Today's special guest star creates such saturated, bold and vivacious projects that reflect her bright and sparkling personality. I speak of Laura Bassen of course! I don't think I am alone in always feeling happier after seeing any project Laura makes. We've had the good fortune of having Laura on the w&w blog before and you can see her projects on the w&w blog HERE.
Now I gladly turn over the w&w blog to Laura....
My first card features the adorable Big Hugs with Evelin T Designs stamp set. When I saw that monkey snuggling up to the elephant, I just about died. I love it so much! I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored it in with Copics.
For the background, I embossed the Mini Scenery: Multifaceted stamp with clear embossing powder and blending in Distress inks in Mermaid Lagoon, Cracked Pistachio, Spiced Marmalade & Worn Lipstick. For the sentiment I used both The Big, The Bold & Friends stamp set & coordinating die.
This next card features the awesome True stamp set. I love these gorgeous multi-faceted circles. I embossed each circle in clear and blended distress inks for the color. I used two sizes of circle dies for this. One smaller circle die was used to create a mask to keep my ink blending perfectly inside each circle and the larger circle die was used to create windows to frame the images.
For the sentiment I used The Big, The Bold & Friends stamp set & coordinating dies again. I blended distress inks in Abandoned Coral & Spiced Marmalade on the "smiles" cutaway.
Both of these cards are perfect for the Vanessa's Ink Blending challenge. My first one also fits into the Cute Critters Challenge with Gayatri. Did you see the prize for the challenges? There's a $75.00 gift card (gift code) to the w&w shop!! That's awesomesauce! Hope you'll join in the fun! Thanks so much to Winnie & Walter for having me and thank you for stopping by!
