I am so excited to participate in this Blog Hop showcasing the new release of Joy Clair Designs Springish Fiesta Collection 2022.
For my post today I have created two cards.
My First Card
I printed the heart image from the Always in Style Stamp set and the sentiment on a white card-stock. I cut the image using my silhouette cameo leaving a white border around the image. Then I foiled the image with gold foil and the laminating machine.
Started coloring the image using Copic markers. Used R24 R27 R29 for the heart. G24 G28 G29 for the leaves and vines and finally, C07 C05 and C04 for the lock.
Because the image was busy with foiling and coloring already I wanted the background to be really plain. So I embossed a black card-stock panel with the Spellbinders embossing folder that was out on my desk for another project already.
Added the image and the sentiment from Good Luck Stamp set beneath it using foam tape for dimension. To finish off I added some gold pearls and the card was done.
Usually my cards contains floral image and I am very comfortable with picking the design and color choices with floral cards. But this time I really challenged myself to use very different images than my regular floral cards.
For my second card today I picked this cute lollipops image from Joy Clair Good Luck Digital stamp set. Picked some of the lightest colors that I owned in my Copic collection in order to give these lollipops a transparent look.
When I printed the image I added the subtle floral textured pattern behind the image. I used R00, V12,B000 for the lollipops and R27 R29 for the ribbons, and finally E34 and E49 for the chocolate drips.
I had to add a little depth around the candy part of the lollipop to create roundness. Just similar color in slightly darker shades of Prismacolor pencils did the trick.
Finally finished off this card with a sentiment from Truly Inspire Stamp set and some white gel pen highlights wherever I thought would look good. My card was done.
