Hey everyone! I am super excited to be joining these very talented ladies, for our very first Blog Hops with Heart! We are going to be sharing some fabulous projects! The best part to me is many of us will be sharing our love of Close to my Heart products, combined with other crafty companies we love! This month we are featuring the beautiful paper pack from Close to my Heart, Sangria.
I have two cards to share today. For my first card, I did a little faux water coloring to color my image. I wanted to add shading to the Peonies, so I used Eggplant ink full strength, and then added water to make a much lighter shade. I did the same for the leaves using Olive ink. After I had let the image dry a bit, I masked and stamped again with Gold pigment ink...so the gold ink would give an outlined effect. I will list all the supplies at the very end of my post, in case you are curious.
Thank you so much for stopping by to see my cards! Next up on the hop is Amy McVey, you won't want to miss her fabulous card! I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with love and laughter!
