Happy Friday, almost-weekend, everyone!
We are here with Instagram Hop + Giveaway today for our latest release “Words of Thanks” for November 2021. :) If you don’t follow me on Instagram, please do so here. I would love to welcome you in our little tribe. We do share lots more inspiration (and entertainment) over there, than we do here on the blog alone. It’s a fun place to be and yes, every month we have giveaways too :)
This time I created a mini-slimline card for my stop with our Mini Slimline Pumpkin Patch stamp set.
I used PowerPoint to slightly adjust the size slightly and printed it on Canson watercolor paper. I usually do all my planning and printing at one time, so I also printed a couple more designs + sentiments. I die cut it with Spellbinders Mini Slimline die linked below.
For coloring I used Altenew and Daniel Smith watercolors. I don't own any of the whole paints from these, just the dot papers / samples from Simon Says Stamp. But they have plenty of pigment to play with.
For this piece I worked in layers and built the colors up one layer at a time. Lastly I also went over all the lines again and added shading with my Pigma .005 micron pen.
On one side I foam mounted the sentiments after cutting them with dies from My Favorite Things Tag Builder set. I added a gold glitter washi tape to the lower side of a mini slimline gray cardbase and mounted my finished panel. Lastly I added just a few gold gems to bring in a little more of the gold and finish my project.
