Hi friends! Happy weekend! Happy Saturday! I'm going to a super fabulous and fun event today in the bay area! The awesome peeps from Queen & Company are having an all day crafting event and I'm heading down to help out and take pictures, etc. Looking forward to an AWESOME day of fellowship, laughter and great projects! I'll be on the road early....Keep an eye on my Instagram Stories for behind the scenes from the party! I hope that you have a wonderful and happy weekend.
Today I'm sharing a COOOOOOL, bright, and artsy card made with supplies from Waffle Flower Crafts! YES! You guys know I love Waffle Flower! One of their newer stamp sets spoke to me right away. It's called Little Painters. It has paint tubes, paint brushes, a palette, and cute critters too. I made a rainbow of brushes and tubes and then used some other Waffle Flower stamps and dies to create my own sentiment. I originally colored in these images with my Copics during the 30 Day Coloring Challenge. I finally made them into a card!
My card base is bright yellow Buttercup cardstock in A2 size. (My very favorite yellow cardstock!) I layered a white layer and splattered it with black craft ink and set that aside to dry. I had already colored my images with Copic Markers. I stamped and die cut out everything first and then had fun choosing a rainbow of bright colors including hot pink and lime green! A non traditional rainbow!
I used the Rainbows word die and the Rainbows stamp set to make my sentiment in the upper left corner. I used black to contrast with all the bright colors.
Here is the image of the stamp set! SO CUTE, right? The little animals can peek out from behind the paint brushes!! EEPS. I love all those brushes!!!
I cut and colored bunches of brushes and paint tubes so I just had fun rearranging them into a funky rainbow on the front of my card. All of the elements are attached using foam tape. I added some clear droplets to look like water splashing around. I also used a Gelly Roll Clear Glaze Pen to add clear dimension to the paint tubes, brush handles and paint.
I put the paint palette on the inside of the card since I had already colored it in!
I hope you're inspired by this card to create something today! Best wishes for a fabulous summer weekend! Can I just say that I ordered a WHOLE bunch of Fall papers and things the other day! I'm all about Fall and I'm anticipating Fall crafting already! For the past eight years I have had to do Christmas in July for my design team commitments. I am so happy to have a small break from that this year. I feel like I create better when it's the season at hand. There is plenty of time to do our Christmas crafting right? Have a blessed day! XOXO
