Thanks so much for stopping by! I have a special post today, a blog hop in honor of the super talented Kelly Latevola! You should have, hopefully, arrived from Linda Trace's blog, if not, no worries. You can start the hop, HERE. So, I have had the pleasure of crafting with Kelly at one of our monthly get-togethers, and let me tell ya! She is super fun to be around, and so funny! I wish I could see her face when finds out about this! If you aren't familiar with her, or her series, you can check out what she did with a couple of my cards, back in June, HERE.
So, if you aren't familiar with what Kelly does on her blog, she takes three cards from a crafter whom she is inspired by, and creates a card based on those three. Super fun idea! I chose these three cards of hers, which, in my opinion, are A-mazing! From these cards, I was inspired by:
1. Watercoloring - because, I love it.
2. The bold colors
3. Her use of black sentiments
I took those things and created my own card, featuring a bit of watercoloring, bold colors, and a bold black sentiment. I even made a video of how I made it! You can watch it below.
To start, I took a piece of watercolor paper, and applied Twisted Citron, and Mowed Lawn to the wet corner. I then set it aside, and stamped out my poinsettias from Avery Elle's Christmas Florals set, with Altenew's Ruby Red ink. I also stamped out the leaves, using Forest Glade, and Evergreen inks. I then die cut them all out.
Using my MISTI, I stamped my sentiment in Versamark ink, and then adhered the panel to a white card base with a piece of foam.
I then began to arrange my images onto the front, and adhered them when I placed them where I wanted them. I finished it off with some lovely Clear Sparkling Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
I hope you were inspired! Please be sure to hop along, and leave comments for a chance to win any number of goodies from the generous sponsors! Thanks again for joining me today! Have a great one.
Lindsay Amrhein (that's me!)
