STAMPlorations summer release - brave one


Welcome to day 4 of the STAMPlorations Summer Release. Today it's all about Brave One from Shery Russ.

Those single roses had my CAS-loving heart wanting to make a border. So I did. And fussy cut it. And added PP with the heat embossed sentiment to the inside. Then I die cut a window from the front and pepped it all up with a splash of sequins.

Wow orange embossing powder
Altenew ink
sequins

For my next card, I finally gave a technique from Yana S. a try and it was love at first pencil stroke. Stamped and heat embossed the vines, keeping the placement of the die cut sentiment in mind. Colored a few parts of the images with Prismacolors. Added the die cut, stacked and heat embossed sentiment and finally Nuvo drops. (The colors in the second photo are truer!)

Wow yellow embossing powder
Prismacolor colored pencils
Nuvo drops


I just love the smoothness of those blended colors though the card is not typical "me" ;)

Have you tried colored pencils on dark cardstock yet? Do you like it?

Great cards, Maria. I love the combination of bright colours in your gorgeous "Bravo" card. Having those vines trail from the die-cut sentiment and adding the sweet butterflies really makes this unique card shine. Thanks so much for joining our Happy Little Stampers July Challenge.

GREAT cards! I especially like the top card! I like how you have the flowers on the bottom edge and then halfway cut to make them look like they are hanging! Very cool!!

Very pretty designs! Love the blue & yellow of the first card.
The 2nd card is so lovely and I like the dimension of the Nuvo drops.
