Flower Power birthday card with video tutorial

http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Flower Power".



Flowers give me a lot of inspiration, to use them in my projects, but also because of their beautiful colors. For my card I used the Botanical Collage Paper. This is really beautiful on its own, but it's also fun to color it. This time I used Infusions to give the background a color as well as the botanical part. For the coloring I've used Matte Matte with the Infusions and a pencil.

 

Then I used MicroGlaze to apply a resist layer. Although I doubt whether it was necessary, since Matte Medium is also already resistant. Next time I'll try without it ... For the background I used 3 different colors of Infusions and let the colors flow together with water. After repeating this one more time, I also added some color with Infusions and a pencil in a few different places.

 

The card is reasonably dark of all the color which is perfect for adding some highlighting with a white pen. And because I've used MicroGlaze and Matte Medium, the white pen will stay white. I also used the Flickering Butterflies from the new Simon Says Stamp release.

Doodly Birthday card with video tutorial

http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Let's Doodle".



Doodling is something I'm not really good at, but I always like a challenge. I started to apply some texture by using the Tiles stencil together with some Texture Paste. On top of that I applied Opal Magic Green and Violet-Gold paint. After everything was dry, it was time for Infusions. This time I didn't use any Mod Podge , but I immediately started working with Infusions and water. There was enough color there from the Opal Magic paint.

 

Then I started doodlin with a white pen, but because the Infusions react when they get wet, the white didn't stay white. Kept going anyway, but finally chose to go over it with a black pen. I also worked with a few doodle-like stamps, which I colored with different colors of Distress Oxide Ink.
