Hello everyone, Happy Easter Weekend!
I have a couple of cards today featuring stamps from Designs by Ryn.
This first card features Ryn's African Daisy, Seaweed set & Sea Bubbles. I must have 'Spring Fever' with these sunny colours. We are still waiting for our snow to melt, but it is getting milder, I can't wait to get into the gardens again.
The background is a piece of watercolour paper that I used as a 'mop up' sheet of green & blue from other projects.
I used both stamps from the Seaweed set
- the outline and solid design to create the 'foilage' with Pine
Needles Distress Ink. I used a white Gellyroll pen to colour inside the
outline branches. I stamped the small Sea Bubble along the edge with black Versafine Ink and again highlighted with the white Gellyroll pen. I embossed the Daisies with black and coloured with my Tombow markers.
The sentiment is from Chocolate Baroque's Words of Gratitude set.
And below is a second design using the same African Daisy stamp. The
actual card is much more vibrant, the photograph is dark unfortunately
and I tried many ways to get it to come out properly.
I started with Dylusions Inks in the background (red & purple). I used Dylusions Luscious Leaves stencil with Viva Decor Bronze Modelling Creme.
I love the texture & shine you get using this creme. It dries
quickly, you need to clean your stencil immediately with water after
I used Seedless Preserves Distress Ink to stamp the Leafy Branch and blended more around the edges of the background. The African Daisies
were embossed with gold, I used Mica Colour paints to colour &
added Copper stickles to the centres. All stamps are available one
line at Designs by Ryn's webstore.
The African Daisy is also available at Crop Circles.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the weekend!
