One Layer Card with Multi-Color Layering

Happy Sunday, friends!

I am often gravitated to solid floral images.
When the Penny Black's Timeless release became available, I find this cling stamp "At Glance"
s
 was calling my name.... ๐Ÿ˜€
After much stamping, this was the result!
enjoy the moment

This card is all about the control of water and inking.
 Distress Ink allows you to layer and mix each color seamlessly.

enjoy every moment

With a piece of acetate plastic, I applied ink-smooshing in each layer.
I can easily pick up the colors and layer it over another.

The clear-embossing helps to cover the stamped image and makes the colors pop!
enjoy the moment

Did you know that I also used an additional stamp for the foreground? Yeah...why not!?
I only used the tips of this stamp set "A Floral Twist".
s 
Don't forget to take breaks in between each color-layering.
 I find that it helps to add even more layers to the colors and added textures.

enjoy the moment

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Virginia's Versatile Vases Series #2

Hello friends!
Welcome to my 2nd installment of Virginia's Versatile Vases series.
This series to explore the possibilities of Versatile Vases Stamps/ Die and Mask Bundle.
(all product links are listed at the end of this post)


I wanted to create a Clean and Simple card this time.
There are just a few key elements in this CAS design: Vase,  Flowers, sentiment and background.

always thinking of you-001


I deiced to do a little bit of flower arrangement with Dotted Bloom.
The watercoloring is perfect with the Vase and floral images.

always thinking of you
For the Vase, I actually colored it with the silver brush marker from Winter Watercolor Color Palette Bundle.  With all the coordinating dies, the Vase and flowers make such a dynamic duo.

I grounded the image with the smaller stamp set "Shades of Love". 
This stamp "Shades of Love" may be small, but it is awesome to add details! I highly recommend it!
 
always thinkinf about you

I decided to zero in the blue and purple shades.
The new release stamp "Wallpaper Art Stamp" is perfect for watercoloring.

Altenew-WallpaperArtStampDieBundle-Virginia#1

For the green, I mixed a few of the green and blue in the leaves. I also stamped the background with the Trendy Circle Stamp Set.  AND because the watercolor match with Altenew's Ink, it was super easy to find inks that will coordinate with my water-colored images.

Altenew-WallpaperArtStampDieBundle-Virginia#2

I added a bit of textures with Feeling Dotty Stencil and Embossing Paste.
As you can see, I had a lot of fun coloring the image and stamping the background.

Stamp an Abstract Image with a Feminine Twist

Hello friends!

Hope you are having a great day so far....
I am sharing a quick post with "One Day At A Time" Stamp set. 
s

With the release blog hop, some of you show interest in this stamp set...
some of you were intrigued. 
My previous card is gender-neutral.
Altenew-OneDayatATime-Virginia#1

I thought it would be a good idea to see a different take with a feminine twist. 
love you-002

There are three things you can easily do in turning a graphic image into a feminine design.

1. focal point: always use the colors to your advantage! I used fuchsia, yellow, orange and purple. It's easy and effective. 

love you-003

2. the background: in this card, I partially stamped Book Club stamp image in the background. You can use any color with a floral stamp. I decided to match the colors with the focal Point.

3. embellishments: this is the easy part. Use sequins, glitter, bling...and enamel dots! For masculine cards, I tend to use almost minimal embellishments.

More about this card: the image was clear-embossed. I stamped the edges of the Focal Point with small stamp like "Shades of Love". I hand-stamped each line and glad that it turned out fine.

love you-001

Hope you like my little "analysis" of this card!
Altenew offers a FREE brand new Floral Spray Stamp Set (value $4.99) with every order

s

Lastly, I want to point out that there is an exclusive Altenew/Scrapbook.com Stamp Set
called "Rose Bloom". 

 It comes as a stamp set (no coordinating die). I hope to receive this stamp set soon.
