Mixing It Up - Color Bursts

Welcome back!  This month I'll be playing with some Ken Oliver Color Bursts!  I used them along with the Oopsy Daisy stencil to create two backgrounds!

I started by cutting a panel of watercolor paper.  Then I sprayed the stencil with some Pixie Spray to be sure the stencil would keep good contact with the paper.  Then I also used masking tape to hold them both in place.  Then I sprinkled some Color Burst powders over the top.

You'll get the best result using a fine mister because the water will seep under the stencil even with the adhesive.  I spray just a light amount of water over the top... and the magic starts to happen.

Then I used a paintbrush to move the colors around.  I added a little water here and there.  You can be really careful to fill in all of the spaces, but I prefer a more distressed look.  I also didn't blend too much so as not to mix all of the colors together.  If I get a little too much water, I'll dab it a bit so too much water doesn't seep under the stencil.

So pretty right???  

Even better... I sprinkled a little extra powder onto the stencil and sprayed it a bit and flipped it over onto another panel and another cool look!

Using a circle as a matte and created a scene with some images from Springtime Bunnies and Lovely Unicorns that I stamped, fussy cut and colored with Copics.  I love how it's so easy to mix and match images from the shop!

A sentiment and a few sequins and done.  I'll be sharing another card tomorrow using the second panel I created in this session.

Thanks for stopping!  I hope you enjoyed it and you'll come again soon!

Mixing It Up - Ins & Outs

Mixing It Up - Ins & Outs
Welcome back!  Today I'm sharing with you a card I made using the new Rub A Dub Doggies stamp set along with some fabulous stencils from the shop!  The new Ins & Outs Masking Stencils are SO fun and versatile!  You are gonna love them!
One of the things I love about these sets is the extra embossed lines that help you line the stencil up with the panel you are blending onto.  Mine was already die cut and I lined it up with the inside rectangle.
I started with the Marquis Ins & Outs Stencil and used some Pixie Spray on the back of the stencil to keep it in place.  Then I blended some clouds within the frame opening using the Scene Builder: Clouds stencil.
Then I used the Scene Builder Stencil clouds to create some green hills.
And the center piece from the Ins & Outs: Victorian to create a little less hilly hill in front.
Finally, I lined up the outside frame again, but this time I lined up my ink blended scene area to line it up just in case I was a little off the first time.  More important to have the outline lined up with the inside frame.  I blended some of the blue I used for the cloudy sky and then added some Glitz Glitter Gel.
So fun!  And you know how I love frames.. no foam tape needed for this one!
All that was left to do was stamp, cut and color my images and add them to the scene.  Almost sad to cover up that background... but.... these pups are so cute who cares!?!
And I always love to add a few images with my sentiment and the bubbles are perfect for that!
And in case you wanted these...
That's me for today!  I hope you enjoyed it and you'll come again soon for more Miss Ink Stamps Inspiration!
