Heat embossing and water coloring

20140807-003056-1856851.jpg

I started to make this card few days ago when I got my new water colour. I used this teal stamp from HeroArts to play with the new water colour. I wanted to make it a “Bollywood” look with strong and attractive colors.

The petal stamp which I love so much. I have tried coloring it with markers before and I would like to try it with heat embossing in the future.

Card made in day 1 of Stretch Your Stamps 2 online card class

I am now taking an online card class called Stretch Your Stamps 2 from onlinecardclasses.com

Here is the card I made in day 1 class. Well, I am not quite satisfy with it and surely I need more practices.

The stamp I used here is the lattice background stamp from Hero arts. I like this stamp and it was the first bg stamp I bought.

cards made using my son’s handprint

Actually it is not a handprint. Since my son is just 3 months old and I don't have any ink for making handprint at home. I just put his little hands on a sheet of vellum and then traced the shape of his hands using a pencil. And then I cut out the shape of his hands and made these two cards.

The first one, I used the Koh-I-Noor Hardtmuth Round water colour 24 to water-coloured the background, by using the cut vellum as mask and then stamp the sentiment using the Chit Chat stamp sets with die cut by Lawn Fawn.

It is a birthday card for my younger brother.

The second one, I used the Thank you Grid stamp from Hero Arts, and technique learnt from Jennifer McGuire Ink, which is my favourite blog owned by Jennifer McGuire, who make beautiful beautiful cards. The technique is called “pop up stamping”
