I am so sad that I didn’t have the chance to play and try all of the techniques yet. I was really excited about this technique. It didn’t turn out as beautiful as the samples, but I think I just need more (a lot more) practice.
I used a stamp from Hero Arts and the Sentiment is from a Mama Elephant stamp set.
This is what it looked like before I ruined the bottom by trying to emboss on a still slightly wet surface (haha, see? no patience!)
I can’t wait to play along and try more techniques~~ What a great class!!
Here is my take on Jennifer McGuire’s technique, using an acrylic block, versamark ink, and watercolor:
I used a Hero Arts birthday stamp set. 🙂 I used distress markers to color the cupcake, and added some sequins.
Finally, this is a mix of Jennifer McGuire’s technique (with the liquid mask) and Laura Bassen’s technique with the acrylic block and distress inks:
Instead of using the blocks to create straight lines, I went for a diagonal look. I used Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers, Squeezed Lemonade, and Picked Raspberry for this card. I used a precision tip tool, put masking fluid in it and wrote the sentiment. I then added drops of masking fluid here and there to create the dots. 🙂
This is my take on Kristina’s video and watercoloring on an embossed background:
I used a Hero Arts background stamp, and a Hero Arts Birthday stamp. The watercolors are the same Sakura Koi.
Here is a closeup:
I loved this class!
Here are a few of my cards demonstrating Day 1:
I really loved Jennifer’s take on using the stencil over a wet background. I actually tried a few times, but, due to my impatience, I messed it up a few times. 🙂 So, though I love this technique, it is hard for me because I hate waiting! haha~ But, I really love the way this turned out.
I used watercolor paper from Simon Says Stamp. The watercolors are the Sakura Koi Sketch set (got it for Mother’s Day, love my hubby!) The wood veneer is from Michael’s, I forget which set. I used a Studio Calico stencil. I then liberally sprayed with Radiant Rain in Ice.
