Hi there! Today I´d like to share two cards with you that I created for Frog Dog Studio as a Guest Designer with their October Limited Edition Kit. I´ve also used the “Halftone Circles” and the “Four Ferns” stencils on these cards.
Here is a little tutorial on the cards:
For this card I used a piece of that watercolor paper as a background and added some black (Magicals by Lindy´s Stamp Gang) splatters over the surface. You might have noticed by now how much I like to use color splatters ;-). Next I took some structure paste, mixed it with the black “Magicals” powder to get a darker tone and applied it over a The Crafter´s Workshop “Halftone Circles” stencil.
Next I created flowers out of punched paper circles. I layered different papers over each other to create layered flowers. The leaves are fussy cut and glued down partly under the flowers. I also stamped a scallop border onto the card with black ink and fussy cut along it to add more interest to the card.
For final detail I again added some dimensional pearls into the centre of the flowers and finally stamped my sentiment.
For the next card I used similar techniques as on the card shown before (watercolor background, added some molding paste, punched circles etc.). It is just a different stencil I used here (“Four Ferns”) and there are some wooden buttons for decoration. Also I stamped another sentiment and a different border for this one. Other than that, it is done in the same way.
I hope you like these ideas!!
See you soon again,
