Good evening! Jessica here for the Third Day of Christmas at A Blog Named Hero! If you missed it we’re celebrating over the next ten days with some fabulous crafty celebrities! Today I’m hosting the super talented Kelly Rasmussen who has a gorgeous watercolored card to share!
Kelly stamped the Peace and Joy image in antique linen distress ink and then carefully watercolored over the top. It gives the appearance that it was hand-written rather than stamped!
I love the look of this card and the way she blended the colors in the “handwritten” sentiment! So pretty!
My card for today uses just a little bit of stamping, no watercolors (shocking for me, I know!), and a ton of glitzy bling! 😉
I have a bad habit of forgetting about my wood-mounted rubber stamps but I was doing a little crafty organizing a few days ago and found this elegant stamp. I stamped the tree and sentiment on a kraft cardstock panel with versafine and heat-embossed it with clear powder. Next I “decorated” my tree with a mix of purple and white gems and pearls. Then I swiped the edges of my card base with versafine and heat-embossed it with clear powder to create a shiny black frame for my kraft panel. To finish the card I adhered the kraft panel with foam mounting tape for a little extra dimension.
Thanks so much for visiting today and make sure to check back tomorrow to see what Michelle and our next crafty celebrity guest have created!
