August Leading Lady Ashwini Rao | Take Four

As August wanes we must bid adieu to our amazing August Leading Lady, Ashwini Rao.  Each week with Ashwini has been a complete and utter joy and full of so much inspiration, surprising detail, clever touches and superb projects.  What a blessing it has been to have Ashwini on the w&w blog this month.

If you missed her smashing debut you must see it...CLICK HERE or her sensational second performance which is a joyous celebration of color and pattern CLICK HERE or her triumphant third performance showcasing her versatility where she used the same basic design and stamp set to create a trio of lovely cards with different effects CLICK HERE!

Lucky for us all we have her final command performance today and she will be joining us next week for our August/September 2017 Release (be sure to join us beginning Monday, August 28th). 

Winnie & Walter Leading Lady Badge

Hello again! Can't believe its already the last week!! I had so much fun making these cards and posts, wish it would last longer!! For my last post, I am showcasing these cute little critters, so adorable, I just threw away any other ideas I had so I could use them on my cards! :)

  Winnie & Walter Leading Lady - Aug Week 4 - Card 1

For my first card, I used the critters from Party On with Evelin T Designs. I stamped them using a brown ink, then gave them a soft watercoloring using distress inks. I did the same with the flowers. For the background, too I used distress inks. And the grassy hill/ground - I die cut that using the Party On with Evelin T Designs Cutaways, too! The sentiment comes from Happy Dance with Evelin T Designs.

  Winnie & Walter Leading Lady - Aug Week 4 - Card 2

For my second card, I used the critters from Happy Dance with Evelin T Designs. I colored these critters using Zig brush pens. I used distress oxide ink for the background, masking each area for coloring in, added a few splotches of water, then stamped a few stars from the same stamp set, for something extra. Finally added the sentiments from Sentimental: Birthday. I then trimmed the piece, adhering it over a black card base with glitter washi tape at the side.

  Winnie & Walter Leading Lady - Aug Week 4 - Card 3

For my last card, I used the critters from an older set, Happy Owlidays with Evelin T Designs - the owls are just totally adorable! I watercolored the owls using distress inks, fuzzy cut them. For the background, I created a galaxy background using watercolors, then tore up half the panel and mounted it on my white card base. I then added the branch and the cute owls, and also stamped the sentiment.
