Okay as promised here is the last of my Artisan Award entries for 2012. I had a blast creating them and I am now so ready to start sharing a whole bunch of new projects starting tomorrow! I'll warn you this is going to be a long post-feel free just to look at the pretty pictures,lol!
First up here is the other 3D project that I created. It is a My Digital Studio Hybrid project and is intended to be a bedroom door sign for a boy. My son has already made me promise to recreate it for his room-guess I should get on it:)
For those of you that may not be to familar with MDS as of right now there is no easy way to "colour in" a line image so I painstakingly coloured in the bottle of "awesome sauce" using various punches. Tendious yes, but so worth it. The good news is that on August 1st Stampin' Up! will be releasing the new MDS2! There will be an upgrade available for those that already have MDS and with it comes 75 new features-I can't wait!
Next is another one of the cards I created. Rainbows are so popular right now in paper crafting and I tought it would be fun to create a water coloured one that also uses the emboss resist technique.
I stamped the sentiment on Water Colour Paper using VersaMark Ink then heat embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. I then took an Aqua Painter and sveral different ink colour to wash the colours across the paper. The embossed words then resisted the ink.
What is hard to tell from the photo is that the rainbow piece was also light sprayed with shimmer mist so it had a fine sparkle to it. The "here's to you" was stamped on Shimmery White Card stock then embossed with Black Embossing powder and sponged over top with Bashful Blue Ink.
And last but not least is another card. I really love water colouring so that is what I focused on with this one. Plus I just love how well one of the Four Frames stamps matches perfectly with the Elements of Style stamp set.
Now I know there are alot of people out there that are not lovers of the colour Bravo Burgundy but it looks stunning with Pink Pirouette. For the colour combo on this card I used it with Pink Pirouette, Always Artichoke and More Mustard. This was actually the first card I made for the contest.
