Ladies and gentlemen, Greta...
Thanks for all the positive comments on my initial Leading Lady post. I'm so appreciative of your support. Now it's time for Take 2.
This week I wanted to show you some ways to add color without the traditional art of coloring, since that's not one of my talents. I often use solid images, but I'm not restricted to them. Here are some cards with open images & techniques anyone can do.
First up is a card using the adorable snowman from Snowy Holiday with Evelin T Designs.
I added Shimmer Pico Embellisher to parts of the snowman for clear sparkly dimension. The sentiment is from The Big, the Bold & the Happy & I added a few clear sequins. Next is a fun Valentine's Day card using a die from Essentials: Tilda Cutaways that makes an opening for a gift card.
The white embossed sentiment strip made with words from The Big, the Bold & the Happy was mounted with foam tape. The background is done with white dye ink & Scenery: Pennsylvania Polka Creative Screenings. I didn't want the actual gift card to detract, so I covered the back of it with a scrap of Bristol paper colored with the blue gray Zig & dry embossed with little dots. My last card is another example of messy watercoloring. This time I stamped a beautiful leaf image from In Bloom: Renee's Leaves across the top of a white panel in Distress Inks pine needles & evergreen bough.
