Today I want to show you two samples made with the lovely Mellow fruitfulness sheet, isn't it great? This time I've used the apples, the little cherries and the fruity border. These backgrounds were already waiting in my stash to be treated with some lovely stamps. On the first one I did also use the background fragment(one of my favorites) from the Dusky Damask sheet. The leafy border on the right is also a stamp from that sheet. The background was created using the acrylic bloc technique.(you can find this here)
I stamped the damask fragment onto damp paper so you can see only some vague patterns. I've embossed the word( Artistic expressions) with Wow Magical mauve embossing powder. I've stamped the apples with Memento red and some Memento Elderberry on the leaves. The leafy branch is stamped with Memento black. Than coloured them with colourpencils. And some accents with a white Sharpie marker. O, yes there are also some cherries at the top! Well I think I have never used such a vibrant red card, it is really popping!
Now onto the 2n one..........this is one of the backgrounds I've been playing with during the holidays.......lots of inks flowing, water misting and coloured fingers.......but we had fun doing that. I've used Shadow paint inks, they are similar to ecoline. Than I've stamped one of the fragments of the Harlequin fragments several times onto very wet paper, some less wet and some dry. Using different inks, like gold, white, orange and purple.
The fruity border from the Mellow fruitfulness sheet is stamped with Memento inks; Pear tart, Grape jelly and Morocco. It's easy to use the small Memento dewdrops for this.
I gave some structure to the top using an embossing folder and rubbing several Inca Gold waxcolours (Viva decor) over it. It creates a beautiful shine........
This way you can easily create a ten minutes card, look in your stash for a background paper( self made or scrap paper) and match your image inking up the same colors.
Here you can see the sparkle of the Wink of Stella marker on the border.
I also want to say thank you for your visit and your inspiring comments, always a joy to read! If you have any questions, please ask .........
creative greet and seize the day!
