Welcome to the Summer Fun Collaboration Blog hop with Newton's Nook Designs and Studio Katia!
Both teams are celebrating the start of summer with fun and colorful cards using stamps from Newton's Nook Designs and dies and embellishments from Studio Katia. There's prizes too! Both companies have a prize to give away too so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!
It is feeling a lot like summer where I live today!! The sun is shining and the temperatures are rising!! And what better way to cool down than with a delicious ice cream treat. For my project, I used the incredibly cute and delicious Summer Scoops stamp set. This set is full of images that are just so fun to colour. And because the images have nice large spaces, I thought I'd do the no-line watercolour technique.
I first stamped a few of the images in a random pattern onto a panel of watercolour paper. I used Antique Linen Distress Ink. I then chose some summer-y colours of my Tombow Dual Brush Markers. I like doing watercolour with markers the best because of the control I have. I didn't fuss around too much. Basically, I added one layer of solid colour, then went back to add a wee bit of detail.
When my colouring was complete, I used the largest die from the Darling Ribbon and Dotted Frames Creative Die Set to get the dot detail on the outer frame. I then lined up the rectangle die from the NEW Dotted Patterns Set 1 Die Set to cut out the inner portion. I adhered the outside frame directly to my card base and used pink fun foam on the inner panel to give some dimension.
And for a bit of extra sparkle and shine, I of course, used some of my favourite sequins, Crystal Rainbow Fusion!!
Now for the fun stuff...
