This is my first time posting for the Auzz Trinklets N Crafts blog, I'm so honoured to be a part of Auzz Trinklets N Crafts Design Team and can't wait to show you my creations.
This month's theme is Rainbows and I have a cute colourful card to show you all.
First I used Poppy Crafts 210gsm Premium White Cardstock to cut my card base at 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches, and folded it in half. Then I cut my card front at 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 inches.
I used the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform to stamp the circles from Lawn Fawn's "Let's Bokeh" with Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Abandoned Coral, Shaded Lilac, Spun Sugar, Squeezed Lemonade, Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon). The Stamp Platform is amazing because it lets you stamp repeatedly in the same spot, which is fantastic when using Distress Inks in particular.
I stamped the bear from My Favorite Things "Friends Furever", the paintbrush and pail from Lawn Fawn's "Chirpy Chirp Chirp" and the little rainbow from My Favorite Things "Magical Unicorns" on to watercolour paper with Versafine Onyx Black ink. Tim Holtz Distress Inks are also great for watercolouring, which I did using a regular paintbrush. I added White Blizzard Nuvo Drops to the paint brush and the paint pail. To add dimension to the bear's eyes and nose I went over them with a black Sakura glaze pen.
Using the same watercolour paper, I cut the stitched square from Lawn Fawn's "Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up". I stamped 'YOU COLOR MY WORLD' from Lawn Fawn's "Starry Backdrops" in Versafine Onyx Black, then heat embossed it with WOW! Clear Gloss embossing powder. To add some colour I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Wild Honey and Brushed Corduroy).
My card front was adhered to the base using an ATG gun. Art Glitter Clear Adhesive is great for attaching small pieces, like the paintbrush on to the bear's hand. I used X-Press It high tack foam tape to add dimension for the sentiment, bear, pail and rainbow.
