water colored the mountain background with the same distress oxide inks.

And here is the closer look.

I Thank you so much for stopping by today and I wish you all a Wonderful 2018.
