This is the prize package from JustRite Papercraft and


this is the prize package from Faber-Castell Design-Memory-Craft.


For my project I designed a card and I had fun with the Gelatos using them to create a wonderful background and also for water coloring the poppies image.


To start I stamped the floral image and sentiment from CL-04380 Poppies Lables Twenty Nine stamp set from JustRite Papercraft on to a piece of Simply Smooth White paper from DiscountCardstock.com.  I used VersaMagic Midnight Black ink from Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko and then I embossed it with clear embossing powder and my heat tool.


Next I scribbled the Gelatos--Green TeaRed Cherry and Black on to an acrylic block and used a water brush to watercolor the image.  I started with the Green Tea on all of the leaves and then I used Red Cherry for the poppies and Black for the flower centers.


I wanted to add just a hint of color around the floral image to soften it up so I lightly colored with Art Grip Aquarelle Yellow 105 and then I used a water brush to blend out the color.


Moving on the to background I used CL-04500 Grand Damask Background stamp and  Red Cherry and Black Gelatos.  I used the Gelatos to color directly on to the stamp.  I started with the Black Gelato in the center of each damask and then I went around the edge of the Black with the Red Cherry Gelato to blend the two colors.  Then I wiped off the end of the Red Cherry Gelato with a baby wipe to remove any of the black color that was mixed in. I finished the coloring by adding the Red Cherry Gelato on the outer edges of each damask image to get the deep red color.  I lightly misted the stamp with water and then stamped on to a piece of Simply Smooth White cardstock.


Here is a close up of the background.


I blended the background using my fingers and I started with the Black and then blended the Red Cherry.  I added a little more Red Cherry as needed.  Once I had the stamped image and the background done it was time to put my card together.


Here is a close up of my card.


I used Really Red cardstock for a base and then I die cut the damask background using S5-131 A2 Matting Basics A die template from Spellbinders Creative Arts™.  For the image of the poppies I used S5-156 Labels Twenty-Nine die template.  I thought the S2-004 Poppy Patch die template would make the perfect die cut to match the card.  I used Black Licorice cardstock and added some Recollections red bling to each flower.  I also added some 5/8" Black Crochet Lace Trim and Black Seam Binding from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  

Please be sure to visit the Designers in the link list below to see what they have created to share with you.  Don't forget to leave comments for your chance to win the fabulous prize packages.


Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Hugs & Smiles,
Heidi
