Are you getting tired of me yet? Thank you all for your wonderful compliments on my class homework, which just encourages me to keep on creating and posting so, really, it's not my fault, it's your fault. Convulsionary logic at its best!
But, seriously, it's nice to be able to have a free week to take the class and do my homework the same day. That hasn't happened in the past, and I have found it hard to disciple myself to go back and do it at a later date.
I used bumpy watercolor paper so you can tell by the uninked white areas of the flowers that I did, in fact, use a mask or the sponged blue inks would have colored in those uninked areas of the flowers. It was good practice and I think I picked a better image for the concept on my second card.
Anywhizzle, for this card, the pretty metallic raspberry paper is from a DCWV pack. The cone flower is from SU ("Inspired by Nature") inked in Archival black on Ranger watercolor paper and the background was sponged with DIs. Water droplets were smattered about. Although it doesn't show well, I also sprayed a fine white mist all over.
In the masked area, I stamped the NBUS sediment from The Stamps of Life "Umbrella4you" set. I covered the cone flower with Modge Podge and added some rain stones to complete the front.
It kinda looks like creepy fingers in the closeup to show you the sparkle. You'll have to use that awesome imagination of yours to add some creepy dramatic music right now.
Speaking of friends, I'd like to wish my friend Ardyth (of "Maskerade!") a very happy birthday today and many, many more!
My second card:
Again I spattered water and white. You can better see the white droplets on this card. The stamp is "Jumbo Poinsettia" by Stampendous. The "Vertical Merry Christmas" is by Paper Inspirations. You may not be able to see that the center pips of the poinsettia are plumped up with Modge Podge.
I'm off to class, skipping to "a tiskit, a brisket, a green and yellow frisket!"
Enjoy your day! No, seriously, enjoy! LITS!*
