Hi friends, how are you all this week? I am back with another crafting blog featuring some awesome products from The Hedgehog Hollow June subscription box.
I really like the feel of this month’s products. There is something really different about the stamps and I dig it.
So this week I am bringing you two cards I have made using the stamps and the stencil. One of the cards requires no coloring and the other one has a really easy way to color it using watercolor pens, I used both zig and arteza for my project, but you can use whatever you have.
The first card I am showing you today is this super easy card I made using the stencil, the big stamp with the word “kind” and a smaller sentiment from the small stamp set in the box.
I actually made this card duding a live last week, so if you have a chance you should go check it out.
I secured my stencil to the paper using tape and picked primary colors for the inks I wanted to use and inked my paper until I was happy with it. When I was sure the ink was completely dry, I proceeded to stamp the sentiment on it using my misti and versafine detail ink in black.
To finish it off I put this panel on two mats of different colors and cut them out using Gina Marie Designs dies. I glued all my pieces together and the card is completed.
For the second card, which I believe I also made during a live over on my Facebook page “my life in my craft room”, I stamped the leaf from one of the stamp sets in the box in a few random places of my watercolor paper. I knew I was going to use watercolor pens so I made sure to use an ink that was safe for this.
Using watercolor pens in green, orange, red, purple and tan I put color on each leaf randomly until most of the leaf was covered. Then using a clean brush with just water I blended all the harsh lines so they would look more blurry.
I put a sentiment on it that I thought was relevant to the times we are living right now.
And that is it, I am happy with how both these cards turned out and I hope you enjoyed them too.
I will see you all again next week.
