Team Tuesday with Jeanne

Ever made an ATC?

Cut your cardstock (or whatever paper you plan to use) to 2 1/2" by 3 1/2" and get decorating! Think small!
ATC's are great to have around to add to a card base for a quick card.

Here is a template that shows how to cut 10 ATCs from one sheet of cardstock.



I created the background by placing one of the solid circles from Technique Junkies Here We Go Round in Circles (set of 12) on my Mini  MISTI, misting with water (just a little) and then tapping a few grains of Color Burst (Alizarin Crimson and Lemon Yellow from the Brights Collection)onto the stamp. I misted with water again (again very lightly) and stamped onto watercolor paper.


Repeat until you have a pattern you like.


Here is my pattern.


I stamped the a few of the images from Technique Junkies 60's Chic in the center of my circles to 
create  a flower look. 


I stamped Technique Junkies Love You in black over the top of my flowers, trimmed and added a mat.

Technique Tuesday Blog Hop & Giveaway

Do you have pets? I do, and I think that everyone who does at some point has to admit that their pet is better than most people in the world. :)

We love our furry friends, and we love STAMPS featuring our furry friends most of all.

I laughed so hard when I saw this hilarious stamp set from Technique Tuesday. I could not wait to make this card. It would be pretty hard to stack up against my awesome kitties, that's for sure. This stamp set does come with matching dies.

I used my beloved woodless watercolor pencils and a water brush to color the little kitty, which I stamped in Fadeout ink. Then I stamped the sentiment with Nocturne Ink and added these gorgeous embellishments from Honey Bee. These are my favorites lately. Not more favorite than my cats, of course...

Waffle Flower Over-Stamping with The MISTI




Before I left for vacation, I stamped out a lot of images to color.  I just received my Faber-Castel Polychromos Pencils and I wanted to practice.   The first thing I did was create a swatch card for my pencils.  It really helps to see what colors look like on different kinds of paper.   I colored on both white and kraft cardstock.


The plus side of colored pencils is that you can use an eraser.  It may not completely erase, but at least the project is not totally ruined.  Another plus of colored pencils is that there is no drying back.  The color you see on the paper is what you get.


For my cards, I used Spring Time, Summer Time and Autumn Time from Waffle Flower.   I just colored away with no plan.  After, I over-stamped with Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink and used clear embossing powder.  Then I die cut them with the coordinating dies.  Some easy ink blending for back grounds.  I played around with placement until I found arrangements I liked and I adhered everything down with foam tape.  I kept it simple and did not add embellishments.  Mainly because I couldn't find a look I liked. 

Thanks for stopping by!
