Happy Monday! So honored to start off the week with my first A Blog Name Hero blog post as a designer! I’m Meghan Peterson joining you from the Northwest where it is briefly sunny today.
A little background about me:
I was born and raised in Southern California, recently moved to Oregon where my boyfriend just started law school, and is loving the Northwest. She majored in English and minored in Econ, and right now is a receptionist. I started making cards almost as soon as she could hold a crayon and would deliver them via tricycle. I am super excited to be a part of A Blog Named Hero, where we celebrate an amazing and important company in this industry. My first stamps were Hero Arts! When I’m not making cards and exploring new artistic techniques, I love hanging out with my friends, my family and my boyfriend, shopping/make-up, reading/writing, hiking, exploring, traveling (whenever she has the money), and volunteering in elementary schools and animal shelters. So nice to meet you!
My first project as designer is a card using the new Flowering Magnolia woodblock stamp as my focal image. I have very little experience with colored pencils, but I thought this was the perfect stamp to color with colored pencil and I think it turned out pretty good! I then added a few white dots to the petals with a white gel pen.
Instead of masking off my flower, I just used a small ink dauber to blend a variety of greens and blues around the magnolia with distress inks. Then, using the Floral Frame die, I die cut my scene into an oval. Using the second detailed die in the set, I cut the frame out of gold glitter card stock. I adhered it to Kraft card stock, and added a strip of teal on the bottom.
My sentiment strip is from the Hello Stamp and Cut set, and added a few gems and it is complete!
Thanks so much for stopping by, so excited about this! You can also visit me on my blog: periwinklestudiodesign.com
