This first card was soooo very simple! We used a product called Flower Soft on the tops of the flowers. I chose to use this product because a couple of weeks ago, some of my students & I went to the Heirloom Stamp Festival in Allentown, PA. One of the make 'n takes was with Flower Soft, and it was so much fun to use! I mentioned that I had some of this, and the girls wanted to use it on a card, so what's my motto? You ask for it, you get it! The cardstock was Perfect Plum & Whisper White; Herb Expressions stamp set; Framed Tulips embossing folder; Perfect Plum ink and an Old Olive 1/4" grosgrain ribbon bow. Simple!
This next card was watercolored because another student stated that she wanted to try watercoloring. We used watercolor paper, Cajun Craze & Early Espresso cardstock; Black StazOn ink and the following watercolor crayon colors: Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Basic Gray, Always Artichoke, More Mustard & Pumpkin Pie. We also used a buckle from the retired Hodgepodge Hardware in Aged Copper on some 1/4" Twill Tape. The embossing folder was one of Tim Holtz's Alterations called Woodgrain.
And, finally, this last card had lots of techniques: 3-step stamping, stamping off, Color Spritzer, Distressing, and our Pearl Jewels. I used our retired notecard & envelopes, but you can still get them ... they're just a little bigger than these. We stamped using the retired Roses in Winter set (love, love, LOVE this set! I just used it on this month's scrapbook spread!), with Regal Rose, Old Olive, Marina Mist & Basic Black inks. We used the Chocolate Chip marker in the Color Spritzer tool, and the Tea Stain inkpad from our Distressing Kit.
