Hey everyone! Happy Tuesday!
So it’s time for the Neat & Tangled March Release! You will go absolutely crazy for the awesomeness we’re bringing you for this month!! Definitely something for everyone, with some super-versatile sets!!
Today I’m helping to introduce a new set called My Favorite. This is an adorable little set featuring a some more of that awesome hand-lettering style that made Hope Anchors so popular!! I really love this one so so much!!
I wanted to capture a soft, dreamy watercolour-like look, where you ‘feel’ more than you ‘see’. Here’s what I came up with:
I’ll let you decide if I accomplished that or not, but I really love how it turned out!
I started by heat embossing that gorgeous sentiment onto a Pure White card base, stamping with Versamark ink and heat embossing with WOW! Clear Semi Dull embossing powder. I then watercoloured using Distress Inks in Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick, intensifying the colour around the edges of the letters so they would stand out more. When dry I ironed the card between some sheets of paper to remove the embossing powder and stamped some hearts using the stamp from the Just Thinking of You set, stamping with GinaK White Pigment ink.
I went over the card again with a wash of Simon Says Stamp ink in Sea Glass, also adding some touches of gold created from Heidi Swapp Colour Shine Mist in Gold Lame. I added some flecks of colour and repeated my trick of heat embossing some of the hearts, watercolouring around them then ironing off the embossing powder. I think the more I look at the finished result the more I like it!!
I do strongly encourage you to visit the Neat & Tangled Blog to see what the rest of the DT has created and to hop along and leave them some love!
Thanks so much for stopping by – I would love it if you left some love before you went on your way!
