I'll Stand By You

Here is A Blog Name Hero July Challenge - Masculine, below is the challenge photo:


I decided to make a card using Hero Arts Color Layering Flamingo to make a masculine card. Below is the finished card:


I stamped the first flamingo directly on the white cardstock. The 2nd flamingo was stamped and die cut with the matching die. I attached the 2nd flamingo with foam tapes besides the first one. I also stamped the grass with Hero Arts Ombre ink pad. I cut out the white cardstock with a slanted line and attached it on grey cardstock. Finish the card by stamping "I'll stand by you". This care is especially great to send it to your significant half to encourage him that you will be always with him. Below is another look of the card:


I would like to have this card to attend another challenge - Simon Wednesday Challenge - Things With Wings. Below is the challenge photo:



Supplies:
Cardstock: MTF, Simon Says Stamp
Stamps: Hero Arts
Dies: Hero Arts
Ink Pads: Hero Arts, Altenew, Versafine

Thinking Of You Card With Distress Stains

Here is the card I made to attend Mandy's Facebook June Challenge as well as Tim Holtz Summer of Creative Chemistry week 2 challenge. Below is the challenge photo of Summer of Creative Chemistry:


Here is the card I made for this challenge:


I applied Distress Stains - dusty concord, broken china, spun sugar, cracked pistachio, and picket fence (in between each color) on the craft sheet and mist them with water. Then, I put a piece of white cardstock to make the background. Let it dry completely. I stamped the model from Runway stamp set and colored with Copic markers. I brushed the clear Wink of the Stella pen on the dress to make it shiny. I also stamped the Paris stamp (from Tim Holtz Cityscapes stamp set) with light grey on the background. Stamped the greeting "thinking of you" at the bottom of the card. Attached the girl with foam tapes on the right-hand side of the card. Below is another look of the card:

Distress Batik Effect Technique

Here is the card I made with Distress ink pads using the batik effect technique. Below is the finished card:

I stamped these leaf stamps (Tim Holtz Falling Leaves set) with Versamark ink pad on a white cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then, I sprayed a little bit of water and crimped the white cardstock to create the folded lines. I used the bone folder to smooth out the folded lines. I applied five different green shades of Distress ink pads on the leaf background (see below):


The five green shades of Distress ink pads are: evergreen bough, mowed lawn, peacock feather, twisted citrus, and cracked pistachio. I tried to spread out the green colors on the different spots of white cardstock. Then, I applied more and more inks to darken the colors. So, the colors will go into all of the folded lines to create the batik effect. Finish the card by stamping the greeting on a stripe of vellum and white embossed it. Below is another look of the card:


I would like to have this card to attend the following two challenges:

1) Simon Monday Challenge - Monochrome, below is the challenge photo:

2) Tim Holtz Summer of Creative Chemistry - Week 1 of Challenge 1: using 4 or more colors of Distress ink. Below is the challenge photo:


Supplies:
