I have two cards today done in similar techniques but the stamps are used in different ways.
I am at Freya's House, helping with laundry today.
Even in doing the mundane things such as laundry, I find
the magic of gratitude
in my day's moments.
Each accomplished feat is a moment of Life, and Life is where the Magic happens!
Begin with lavender cardstock to pick up the other lavender elements in Scenescape Woodland Walk background paper. Stamp with Twilight VersaFine Clair to make a purple-blue inky color and heat set with clear EP that contains glitter. Distress with purple and pink dye base inks. With Prismacolor pencils (not watercolor), shade certain areas in white, pale green, gray and pale pink. (these pale colors will show up atop the dark ink colors).
I used the green celadon pencil, to make the lavender paper and green celadon pick up the colors in the Scenescape. For a little more detail, use PC1008 and PC932 in purple/pink tones.
Before stamping on the Scenescape, arrange your stamps to be sure they fit:
With CARD ONE, the sweet Snail helped us by chasing away unwanted critters - because WE ALL KNOW SNAILS ARE SO FAST ON THEIR FEET.
I positioned this card for the photography to keep most of the shine off the house - you can see the house's detail clearly:
Bubbles were stamped and glittered for more interest. Both cards were distressed with a combination of Twilight VersaFine Clair and Purple Delight VersaFine Clair BECAUSE I wanted distinct colors to show in the distressing - not just a flat purple against the green. The Scenescape was distressed with Twilight VersaFine Clair and heat set with purple EP that contains glitter:
When the light hits right, the house is quite glitzy and fun:
