With Love

By Taheerah | 3rd March 2013 | 12 Comments

Hey everyone! Sunday already?! How’d that happen?!

I’ve been playing with more new PTI and this time focused on the Cutting Garden set. I’ve been loving the watercolour trend lately and this seemed like a good set to experiment with:

What do yo think? I’m not 100% on this card, but I think it works!

I started with a Rustic White card base. I then sprayed my bloom stamps with Heidi Swapp Colour Shine Mist in Primrose and Georgia Peach and stamped with them. *Love* the effect, and the shimmer!! The leaves were done in a similar vein with the Chartreuse mist.

I used a paintbrush to splatter on some of those mists, then wet my paintbrush and dragged a little of the colour out from the images. I then splattered with Gold Lame spray. I added some gold washi tape and stamped the sentiment from Irresistibly Ikat using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I used some Glossy Accents to adhere my sequins (4 sequins, Kelly – this time I *am* being a rebel!!), then added a couple of drops of it scattered on the leaves to give a ‘water droplet’ effect. And that was me all done!

Well, I have to craft up a storm today – so much still to create for! I’d love if you left me some love to cheer me on, and to let me know what you think of this card as well! Thanks so much for stopping by – enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  1. Very pretty card…love the shimmer and sequins. Thankfully I recently received both of those stamp sets, but I really need some Color Shine. I think you have motivated me to get them pronto! Thank you for the inspiration, Taheerah.

  2. I'm so lovin' gold splatters these days and you've done them perfectly. Good to know that you can stamp with mists to get the watercolor effect too. Great choice of a stamp for this technique.

  3. gorgeous!! I love how you used the latest color trend too – mint (kind of), coral and gold!
    Rah, rah, shish, boom, bah!! That's my cheer to help you get all you want accomplished done ;o)

  4. I *knew* there was shimmer there, before I read the description! Good job capturing it, I have tremendous trouble photographing such subtle effects :/
    Gorgeous and artsy card, you're making me want to pull out my paints again! 🙂
