I had my Colour Your World Club on Sunday and we made the following two cards. The criteria for the club is that the projects MUST contain some colouring technique. The idea is that we all buy the crayons, markers, inks, etc but then we say "now what?". This club gives my customers some hands-on practise using their tools.
Two of the three cards at class used the new stamp set Friends 24-7 which I love, especially when used in combination with the matching Friendly Words Stampin' Around Wheel.
I used the direct to rubber method for this card. Lightly spritz the bird with water so that the Watercolour Crayons glide over the surface easier. Colour the bird and branches with the crayons and then lightly spritz the entire image again. Stamp on Watercolour Paper and let dry. You can then go in and add some details with the Aqua Painter and crayons (the eye and line down the back of the bird).
I used the faux tearing technique on the top of the card with a ripped piece of paper, sponge and Whisper White Craft Ink. I add the flower image with the WW craft in to the bottom of the card and overstamped the sentiment in Basic Black. Then I added some piercing to create some dimension.
For this card I used the Friendly Words wheel and inked it up by running it over a Sahara Sand classic pad. I then used the Not Quite Navy marker (brush end) to add colour to random images on the wheel. Then just wheel over your cardstock as always. The colour of the card is also Sahara Sand so it's difficult to see in the picture but it's very nice in person. The ribbon is the new Organdy ribbon which my customer's loved! It is so elegant and adds the right touch to finish the card. I did put a piece of NQN paper under the ribbon to add some colour behind it.
If you love this stamp set/wheel you might want to consider my new Stamps in the Mail University class which starts this month. Check out the details in this flyer which describes how the program works – if you have any questions please email me.
