He loves me…he loves me not…

Ok…going a tad bit out of my comfort zone for this card but I really wanted to try something different. I wanted to use the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Flower Garden collection. Iìve tried several times to use it but have never like how anything turned out so today I was determined!

I was playing around with my Distress Oxides and realized that the only color I hadn’t used was Iced Spruce. Don’t know why as it is such a pretty muted green.  I had seen on a You Tube tutorial by Carol Held of Carol’s Craft Room how she mixed the Distress Oxide with a translucent medium. So, I set oI stamped the daisy in the position that I wanted with the Curved Square frame from Spellbinders on top, not sure how I wanted to go with it. I then fussy cut other stamps of the daisies. Since I did not have a stencil that I liked I used an old background die from Spellbinders Fancy Lattice and used that. I mixed the Iced Spruce distress oxide with translucent embossing paste, applied it and let it dry. I then colored around the image on the card with distress oxide, thought it too light so I went back in with some distress markers in Pumice Stone and worked my way out. I colored in the disk area with Copic markers, G85 and G99, but decided to leave everything else white. then glued them on top of the frame.

The final product is rather monochromatic but I think it works quite well and I am pleased with the result.

Ciao, Lisa


Stavo giocando con i miei colori Distress Oxid di Tim Holtz e ho notato che l’unico colore che non avevo usato ancora era il Iced Spruce. Non so perchè non l’ho usato ancora ma  è veramente bello come colore; un verde molto muto. Avevo visto in un tutorial di You Tube di Carol Held (Carol’s Craft Room) come mescolare il Distress Oxide con il embossing paste traslucido. Così, ho impostato la stampa nella posizione che volevo sopra il telaio Curved Square di Spellbinders, non so come volevo andare con esso. Poi ho tagliato altri stampe delle margherite. Dal momento che non ho avuto uno stencil che mi è piaceva, ho usato un fustello di Spellbinders. Ho mescolato l’inchiostro Distress con la il embossing paste traslucida. Poi ho colorato intorno all’immagine lo stesso colore di inchiostro ma ho pensato che fosse troppo sbiadito, quindi ho ricolorato intorno l’immagine con i marker Distress di Tim Holtz in  Pumice Stone.. Ho colorato nell’area centrale del fiore con i markers Copic, G85 e G99, ma ho deciso di lasciare tutto il resto bianco. Quindi incollarli sulla parte superiore del telaio.

Il prodotto finale è piuttosto monocromatico, ma penso che funziona abbastanza bene e sono soddisfatto del risultato.
